Ideal candidate for UX Product Manager will be the one who defines what happens when the user clicks, taps, swipes, or pinches the card. Also sweet spot is understanding a problem domain, rapidly proposing design solutions to a problem, and communicating those solutions visually through sketches, user flows, wireframes, and low-fidelity mockups and prototypes.

• We'd love someone with a master's degree in Interaction Design, Human Factors Engineering, Human-Computer Interaction, Industrial Design, or related fields. . . but real-world experience, and proven track record of delivering results, are more important.
• Ability to absorb complex concepts in a regulated industry, manage ambiguity, and work autonomously.
• A willingness to take intelligent risks when proposing an idea, and a comfort with rapidly iterating and finding new approaches. You will need the ability to say, "here's an idea, if you don't like it, I have another one," without taking it personally.
• Competence with industry-standard tools: we use Sketch, InVision, JIRA, and Confluence.
• Solid conceptual understanding of accessibility, globalization, and behavioral telemetry are a plus.
• Design the user experiences and interactions for new product initiatives, proofs of concepts, and re-envisioning existing products.

• Communicate UX and interactions at various levels of fidelity, to various audiences: technical and non-technical, designers and non-designers.
• Work with creative and visual leads to co-evolve the final user experience.
• Work with technical leads and program managers to ensure the design solutions are feasible.
