Define: Ensure a consistent, on-brand look-and-feel across channels and devices. Know where to leverage our design system and where to push the envelope. Build effective bridges to the Fundamentals design team in order to feed new component styles and micro-interaction patterns back into the overarching design system.

Design: Craft personalized modules and flows for responsive web and mobile apps, enabling highly desirable, intuitive interfaces. Go beyond screens with meaningful transitions and captivating animations. Critique and improve the work of your peers and incorporate their critique into your own work.

Deliver: Build prototypes to generate user insights. Work closely with developers (and spec your designs clearly) to get your designs built. Iterate to excellence based on data.


To land this job you will show and explain raw artifacts from various stages of the design process, demonstrating both your well-rounded experience and your stand-out skills.

Empathy: Understand customers and colleagues and delight first and foremost in serving their needs effectively.

Team Player: You are a great team player, experienced in working with agile teams. You are comfortable working closely with developers, product owners, and UX designers. You are able to communicate your ideas effectively to all stakeholders.

Craft: You are fluent in design techniques, principles, and tools. You are fluent in using and improving wireframes and style guides. You ensure that each detail plays into the whole.
