You will demonstrate a second-to-none UX mindset with an ability to contribute to conversations regarding UI topics with collaborators such as our design systems team. 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: You have the mindset and methodologies to understand customers. You delight first and foremost in serving their needs effectively.
