  • Have a portfolio of elegant design that marries form and function. Iterations on your own work, based on user research and analytics, are a must.
  • Know that the best things are made together. You’re not just open to feedback from your colleagues, you actively seek it out.
  • Can articulate the reasons behind your process and your decisions, in words and pictures.
  • You’re open to feedback and actively seeking them. You work with engineers and product managers to make the experience a reality.
  • Bring a broad range of research, ideation, and prototyping methods to the table, and a desire to learn new approaches from your colleagues. If you don’t know something, you’re willing to find out.
  • Do this work because you love it. Good design determines how products feel and how they work, and you’ll go the extra mile to get it right.


  • 8+ years' experience designing digital experiences in a fast paced, cross-functional design and development team.
  • 3+ years' experience leading design efforts to successful outcomes and mentorship of junior designers.
  • Familiarity with a range of design methods, including lightweight research, user journey mapping, prototyping, and wireframes.
  • Refined typography and beautiful, balanced compositions come naturally to you.
  • Proficiency in whatever tools you use to build and communicate, and willingness to adapt to new tools.
  • The confidence to stand up for your informed point of view, and the humility to adjust it with new information.
  • The ability to bring stakeholders together to move projects forward.


  • A Master’s or Bachelor’s degree in an applicable design discipline.
  • Experience working with small businesses and consumer applications
