  • Have experience visualizing, owning, and executing the creation of product from initial concepts and wireframes, to collaborating with engineers on implementation in an agile environment
  • Have an understanding of design research, user experience design processes and methodology, as well as its value and how to integrate into work

  • Have experience with responsive design abilities handling various form factors
  • Strong knowledge of Sketch, InVision, Adobe Creative Suite, HTML, CSS
