  • fulfill product requirements

  • work within the context of a broader product direction

The ability to create a range of design deliverables for a broad set of target devices and form factors is a must. You can expect to work on everything on mobile and web apps as well as things like Chrome extensions. You will be responsible for bringing ideas from rough sketches to high fidelity interactive wireframes and working with front-end development teams to ensure that delivered product adheres to the UX design.

  • Work with the Product Design Manager, Product Managers, and other designers to clarify requirements and user stories

  • Develop and deliver high level and detailed storyboards, concept diagrams, user interface sketches, mockups, prototypes, and detailed design specifications to effectively communicate interaction and design ideas

Required Skills & Experience
  • A strong portfolio comprised of projects which demonstrate strategic, creative, and user centered design solutions to complex software problems

  • Experience with responsive, cross-browser, and mobile design

  • Able to test design ideas using CSS and Javascript, or prototyping software, as a way of building interactive proofs of concept

  • Familiarity with agile, iterative design processes

  • 3 - 5 years of experience with software design best practices

  • Experience operating in a startup environment (ie. working autonomously, needing little direction, comfortable with ambiguity, etc.)

  • Must be organized, able to work independently, and able to quickly change focus between different projects

Bonus Assets
  • User research, usability testing
