You’ ll collaborate with product managers, engineering leads, marketing specialists and other designers all over the world to craft intuitive and delightful experiences for our users, and you’ ll use a mix of data, intuition and experience to make our vision a reality.

  • Five to six years of experience as a UX designer, with two to three years as a design lead. If you have a background designing complex solutions with multiple interaction points, all the better.
  • Deep understanding of standard user-centered design methodologies such as crafting surveys, leading focus groups, uncovering user journeys, building personas, information design, wireframe development, user testing, iterating, visual design, documentation and production
  • A proven history of working with and directing design resources, including outside agencies.
  • The ability to coordinate and manage the entire design pipeline, including team meetings, work assignments, design documentation and production schedule.
  • Experience designing for various mobile platforms. You should have a deep understanding of mobile-first and responsive design.
  • Experience with UX software such as Adobe CC, Axure, Sketch, Zeplin, InVision, UXPin, Framer.js and the like. The ability to write front-end code is a plus.
