  • Translating prototypes and ideas into beautiful, high-fidelity designs and user-flows

Requirements

  • End-to-end Product Design experience across UX, UI and Research with a portfolio that reflects this
  • Experience working within small, agile, cross-functional teams who deliver at pace
  • A general understanding of how design impacts development, along with a knack for creating designs that are technically feasible
