- 5+ years of experience of UX design for digital products
- 3+ years of experience designing products using a design system
- 1+ years of experience overseeing the development or maintenance of a design system
- Self-starter able to work in an agile startup environment with other disciplines in quick design loops
- Deep knowledge of design principles and methods, with extensive experience in most skill areas, tools, and the UX Lifecycle.
- Experience overseeing other designers and giving actionable design feedback
- Experience leading cross-team efforts and collaborating with engineering, design and product management.
- Detail-oriented with strong knowledge of interaction and visual design as well as familiarity with information architecture; experience designing for all kinds of devices and screens
