  • Own the design of the highest-priority experiences and flows that are simple, intuitive and elegant and partner with production designers to flesh-out the extent of the system
  • Collaborate with product management to establish and execute solution roadmaps for progressive, experiment-based deployment
  • Work side-by-side with engineering to develop the solutions via iterative sprint-based launch cycles
  • Learn through performance metrics, customer interviews and usability testing - how to tune/improve the experiences and re-factor strategy and product roadmaps accordingly

  • Experience developing multi-channel product and service-based experience strategies 
  • Experience developing and delivering strategic vision for new products and services to deliver against business goals
  • Experience leading customer/partner workshops to drive ideation and alignment

  • Experience designing for both desktop and smartphones preferred
Extra Credit:
  • Experience developing embedded tools and widgets within partner experiences
  • Experience developing SEO/SEM-focused solutions that drive customer acquisition 
About you:
  • Wants the ball, can command the room, own the whiteboard, and roll up your sleeves to knock out the work
  • Naturally curious and excited to learn, are always listening, and always have a strong POV
  • Seeks feedback, happy to iterate, and enjoys collaborating with others
