- Sketch and prototype ideas to assess viability of a solution early on in the design process
- Validate design solutions with our different target audiences, using both qualitative and quantitative methods

- You have a Product Design or UI/UX design portfolio with multiple case studies of products you worked on
- You can think through complex interaction problems with a systematic approach and attention to detail
- You have experience creating complex interaction design, user experiences, flows and prototypes with high-fidelity visuals
- You are able to discuss and explain your design decisions and back them up by applying customer insights and business metrics
- You are comfortable giving and taking feedback, and apply feedback to final designs
- You can handle multiple projects at the same time and are able to adjust priorities as our business needs change
- You are comfortable with ambiguity and thrive in the fast paced environment of an early-stage startup that is operating remotely around the globe
- You have strong collaboration and relationship building skills that allow you to build cross-functional relationships
We typically expect candidates with at least 5 y. of experience in a Product Designer role to have the skills mentioned above.
Bonus points if…
