  • Deliver a user experience vision, and a plan for iterative updates in achieving that vision.
  • Build strong collaborative relationships with other product leaders in effectively executing that vision.
  • Be a tireless advocate for the user and evangelize the importance of user feedback, and data-driven decision making in informing great design.
  • Communicate evolution of design ideas clearly, consistently, and effectively to a variety of audiences and skill sets

What You'll Need:

  • 7 years of experience as a user experience professional or human factors engineer
  • 2 years of experience leading and/or managing design teams
  • Design portfolio with examples of digital design, and information visualization
