  • Ability to translate UX hypotheses into sketches and rough prototypes of visual design, information architecture, and behavior/interaction design
  • Excellent visual, written, and verbal communication skills
  • Passion and proactive attitude toward your work, particularly for web, mobile and physical interaction design
  • Comfort coding rough prototypes in HTML, CSS, and Javascript to demonstrate design intent
What You Will Be Doing:
  • Participate in customer research and analysis of this research, to arrive at strategy
  • Develop and articulate design ideas that embody the strategy, both self-directed and in group sessions
  • Support the development of wireframes, user flow diagrams, sitemaps, visual and motion design and interactive prototypes

  • Participate in industry research and trends in digital experience
  • Join in and enhance our culture of deep empathy, curiosity, and passion for making
