Position Overview:

As a Designer on the User Experience Team, you will be joining a small pod of cross-functional designers responsible for experiences bridging the entire customer journey - from the initial discovery of our products and services to the nitty-gritty details of in-product interfaces and interactions. You’ll collaborate closely with product managers, software engineers, marketing professionals, and business owners to advocate for users and create new and innovative features and workflows that take our customer’s ability to the next level. You’ll use Figma, Adobe Creative Suite, and other tools to prototype, validate, and refine your designs with users and stakeholders, as well as collaborate with development teams to implement your work.

If you have strong empathy for others, are always trying to find ways to improve experiences, have excellent communication skills, and want to work with other passionate individuals in a diverse and collaborative environment, we want to talk to you.
