  • An experienced UX or interaction designer who loves to make the complex simple, and have the ability to effortlessly flex between the bigger picture, concrete problems and attention to detail
  • You put people, their real needs and experiences first, and have a deep understanding of UX methodologies, processes and principles
  • You have a portfolio of interaction design for mobile, web, desktop or embedded system applications that demonstrates end-to-end thinking from insight to concept to wireframes to finished shipped product
