  • Apply both big-picture design thinking and attention to detail to complex technical issues in a fast-paced environment
  • Support the execution of the UX vision and be a contributor to the larger design community, setting high standards and driving best-practices

Your Qualifications

  • Experience working with global teams distributed across different time zones
  • Good designer's eye and know-how: high-bar for quality aesthetics, engaging interactions and accessibility
  • Strong communication, collaboration, and presentation abilities (English-language)
  • An advanced degree in Design, HCI, or a related field
  • An understanding of cloud infrastructure and experience with related platforms (e.g., AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform)
