- Product development experience
You have experience in rapidly designing, building, and shipping quality consumer products, working closely with cross-functional teams. You can share many shining examples of real work you've shipped, and what you learned along the way. Your design process is holistic, and includes user research, data-driven insights, eliciting team buy-in and rigorous iteration which enables you to prioritize and execute effectively.
- Product thinking
You thrive best when helping identify and refine problems to solve. You facilitate and draw the best design ideas from teammates. You have the ability to think at a high level about product strategy and vision (not just 'how it should look' but 'what we should build’). You can think and talk about the bottom line. Analytics don’t scare you, and you know which features can act as force multipliers on your company’s business model. You want to contribute to high-level strategic decisions with the rest of the product and executive teams.
- Cross-platform experience
You’ve shipped great experiences across several platforms. You know what translates from desktop and what doesn’t, or why you’d opt for one solution for iOS and another on Android.
You possess excellent communication skills: you are able to clearly articulate your design decisions. You like sharing your work, even if it’s still in progress, to bring the team along with you. You have a sharp ambiguity filter, always seeking to clarify what is unclear for yourself and others.
You know that design doesn’t end after you've shipped. You perpetually work with cross-functional teams to ensure our products maintain and deepen product-market fit with our users. You give and solicit feedback from other designers in order to continually raise our bar for quality.
- Technical skills
You’re a prolific designer with relevant work that you’re happy to share and discuss with us. You're familiar with common microinteractions in use (on mobile, web, desktop, etc), and have nuanced views on how to make many of them even better.
