  • Anticipate upcoming client and team needs, identify risks, and mitigate appropriately.

  • Continuously seek to be well-informed regarding new software and design concepts.
  • Understand the process of business development, and lead aspects of pitch creation in alignment with the overall sales story.
  • Contribute to team culture by acting as a coach and mentor to junior team members, modelling the behaviours and characteristics of a CM leader.
  • Be actively engaged with colleagues both within and outside of teams, promoting collaboration and inclusion.

You have:

  • 3-5 years of related industry experience in UX, product design, new media, information technology, communications, or library / information science.2-4 years of experience in the role of senior UX designer or equivalent role.
  • Effective communication skills, both orally and in a variety of written and diagrammatic forms.
