We expect you to have a pragmatic mindset and be able to work in a fast-moving environment while juggling many responsibilities. In addition, we expect you are always pro-actively looking for qualitative and quantitative data-driven feedback on your designs, and are open to discuss engineering requirements.

What we’re looking for
- A portfolio demonstrating relevant design capabilities.
- 3+ years of working experience in a scale-up environment.
- Interest in using data and user research to inform design decisions.
- Pragmatic mindset. You do not see product design as an art, but as a way to achieve business goals.

- We design for emotion. We create interfaces that are pleasurable and have meaning, not just usable.
- You can create clickable prototypes and can come up with complex micro interactions.
