And a little bit of…

We believe that we're on the forefront of that discipline and are inventing the ways design and developer teams will be working in the future. So we're focusing on hiring Product Designers that we can mentor and help develop into modern Product Designers who are operating at the cutting-edge and inventing the future of our industry.

- Experience with or knowledge of a visual design tool like Figma, Bohemian Sketch or Adobe Illustrator;
