What we look for in our Designers

 Our designers cover a lot of ground.

  •  They want to understand our customers and are happy to use discovery techniques to do it,
  • Get their team involved and make sense of the findings,
  • Design by thinking and sketching and mulling and doing that over again,
  • Purposefully design in multiples, not just seeing one future,
  • Seek out critique and feedback to help improve themselves and their designs,
  • Take prototypes to users and are willing to change their mind.

Our philosophy is to make sure product designers are involved in the full lifespan of a project. Why? Because we are not our users. We want designers who jump into any domain, make sense of it and design a way forward.
