- Create wireframes, mockups, user flows, and prototypes to communicate design solutions
- Evolve and establish look and feel for user interface, including some motion design.
- Develop and maintain specs, assets, documentation to support implementation and shared understanding across the team.
- Work in close collaboration with other members of the Product Design team to inform and improve studio-wide design processes and practices.
What do we value?
- Open-minded. Explore different points of view and different possibilities without being hindered by your own biases and preconceptions.
- Authentic. Be honest with yourself, your team, and your customers.
- Transparent. Fearlessly share your work and your thoughts at any stage of development.
- Meticulous. Find the details that matter most and lean into them.
- User-centered. Know your players. Talk to them. Cater to their needs and exceed expectations.
- Inspire your team to go beyond the status quo—know when to innovate and when to depend on tried-and-true conventions.
- Create momentum. Bring energy and make things happen. Fix problems, invent tools and processes. Push for better ideas.
