  • Solid understanding of HTML/CSS and Javascript.
  • Deep respect for product design systems and brand design systems and the ability to work within them.

  • You believe in outcomes over output and understand the the tactics required to differentiate between the two.
  • You are a life-long learner. Finding and sharing new design tools and processes, new technical areas, and better ways to get things done.

Not a dealbreaker, but it'd be great if you have....

  • Experience designing and have built creative tool interfaces
  • Experience working on marketing, entertainment or content management solutions.
