The Role…What you will do and need to succeed:
- Apply that passion to everything about the product (aesthetic, behavior, information architecture, messaging – anything that solves real-world problems).
- If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a prototype is worth a thousand pictures.
- You’re a try before you buy type of designer…you prototype (low and high fidelity) to convey interaction design to developers, stakeholders, and user test.
- You’d rather have a conversation than read documentation. You thrive in cross-functional teams. You’ll interact on a daily basis with the tech leads, PMs/POs, and fellow designers.
- You find ways to make complicated, easy. You take pride in eliminating things that aren’t valuable.
- You’re all about feedback loops, actively testing your own designs, using a lean, lightweight approach.
- You do whatever it takes to make a product successful, elegant, and easy to use.
