  • Strong experience in 2D design software (Illustrator, Photoshop, Sketch, ....)
  • Good artistic skills (proportion, composition, color).

  • A passion for design and continual improvement
  • Openness to receive feedback and have your opinions be challenged
  • Exceptional written and oral communication skills — you can tell compelling stories about your designs and present your work confidently to any audience (engineers, PMs, executives, other designers, etc.)
  • Ability to prioritize projects, communicate progress, and deliver on time
  • Ability to thrive in an unstructured, fast-moving and constantly evolving high growth environment
