  • Can inspire people across the company with engaging presentations that clearly communicate strategic UX initiatives, paired with sensible execution plans
  • Great verbal and written communicator with the ability to write copy that is human, clear and concise
  • Moves effortlessly between developing and communicating high-level UX strategies and executing the fine details

  • Values over-communication, especially when collaborating with remote coworkers located in different time zones across the globe
  • Excited for the chance to shape the design culture at a growing company and to inspire people with your unique perspective
