Contribute to our design system with new designs that improve its brand alignment, visual quality and efficiency.
Build strong relationships with your cross-functional partners and leaders inside and outside the product department.

About you, these are the skills and experience we’re looking for:
5+ years of experience shipping great product design in cross-functional teams.
Excellent visual and interaction design craft.
Experience contributing to the definition and execution of user research initiatives and effectively analysing the results to inform product and design decisions.

Seek to understand people’s context, needs, motivations and behaviours and how they align with our business objectives in order to create relevant solutions.
Ability to leverage collaboration. You understand your cross-functional partners and know how to reach stronger outcomes through collaboration.
Experience designing for complex B2B systems
Creative problem-solving. You master design patterns and industry standards but know when to break the status quo and solve unique problems with divergent creative thinking.
Love thinking big and, at the same time, can accurately scope your work into progressive value increments.
Strong storytelling, presentation and communication skills to influence decision-makers.
Experience defining product strategy in collaboration with other functions.
Experience using and contributing to a robust design system.
Experience operationalising product design and cross-functional processes.
Strong content design skills and experience delivering impact through content.
Strong high-fidelity prototyping skills.
