  • Show attention to details on all levels -- Our work doesn't begin or end with pixels. We are constantly brainstorming new ideas and concepts while optimizing our current experiences
  • Stay on brand, until you can’t -- We know how to work within a design system while recognizing opportunities to draw outside the lines and improve our design language
  • Be a team player -- We don’t design in a bubble and everyone has a voice in our projects. In order to produce the best possible experience for our users all of our teams work together and provide feedback to each other. We collaborate with engineering, product and data analytics teams to build the best user experience

  • An understanding of trends in product design -- including interaction patterns for web and mobile

  • A collaborative mentality -- desire to help and mentor other designers
  • Adaptability and flexibility -- comfortable working in an ever-changing, fast-paced and cross time-zone environment
