Your interaction design skills are second to none, and you have a knack for making complex information clear for stakeholders, project managers, developers, and UI designers.

  • Conduct research and competitive analysis
  • Create user flows/maps, use cases, wireframes, concepts, interactive prototypes, and presentations to convey your ideas
  • Collaborate with other UX and UI Designers on design concepts, prototypes, mockups, and final UX/UI requirements
  • Assist and lead with user-testing decisions from strategy to reporting while working with a test moderator
  • Participate in discovery meetings, release planning, grooming, stand-ups, validation testing, launch, and post-release support as needed
