Requirements:  

  • At least 3 years of work experience in software design (not graphic/print design)

  • Make strategic, data-driven design and user-experience decisions related to core, and new, functions and features. 
  • Present and defend your design decisions. All your design decisions should be based on the overall design roadmap and style guide which you will help create, as well as your own design taste and fundamental design principles (i.e. human psychology/factors, visual weight, color theory, etc.) 
  • Design graphic user interface elements, like menus, tabs and widgets 
  • Develop UI mockups and prototypes that clearly illustrate how sites function and looks 
  • Create original graphic designs (e.g. illustrations, images, sketches and tables)
