- Experience wire-framing and designing in Sketch with an ability to communicate ideas visually.
- An ability to problem-solve, anticipate challenges, and propose better ways of building products.
- Experience translating designs to product requirements and working with the development team in an agile environment to successfully implement the designs (familiarity with project management software like JIRA a plus).
- Strong user experience intuitions, including an ability to discern great UX and empathize with users.
- Excellent communication skills and comfortable taking the lead with clients, stakeholders, and remote teams.
- A history of taking initiative, self-management, and solving problems without explicit direction.
- A true team-player attitude and a willingness to roll up your sleeves to achieve the best results.

- Lead new feature initiatives
- Partner with engineering and design teams to deliver excellent products on tight timelines
- Work with QA and development teams to ensure designs implemented according to your vision, and rigorously tested

- Flexible working hours. The position can be remote, and (within reason) can fit around your schedule

- The ability to directly influence the success of projects and lead the direction of product
- Occasional business trips (e.g., open to occasional meetings in New York / Design, Product or Marketing conferences)
