  • Mentor and guide team members, helping them develop and grow.
  • Contribute to and positively shape the design team’s culture through collaboration, feedback, and process iteration.


  • 6+ years of experience designing digital products and systems.

  • You’re a great partner to other designers and your cross-functional teammates.
  • A growth-mindset.
  • You’re open and receptive to feedback, and can adapt quickly in a fast-paced environment.
  • A sense of humor. We spend a lot of time together—sharing gifs and laughing over lunch keeps us energized and inspired throughout the day.
