  • Maintain a current knowledge of design trends, industry trends, market conditions, tools, and techniques.
  • Present product design ideas to cross-functional teams and senior leadership.

  • Ability to give and receive feedback.
  • Ability to explain the reasoning behind your opinions.
  • Ability to guide design from concept through implementation.

  • Ability to engage, collaborate with, and influence cross-functional teams.
  • Proven passion for design and determination to challenge the status quo.
