  • Turn ideas into visual journeys, encouraging and ensuring inclusive, user-centric, world-class UX design
  • Work with UI designers to create and develop comprehensive wireframes, mockups, and prototypes for mobile and web user interfaces
  • Collaborate with product team and other designers to create the best possible features, layout and design
  • Define design rules and ensure they are applied
  • Conduct testing, interpret feedback and incorporate into future iterations of the solution
  • Review work done by other members of the design team, and give proper feedback to make sure they are ready to be handed over to development teams
  • Educate and coach teams on industry best practices and emerging lessons related to enterprise products
  • Inspire and lead junior designers, ensuring their growth and enabling them to be better problem solvers
  • Mentor other designers to help them grow, and to ensure our design and development efforts and ethos remain aligned
