  • A motivated self-starter that can operate effectively in a fast moving environment.
  • An obsession with understanding user problems and a focus on the details so that you can conceptualise new approaches and solutions
  • A pragmatic approach with the ability to listen to and learn with your team members both as individuals and in an agile development process
  • Proven expertise of usability and user experience principles, and experience using a wide range of research methods to get the best insights from user research and testing
  • The confidence and verbal/writing skills that allow you to communicate your ideas and vision, inspire the teams, and defend design decisions

  • Demonstrable strategic thinking that can deliver user-centric results in a mobile product environment
  • Exceptional communication skills are essential, coupled with a first class ability to present and summarise information to diverse audiences.
