  • Experience working on consumer products, consumer insights, or product development focused on commerce/e-commerce acquisition, prospects, product display page (PDP), or a shopping cart

  • Seasoned design leadership skills with relentlessly high standards, and deep operational knowledge and expertise in every aspect of UX and product design

  • Strong collaboration, communication, and presentation skills. You are able to tactfully articulate your point-of-view, engage in fact-based discourse, and bring designers and senior product and business leaders, including the Executive team, along on the journey

  • An online portfolio or case studies demonstrating how you provided research strategy for the design of web, mobile, and/or other application platform experiences. This should include shipped and currently in-market products, and showcase the impact of your strategy applied to an end-to-end experience

  • You are resilient, agile, and nimble in the elegant manner in which you pivot. You feel at home in a fast-paced, iterative environment and your robust prioritization skills enable you to work on multiple tracks and pivot from one project to another.
