  • Experience with systems thinking and design systems a plus 

  • Designers who thrive in a collaborative team, bringing excellent communication and interpersonal skills 

  • Experience working in an agile team using story mapping, task flows, needs analysis and prioritisation  based on user insights.  

  • A flexible, commercial, and practical approach to design, all the while remaining the advocate for the end user
