Who You Are:
Passionate: About user-centered design and the desire to influence your own development and that of your discipline. Youre looking for a company where you have the opportunity to pursue your interests across functions, and where a job title is not considered the final definition of who you are, but the starting point.
Empathic: Solving problems requires a myriad of perspectives, methodologies and processes. Beyond all of that, youre a human and possess a high level of self-awareness, empathy, and interpersonal skills.
Collaborative: As Yvon Chouinard writes in Let My People Go Surfing, Our best efforts are collaborative, and the Patagonia culture rewards the ensemble player while it barely tolerates those who need the limelight.
Inclusive: Deeply experienced in collaborating with others across difference and bringing in new perspectives and underrepresented narratives in the customer experience.
Organized: Put bluntly, you meet deadlines and help others meet them too. You manage details and keep projects on track using checklists, check-in meetings or whatever is needed.

Minimum 3 years of professional digital/UX design experience.
A strong and well-rounded foundation across visual design, customer-centered experience design, interaction design, and the creative process.
