You will be a part of the full end-to-end design process and will work collaboratively with product, UX, engineers, and marketing. You will work closest with the UX and product teams, where you will gain exposure to (and at times, participate in gathering) all the information you need to design with purpose: roadmap planning, concept testing, persona development, design reviews for engineers, and more.

Your main deliverables will be an updated and scalable design system, pixel-perfect mocks, and interactive prototypes that showcase the intended behavior and interactions in the UX.

  • Collaborate closely with UX and product to maintain a high standard of user-focused design
  • Create digital designs for marketing, advertising, and PR
  • Influence maturation of the ABRA design team

  • Willingness to go beyond the job description to support the team (and the company's) success
  • Bonus: experience creating interactive prototypes and motion design
