Who you are

You thrive on working well with others. You make the people around you better. You love to collaborate with designers, user researchers, engineers, product managers, executives, and inspire them to do their best. You are a font of positivity and people get energy from their encounters with you.

You love every step of the product journey. From talking to customers and getting a nuanced understanding of their challenges, to surveying the business context and competitive landscape of our efforts, to partnering closely with designers, user researchers, and engineers to come up with elegant solutions and approaches that will resonate with customers and make them feel heard and understood.

You get excited diving into the details. Whether it s making sure that the product works across the globe, or is not just accessible but inclusive, or whether it s worrying about error conditions, or understanding a set of APIs well enough to understand what s possible, you pride yourself on not just working through the details, but on understanding just how deep you need to go in order to craft a solution that works in the real world.

You get stuff done. You feel great when you re delivering something substantive and meaningful to actual customers.

You kill your darlings. As excited as you are about the work you ve been a part of, you re even more excited to move on to a different direction, if it s not resonating with customers, partners, or developers.

You don t already know everything and you love to learn. You re inspired by helping users solve their problems. You love finding out you re wrong. You consume large amounts of quantitative and qualitative data to constantly refine your assumptions.

And finally, you want to be part of creating dramatic and impactful change at a company that is committed to becoming a light unto others when it comes to user experience.
