  • Functionality obsessed: You thoroughly review and approve the interaction between visual, motion, and action design.
  • End-to-end ownership: You appreciate and revel in opportunities to see projects large and small through to completion.
  • Collaboration is key: You deeply enjoy aligning internal and external stakeholders to achieve design-first results.
  • Growth mindset: You are excited to dive into an early stage team and believe in validated learning. You understand the tradeoffs of limited startup resources and time to go-to-market.
