You’ll develop your ideas with sketches, prototypes, wireframes and story boards, and confidently communicate your vision to senior executives and stakeholders to continually pursue customer satisfaction, championing best practices.  You will work as part of a cross-functional team of Scrum/Agile enthusiasts with a strong DevOps culture, inventing and iterating on end-to-end product experiences with usability studies and user testing.
