  • You are proficient with modern design, prototyping, remote collaboration tools (e.g., Figma and Miro), and come with interactive prototyping expertise.
  • You have systematic design thinking and expertise in creating modular component libraries and design systems.
  • You have experience with large-scale content publishing or relevant adjacent expertise around designing for digital-first, editorial content.
