    • Inspired by Blue Bottle’s aesthetic while thoughtfully finding ways to push its boundaries
    • Deeply empathetic, always taking the viewpoint of our customers and how to delight them
    • A clear and effective communicator in both conversation and written word
    • A collaborator who seeks out values, builds upon feedback and different perspectives
    • Serious about your work but don’t take yourself too seriously, quick to laugh and laud others
    • Energized by fast-changing environments and able to juggle multiple priorities with ease

You have:

    • 5+ years experience in digital product-related design working with product managers, software engineers, and other designers to bring concepts to high-fidelity production
    • Proficiency in Adobe Creative suite, Sketch, Invision, Trello & Pivotal Tracker, old fashioned white board
    • Experience using HTML/CSS/Javascript to bring web application interfaces to life a plus
    • Huge bonus points for prior experience with user experience/interaction design
    • Last but not least, a deep love for great coffee, food, and exceptional customer experiences​
