    • Work within and build upon our existing design system.
    • Provide, and invite, constructive feedback to and from other designers to continuously elevate the quality of our products.

    • Excellent time-management skills, and the ability to execute on multiple projects with overlapping timelines.
    • An eagerness to collaborate and build relationships with other teams in the company, including Engineering, Product Management, Sales, and Operations.
