  • Partnering with cross-functional stakeholders across product, engineering, and operations teams to design creative solutions that meet rapidly evolving business requirements

  • Experience designing digital products end-to-end (from brief to launch), using learnings to iterate and improve upon on previous assumptions for each subsequent release
  • Experience creating design systems from the ground up that are scalable and tokenized
  • Experience working directly with engineering and product teams to factor engineering complexity into design
  • A portfolio of previous work that showcases excellence in interaction design, visual design, and problem solving
  • A self-starter and team player who is comfortable with ambiguity and open to feedback
  • Scrappiness and ability to think like an owner to tackle issues
  • Customer obsessed and clear understanding of how every technical project impacts Vivrelle members as well as downstream internal operations
