  • Encourage an even more empathetic organization alongside UX Researcher by discussing research findings and their application to our experiences with audiences across the organization to socialize a common understanding of our customers through written and oral presentations
  • Champion the user throughout the design process by participating in, owning the design of, and delivering UX artifacts (including but not limited to: user story mapping, user flows, user stories, wireframes, and prototypes) required to make insight-driven design decisions
  • Incorporate interaction design, information design, and user behavior knowledge into design artifacts
  • Bring simplicity and usability to complicated interactions and flows
  • Contribute to the organization, documentation, and maintenance of a design system and design principles repository
