  • Developing process flows, wireframes, and mockups to effectively conceptualize and communicate high-level design strategies and detailed interaction behaviors
  • Working with our Usability and Data Mining teams to assess and optimize the performance of new and existing features and page frameworks
  • Responsibly and effectively advocating for customers in a corporate climate; imparting day-to-day strategic design leadership that fosters a shared understanding of the customer-centric intersection between design, content, business and marketing values
