Are you a design leader with a passion for crafting high quality experiences? We are looking for a leader to guide the design team of our “Point A” new product initiatives.

    • You have a strong passion for (and possibly experience in) building sophisticated enterprise-level software
    • You're able to demonstrate an history of shipping simple, beautiful software experiences
    • You’ll have an extensive understanding of UX processes, user research, frameworks and toolkits
