  • Actively bridge design and engineering, advising design teams on engineering constraints and advising engineering teams on design intent and capturing the desired feel of an experience. Seek inclusive and divergent feedback from peers and leads to iteratively improve product experience
  • Contribute to broad, shared understanding of experiential and technical factors across all disciplines.
  • Collaborate across disciplines to solve deep experiential and technical problems and drive incredible final experiences
