  • 9+ years of professional experience in Product Design. This role can be fitted to your level of seniority.
  • Proven track record of successful project deliveries

  • A curious and creative mindset, attention to details and a hands-on attitude
  • Passion to drive and develop the practices for design quality and competence growth
