  • Immerse yourself in one project at a time

  • Daily product decision making and real product delivery with product managers and developers

  • Freedom to try out new design processes; in the spirit of agile, do what works, try new things, stop doing things that don’t work; not a lot of constraints on the “creative” process

  • You are always shipping!

  • Environment that encourages learning and growing as a professional and individual and infrastructure to support and motivate those goals

  • Community oriented design team

  • We really care about design and don’t cut corners – and still we’re shipping all the time!

  • All the designers have different skillsets: you’re not expected to be an expert in everything but having access to someone who probably is means we all get smarter by teaching and learning

  • Continuously innovate Lean Agile design practices and teach others in the company how to do what we do
