  • In-depth knowledge of Sketch and Adobe Creative Suite.
  • Ability to produce wireframes, interactive prototypes as well as visual design concepts using tools such as Invision, Axure RP or Balsamiq.
  • Experience working with developers and business analysts to provide detail about your design concepts in an agile/sprint environment.
  • Familiarity with HTML, CSS, JavaScript/JQuery.
