Solution-oriented - you have a positive approach to design. 'Solutions not problems.'

Passionate - you are someone who loves designing beautiful, usable products

A great communicator - you're able to take people along your design journey with you

Highly collaborative - you love working with multiple teams or people

A strategic thinker - everyone at Cuckoo contributes to the product roadmap. The decisions you make and the ideas you generate will shape the future of Cuckoo for years to come

Able to take the lead - you can lead projects from ideation through to delivery

Someone who cares - you want to get things right. You fight for pixel perfection

User-centric - you believe user-centricity and high-quality design should be at the core of every design decision and you advocate for this

A creative and analytics blend - you're equally happy working on UI design systems as you are conducting research or running a workshop

Humour and humility - we think it's important that everyone in the team shares these two character traits

In terms of specifics, we'd like you to have:

1. Broad range of skills covering the design process end to end: interaction design, visual design and prototyping

2. Strong visual design skills

3. Solid experience of the UX design process

4. A strong portfolio demonstrating your critical thinking, process and craft

5. Excellent knowledge of Figma/Sketch and Adobe Creative Cloud
