You will concept and craft unique and compelling visual design, collaborate with interaction designers, researchers, animators, engineers, product managers throughout the design and development lifecycle.

This role is based in San Francisco, CA.

The ideal candidate for this role will have a keen eye for elegant, modern design, and UI patterns.
