The role requires the ability to develop ideas quickly in response to business needs, understand engineering tradeoffs when developing new digital experiences, and capability to leverage data when weighing design decisions. While you will manage a team of highly talented designers, you will also need experience managing agency resources we leverage during times of peak/burst capacity.
