  • Work closely with Experience Design leadership to proactively and professionally raise and mitigate concerns with team members and/or projects within your pod.
  • Act as the day-to-day designer for 2-4 active projects; exhibiting an expert level ownership of the project from research to strategy to design production to client presentation.
  • Ensure superior quality deliverables by collaboratively engaging cross-discipline leadership, and enforcing rigorous design QA processes and standards to provide end to end delivery and client satisfaction.
  • Facilitate discovery engagements (onsite and remotely) that expertly define cross-discipline project requirements and that demonstrate an expert understanding of underlying client business goals and objectives. Consistently identify strategic opportunities to engage with the 10up Account Management Team and collaborate towards building strong, long-term client relationships.
