  • The willingness to challenge the status quo and processes that are “quite good already”, by always striving for even better solutions.
  • Commitment and passion to what you do. You are the one that needs to convince your colleagues to follow your ideas.
  • UX design skills, wireframing and mock-up design experience.**

What we’d love you to have:
