As a member of the product team, you will be working in Scrum/Agile teams alongside Product Owners, Engineering and Quality Assurance. 
Your expertise will dovetail with the skillset of the UX/UI designer, who will bring your wireframes to life through polished UI designs, whilst helping you out in the earlier stages of the process when required.

Comfortable working as part of an Agile, Kanban or Scrum process. 
Solid experience of working on iOS and Android mobile apps, web and software projects.
Experience of devising, implementing and facilitating UX research activities through a user-centred design process.
Proven track-record of using an array of user research methods, including surveys, interviews, workshops and data analysis, and a deep understanding about when each method is appropriate.
