We believe that great ecommerce design starts with understanding our customers. We always strive to prototype and test new features/experiences and put a user-centric emphasis on the entire design process:
We define the problem and design strategy with our customers in mind (using qualitative and quantitative data)
We research, prototype and test solutions
We share designs/solutions for feedback early and often
We execute winning designs
We close the loop with analysis and iterate on the process again if need be
As part of this team, you will be responsible for using and improving this process as the business grows.
