  • can articulate and explain your designs well to others
  • are always driven by the end-users, not your own ego
  • love simple, clear and easy to use products and interfaces
  • manage your own time, and work well both independently and as part of a team

It would be also great if you:

  • love the world of productivity, goal-setting and personal improvement
  • love design thinking and user-centered design process
  • have created UI/UX for actual functional products used by people, not just static web pages
  • have experience with libraries like jQuery and UI frameworks like Bootstrap, Foundation etc

  • have used JS frameworks like Angular, Backbone, Ember, React, Vue.js etc
  • want to learn and start using any of the above-mentioned tools
  • know tools, apps, methods and processes that make design teams efficient (like Agile, LeanUX, Google Sprint etc), and want to implement them
  • have been part of or have founded a startup (doesn't matter if it was a "learning experience") or participated in a weekend hackathon like Garage48
  • have created some hobby projects or websites
  • know what we mean by segmented button group overflow action menu dropdown
  • can explain why the color green is better than red, and why stacked bar charts are good for comparing between each element in the categories, and comparing elements across categories
  • have installed more than 100 apps on your phone or signed up to more than 50 online services — knowing the popular user flows and trends, notice cool things and just like to keep yourself up to date of what's out there and possible
  • die a little inside when you see bad design and user experience, and have 5 ways to improve anything
