This will include sketching, as well as lo and hi fidelity wireframes and prototypes. Beyond this you’ll become familiar with writing user stories and managing them using Azure dev ops.

  • You are happy to muck in and thrive working as part of a team and will be able to manage multiple, high value, overlapping workstreams. Initiative, proactivity and diplomacy are all essential.

  • You have excellent verbal and written communication. You need to be able to articulate an argument both verbally and in written format. Whether presenting back your thinking internally or explaining your rationale to a client in a report, you’ll need to be concise, clear and persuasive
