What you’ll be doing...
As a member of Skyward’s design team you will be embedded with the product and engineering teams and contribute throughout the entire product development life cycle. You’ll be designing web and mobile experiences for current and new products. You are responsible for creating whatever it takes to get the job done – from whiteboard doodles, diagrams, wireframes and high fidelity comps, to production-ready assets.
