You should have experience with:

  • Design/development disciplines (data visualization, motion graphics and interactive experiences, explorations in 3D, creative coding).
  • Computer graphics (Metal/OpenGL/WebGL), 3D Graphics libraries (e.g. Three.js, BabylonJS, A-Frame, or Regl) and data visualization libraries (e.g. D3).

  • Figma, motion graphics and 3D software (After Effects, Maya, Blender).
  • Building analytics products such as dashboards, metrics, and workflows that power the domain of business intelligence shown in a portfolio of real-world projects.
  • Crafting and communicating thoughtful user experiences.
