Full Time Minnesota Product Designer Job
You’re a talented designer who knows the web inside and out. You know what works, what doesn’t work and what’s worth trying. You know how to take complex data and distill it down to a simple, easy-to-use interface. Critical discussion about design, whether it's your work or that of your colleagues, is always fun to you because you embrace the philosophy that ideas improve when tested

- Collaborate with other designers as needed, and work independently to see a project through to completion.
