The ideal UX Designer knows the ins and outs of web usability, information architecture, UI design, knows how to learn and understand user needs, has great attention to detail, and is a positive person with a high level of empathy. You should be able to conceptualize and flesh out web interfaces, gather feedback, and collaborate with other team members while balancing user needs with business and technology, and always advocate for the user-centric approach.
Note that we have an amazing team of content creators and editors, illustrators and graphic designers, so what we expect from a UX Designer is rather user-focused insights, solution concepts and wireframe level UI, but anything else you can bring to the table is more than welcome and appreciated.
