    • Understand how to implement front-end technologies (HTML, CSS, JavaScript) to create seamless and engaging user interfaces and solve specific UI challenges
    • Optimize applications for maximum speed and scalability while ensuring cross-browser and cross-device compatibility and accessibility standards (WCAG AA)
    • Collaborate closely with front-end developers to create proof-of-concept demos of interactions and experiences you want to accomplish through the UI

    • Provide guidance and mentorship to junior UX/UI team members, sharing insights and fostering professional growth
