Job Description:

Today, our community counts over 90 million travelers in 22 countries, creating a smarter, friendlier and carbon-saving transport network.

* Working closely with our research team to conduct usability tests to validate our team's designs.

* Collaborating with the engineering team, creating design documentation, communicating the importance and value of prototypes, and sharing your work with both new and informed stakeholders.

* Acting as an advocate for our users, both within the product team and the rest of the organization.
