NBC News Digital is in the process of breathing new life into its flagship brands - NBC News, TODAY and MSNBC. The mission of the design team is to translate the strategic vision of these core brands into delightful and engaging user experiences across web, mobile, video and emerging spaces.

As a product designer for this team you bring a strong understanding of UX principles for content publishing on digital, a deep aesthetic sensibility, and a perpetual curiosity for new and emerging approaches to design.

On the other, you will be collaborating closely on a progressive agile product team with engineers and other designers who are directly responsible for shipping product.

This means that you will be comfortable with translating your sketch wireframes and prototypes to actual markup, CSS/SASS and potentially some javascript. You are comfortable with managing your code in github and learning best practices from your peers across design and engineering.
