Role : Web Designer
The candidate should understand these design concepts and be able design pages and flows following these concepts.
The candidate should not be a marketing designer. Creation of banners and adds and splash screens is not a positive and could be considered a negative if it is over represented.
The candidate will not be required to interview and research the UX. Product manager, he will handle that aspect and communicate what is required to this resource.
The resource needs only have the ability to understand and incorporate the UX elements.
etc. is unnecessary and does not add value for this role. Developers often use the term Design in an ambiguous fashion. A good pre-

This doesn’t mean someone historically a developer is disqualified, but they do need to be able to show they have a solid grasp and examples of it for the Design side.
