    • Participate in design reviews and share your work regularly with the design and company leadership and defend your design decisions, and incorporate feedback into the design cycle.
    • Actively incorporate feedback, technical constraints, and usability findings into design and work closely with customer feedback and internal stakeholders to gather the information.

Requirements
