From detailing the vision to creatively eliciting ideas; from validating requirements to architecting the solution, you will develop - and apply -&nbsp; a deep understanding of client and industry requirements. You will develop an understanding of how the design will be used in development and coordinate Agile activities, identifying, tracking, and resolving technical issues.
