  •  Technical Problem-Solving: Solving complex technical challenges that arise during the development of prototypes. This requires a deep understanding of the technology stack and the ability to think creatively to find solutions.
  • User Testing and Feedback Gathering: In partnership with the UX designer and the Product Owner, conducting user testing sessions and gathering feedback to validate assumptions and identify areas for improvement. Understanding user perspectives is crucial for refining prototypes.
  • Innovation and Continuous Learning: Continuously learning and experimenting with new approaches and technologies to drive innovation. Staying ahead of the curve is essential in a fast-paced tech environment. This involves staying up to date with industry trends and emerging technologies.
  •  Collaboration with Cross-functional Teams: Collaborating with product managers, designers, and other developers to ensure that the prototype aligns with user needs and business goals. This involves regular communication and coordination with different teams.
  • Transitioning Prototypes to Production: Working with development teams to transition successful prototypes into production-ready products or features. This may involve redesigning or re-engineering aspects of the prototype for scalability and reliability, and technical documentation.
