UX Designing Lead

Cognizant Digital Works | Our team:

Working globally with major players across industries including health care, entertainment, retail, financial services, and communications, we offer an exciting opportunity to shape how the world will be over the next decade.

Build build build - We believe that people make better things together. We team up to do much more prototyping than powerpointing.
