  • Quality Assurance: Review and validate the implementation of UI designs in the final product, identifying and addressing any discrepancies or issues that may arise during development. Attention to detail and the ability to communicate and advocate for developed pages to match designs are critical.

  • Responsive Design: Ensure that UI designs are responsive and adapt seamlessly to various devices and screen sizes, including desktop, mobile, and tablets.

  • Accessibility: Prioritize accessibility by designing and implementing UI elements that meet WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) standards, ensuring the application is usable by individuals with disabilities.
