The level of knowledge the Interaction Designer has in relation to the existing development environment. For example, an Interaction Designer should fully understand the " Material Design Language" and all related concepts if they are working on an Android-facing product. We work on web-apps, with " Google Chrome" as our delivery environment. The applicant should have a good working knowledge of web-app design paradigms, and best practices. They don' t need to code, but they should understand how the pieces of their design will be translated into components once it is handed off to the development team.
