    +1 to looking at product designers for this. I am a product designer and consider myself an expert in HTML & Sass. That said, I would never call myself a UI Engineer. In my experience, this assumes working JS knowledge, which I have none.

    I'm also on the other side of things here, where it's rare to find a postion where you can actually use your code skillz in a 'design' position. Front end code tends to be looked down upon by backend devs, and deemphasized when it comes to feature importance and bug fixing.
