What you'll do:

  • Influence the vision of developing our design system by understanding user behavior and development needs, defining complex patterns, building modular components, creating documentation, usage guidelines, and proof of concepts.
  • Actively contribute to the design system by taking new design initiatives from ideas to implementation, and creating world-class user experiences. 
  • Work closely with the UX team to create a coherent, scalable, and well-structured design language for the entire organization.
  • Serve as a subject matter expert to designers, engineers, and product managers for all things related to the design system.
  • Understand the design needs of a large-scale software project.
 

What you’ll need:

  • You are a generalist with: (1) vast experience in both building large-scale end-to-end solutions from scratch, and evolving complex systems at scale, (2) a deep understanding of architectural patterns.
  • Proficiency and extensive experience in building complex applications using React, Typescript, HTML, and CSS. On top of that, you stay up to date with browser engines, performance tweaks, and the principles behind accessible design.
  • Experience with creating and maintaining Design Systems. 
  • Good understanding of design fundamentals and principles and a good eye for details.
  • You are serious about code quality, thus you eagerly use popular libraries such as Cypress, JEST, etc.
  • Ability to perform deep code reviews. Beyond checking the correctness and cleanness of code, you’re able to connect the dots and focus on the bigger picture.
  • A curious mind and fast learning skills. You have an appetite for continuous learning and you know when and how to dig deeper.
  • Ability to make time-based decisions. You have a bias for action and believe in technical pragmatism.
  • Soft skills. Over-communication comes naturally to you. You are a good listener. You know how to advocate, persuade and negotiate with the team. You enjoy writing things down to synthesize information.
  • Ability to solve complex problems: you know how to perform root cause analysis, suggest improvements, and solutions.
  • Experience with technical mentoring of more junior software engineers.
