  • Establishing and socializing specifications and standards; training designers and engineers on how to use the system in their work

Required Qualifications

  • Capable of rapid iteration and experimentation
  • Understanding of basic front-end languages, including CSS, HTML and javaScript
  • Exceptional communication skills, and the ability to clearly explain design decisions to anyone in the company
  • Comfortable with critique and co-authorship

Portfolio Requirements

  • Examples of your design systems work, including usage documentation (an entire library to review would be tops)
  • Case study on how and why you came up with the design systems and components you created
  • A showcase of world-class designs that have been shipped to production using the system you established
