• Systematically convert design principles into an evolved visual language, and a refined suite of repeatable components, which can be quickly and easily adopted by the wider organization
• Apply a broad range of techniques, including sketching, prototyping, interaction modeling, journey mapping, and user testing to explore, convey, and validate opportunities and solutions
• Relentlessly evangelize best practices and proven paradigms with in the interactive space, and define usage guidelines accordingly
• Illustrate how uniform motion and data visualization enhances user experiences and empowers and delights end-users
• Create an action plan for achieving system-wide ADA and WCAG compliance
• Work within the scaled agile framework to manage the input and output of the Design System, build out quarterly roadmaps, and balance team capacity with growing product needs

 

You have:

• 10+ years of experience building and implementing sustainable digital products that users love – with at least 4+ years leading large scale Design System implementation
• An online portfolio that demonstrates your work and process in building out Design Systems
• A mastery of UX and UI design fundamentals across digital platforms and a deep understanding of the importance of applying qualitative and quantitative methodologies to inform and validate decisions
• Acute understanding that everything counts, including operational rigor, relationship management, workflow excellence, and attention to detail
• Experience connecting teams that come from both creative and technical backgrounds
• Experience working in a scaled agile/scrum process
