Interaction design. You geek out on coming up with the perfect affordances, transitions, latest web and mobile patterns but always use accessibility guidelines and usability findings to inform your design decisions. You breakdown complex features into reusable components that ultimately help users find what they are looking for and get the job done.
Visual design. You have impeccable taste and pixel perfect standards across various platforms (iOS, Android and Web). You have a deep understanding of grids, colors, layout, imagery, iconography and typography.
Process. You think in terms of design systems. As the system evolves, you’ll proactively collaborate with front-end engineers and help designers make rational design choices based on new and existing components that you make. You’ll also be responsible for maintaining and documenting how they behave to make sure teams stay consistent and have what they need to design their feature set.
Communication. As one of the key owners for the design system, you regularly share updates to designers when new components are available as well as educate the wider organization on how it works and the impact it brings to the organization. You make sure that other designers get the most out of the system.
