This role is highly collaborative, and you’ll work with multiple teams on a variety of different products and domains to continually improve and adjust the design system over time. Additional responsibilities include:

  • Implement component designs provided by the Lead Designer using industry standards and framework agnostic technologies (web components)
  • Work with the Design System Lead and Lead Designer to ensure the design system maintains technical integrity as new components and features are introduced
  • Regularly audit and improve the EDS documentation (good/bad examples, etc.) as we move toward a more “self-service” model
  • Establish, maintain and evolve code patterns that scale and can be safely copied and reused by others
  • Provide training, support and education to engineering teams including integration with frameworks such as Angular and React
  • Track bug fixes, feature requests and community contributions and manage development work with an agile process
  • Manage the design system’s release pipeline and version control
  • Maintain the design system’s websites and online systems

  • Proficiency with CSS and skilled at recreating static designs efficiently in code
  • Comfortable with node.js based build environments and tools
  • Works effectively in teams of differing and opposing perspectives, doesn’t get emotional over decisions and can defend position with clarity and poise

  • Enjoys solving difficult and sophisticated design problems in an enterprise environment
  • Patient and caring enough to explain and simplify challenging technical concepts for audiences with little to no knowledge of coding
