* Work hand-in hand with developers throughout design and development processes.
* Collaborate with developers to groom features, create user stories, and prepare components for release.
* Propose new approaches, workflows, and tools to the design system team to improve efficiency.
* Conduct design reviews and confidently communicate decision-making rationale to team members and stakeholders at all levels of the organization.
* Onboard designers and developers on the usage of the design system through 1-on-1 training and group presentations.
* Coach internal contributors on how best to identify and propose new styles and components.

* Advanced skills in typography, iconography, color theory, and grid systems, including 3+ years of experience in Sketch and Sketch libraries.
* Work portfolio that demonstrates a synthesis of multiple inputs (user, business, technical) and creative problem solving
* Solid grasp of design system approaches (purpose, ingredients, documentation) as well as human interface and style guidelines.
* Knowledge and appreciation for front-end coding practices, from how designs are dissected to how coding decisions are made.
* Real-world experience with accessibility and inclusive design.
* Excellent interpersonal and communication (verbal and written) skills.

Preferred Qualifications
* Strong portfolio when it comes to native mobile design.
* Experience producing designs for large-scale, enterprise products in an agile environment.
