About the Role:
The Design System Team works on big frontend problems like accessibility, theming, layouts, and curating the set of foundational base components that all frontend engineers use daily. You would help build the design system in a scalable and consistent way, keeping in mind users, designers, and developers alike. We’re opening up a new stream of work to improve adoption of the design system across core pages and experiences. You’ll get hands-on experience writing high-quality performant code to build the simplest best user experiences as well as promoting and advocating for this work to product teams through documentation on the migration process and engaging presentations. This role will be an exciting opportunity for an experienced engineer who knows how to both communicate well and design good components.
