The role focuses on building UI components that are dev ready and adhere to the technical and style guidance of the organisations established design system.

The role requires a love for UI and an eye for detail, as the role is centred around maintaining, creating, and organising new components into our design libraries. As design system UI designer, you’d need to have a good understanding on how components work in the development environment and have good technical knowledge to bring your Figma design to life when handing over to the development team.

As a UI/Interaction designer we would expect an excellent / export knowledge in Figma. With a strong knowledge and experience of building bespoke UI components and using custom design libraries. A must for the role is to have demonstratable examples of committing and developing a design system first hand.

We’re want this role to take ownership of design enhancements, including good knowledge of both visual and interaction design.

We are also looking to harness the power of tokenisation, giving us the ability to maximise experiences through a limited set of well tested, high quality UI components.

Requirements:

  • Experience in organising and maintaining components, through the use of documentation.

  • Ability to adhere to brand guidelines.

  • An awareness of HTML, CSS and front end practices.
