Job Description:

Job Title: Senior Designer – Design Systems (Contract Assignment)

A little bit about our team:
Our designers are strong strategic thinkers and conceptual problem solvers who work on internally and externally facing products that are transforming the music business. Our ideal candidate is someone who will oversee and empower these designers to do their best work.

Your role:

We're looking for a rhythm guitar player, errr... a Senior Designer that can help us build out our new Legato Design System.

Working with our small but mighty Design Systems team of UX, QA and Development folks, your primary tasks will be to:
• Identify, define, and design compound components, workflows, and large patterns
• Create supporting content for developers and design by writing use guides
• act as liaison with teams on projects using the system
• Participate in workshops to evangelize the system and gather feedback to inform content and/or features

You should have direct, ''I did this'' experience and examples of design system component and style work, as well as writing examples (sometimes technical) of component use for both designers and developers.

Here you'll get to:

Drive the adoption and benefits of a design system with intelligence, skill, and passion. And... have fun working with a really great and entertaining group of UXperts.

About you
• 3+ years experience as a designer in an Enterprise, SaaS or other B2B environment
• 1+ years in a Design Systems role
• Good communication skills to facilitate working with product owners and external teams
• Ability to speak the language of developer, UX advocates, and product owners
• A clean design sensibility
• A logical mind to break down and organize complex components and patterns into build-able specifications, properties, Figma variants, and non-variant hidden objects
• An inclination towards systems thinking
• Experience with Bootstrap and Material design systems
• Responsive web design, including mobile component needs and variations
• Excellent grammar

We'd love it if you also had:
• Animation and Lottie chops
• Accessibility experience
• Familiarity with GitFlow and technical stacks
• Experience editing in MDX and SCSS formats
