Job Description

Who We Are:

Twitter is committed to serving the public conversation by helping users stay informed, inform others and discuss what matters. Twitter’s design systems team is made up of designers, creative specialists and design engineers working together to unify and evolve Twitter's design language. We collaborate closely with product designers and cross-functional partners across the organization to help great experiences scale across web and mobile platforms. 

Who You Are:

You are a strong systems thinker and visual designer with hands-on experience contributing to design systems libraries. You know a design system is more than documentation, it’s the way we work together. You naturally cross borders and break down silos between disciplines, empowering designers and engineers to work quickly with high standards for quality and consistency. You have a strong sense of mobile design and what it takes to implement your designs from a global perspective and consider this in your work. 

What You’ll Do:

As part of this team you’ll be responsible for creating the foundational patterns, UI components, tools, and documentation that empowers Twitter’s strategic design vision. You will collaborate with designers, creatives and engineers across all of our product surfaces. You will especially be working closely with engineering teams to ensure our mobile and web experiences are implemented to the highest quality to achieve this strategic design vision.

Qualifications

Requirements:

  • 6+ years experience as a product designer working directly with design systems.

  • Strong communication, collaboration and creative problem-solving skills.

  • Knowledge of technical constraints and guidelines as they apply to designing for digital platforms, including web, iOS and Android. Awareness of inclusive design principles and best practices.

  • Understanding of internationalization and designing for global markets including languages and locations with lower performing devices.

  • Advanced knowledge of Figma’s design tool. Working knowledge of other contemporary design and prototyping tools, such as Framer or Principle. 

  • Experience contributing to mature design systems including component design, documentation, and education.

  • Advanced knowledge of iOS and Android Human Interface Guidelines.

  • Comfortable working with front end engineering teams for web and mobile user interfaces, including participating in code reviews. It’s a big plus if you have had some hands-on experience and have contributed to code repositories for web or native apps.
