Requirements
  • Ability to be available for meetings and impromptu communication during Quora's “coordination hours" (Mon-Fri: 9am-3pm Pacific Time)
  • 5 years of experience in product design, with at least 2 years focused on design systems design and development (React, Typescript, or equivalent)
  • Portfolio that demonstrates designing and building high-quality design systems components for both consumer and B2B products
  • Strong proficiency in building scalable, reusable React / TypeScript web components that integrate design tokens
  • Working knowledge of native platforms (i.e. Android, iOS) to confidently work with native engineers in translating web components / designing client-specific components
  • Experience collaborating with other product designers, product managers, engineers, and other stakeholders to align roadmaps and implementation details
  • Experience building and maintaining design tokens: UI design, light mode / dark mode, naming / categorization, management, conversion, version control, and distribution
Responsibilities
  • Define a strategy, create a roadmap and productionize PDL into a best-in-class Design System, both in our codebase and in Figma
  • Evolve existing design patterns and refine an ‘in-take process’ for identifying, creating and prioritizing new reusable components based on user and team need
  • Design and propose new PDL components and design tokens in Figma, while also implementing pattern components on web (i.e. React) and working with cross functional partners to implement on native platforms (i.e. iOS, Android)
  • Proactively identify opportunities to review code and design decisions to enforce PDL usage, while socializing upcoming changes to more deeply integrate the PDL in all areas of product development
  • Navigate ambiguity by maintaining clear ‘sources of truth’ for engineers and designers that detail: use expectations, decision rationale and other required documentation (i.e. Token Studio, Figma, etc.)
  • Work autonomously to quickly and pragmatically execute on multiple projects simultaneously
  • Define Design System KPIs to measure health and help optimize for future usage
  • Contribute to the Design team’s growth through mentorship and joining Design Team Guilds to improve the day-to-day environment
