* The UX team is 15 people strong and growing. In the last year alone they welcomed 6 members. There are nearly 20 areas within the product with complex interfaces that need their attention. They work autonomously on each of those areas and come together to inspire and critique. They work directly with developers, data scientists, product owners and writers.
What is their Design System?
Our Design System is used on all the facing interfaces of the product (B2B). There are dozens of them and the Design System bring them all together to create one coherent product that's a pleasure to use daily.
What it's like to work with them:

* Champion and advocate the best design for our Design System users

* Step up and represent design, sharing what we’re capable of and the impact we brought
* Work autonomously, but need the team’s engagement for the Design System to succeed

Who is the right person to join the team?
* They look for a seasoned designer who has led design initiative before. Your portfolio should demonstrate at least 3 projects where you contributed to creating outstanding design
* Your UI skills are impressive and simply beautiful
* Your experience should span from research to design (sketches and pixel-perfect)
* Because each team member works autonomously, we expect you to be able to drive UX activities with the development team; initiate and self-motivate your day to day activities
* Your passion for work and life is contagious
* Work is not only about graphics and colours; we need innovative ideas
* Keen to work with other disciplines and apply empathy to them too, not just the end user
* In one line: we need a problem solver.
What can you expect from them?
* A real opportunity to grow and excel. You may want to sharpen a practice or work on your soft skills. Your personal development is important to us as much as it is to you
* Autonomy isn’t just a word on paper. Every team member is encouraged to own their work and take pride in it. But when you need a hand, the team is always there
