Job Description:

Our client, a worldwide online transportation network technology company, is changing the way the world thinks about transportation. They are building technology people use everyday. Headquartered in San Francisco, they are seeking a Production Designer for a 3-month assignment with possibility to extend duration and/or convert to full time for successful candidate. In this assignment, you will work on a Product Design Platform team. They are looking for a team-member with significant experience designing systems - someone who is a systems thinker at heart, is equally amazing in interaction design, visual design, and prototyping, and has experience establishing and evolving design patterns at scale. In this role you will be working collaboratively with Product Management, Design, and Engineering teams to execute designs that will inform the global design system by which our various web apps are designed and built on. You are an excellent communicator, comfortable in a fast-paced, growing environment, and passionate about scaling design systems to achieve consistent, high-quality experiences while developing the client's digital brand.  The role requires great execution, bold innovation, passion for quality, and optimism to be inspired by the unknown and never settle, solving problems with creativity while keeping the user in mind and aspiration to take projects to the finish line.

What you'll need:

- To be a champion of consistency, quality, and efficiency. You understand the benefits of recycling design patterns but know when it's time to improve their design for broader use cases, effectiveness or consistency with the system at large.

- To have shipped product. You've weathered release cycles and know what details matter at each stage, how to motivate engineers to get the fit and finish right, how to translate insights from user studies into meaningful action, and what's most likely to go afoul at each stage. You can share several shining examples of real work you've shipped, and what you learned along the way.

Speed Requirements:

- 3+ years of relevant production design/platform design experience.

- Must submit portfolio to be considered.
