About the team
Design at Dialpad is at the forefront of creating intuitive, innovative, and beautiful products that transform the way the world works together. We strive to design high-quality end-to-end experiences while maintaining an inclusive and collaborative culture. To us, attitude, and will, are as important as hard design skills.
We are looking for an experienced Sr. UX Engineer who will play a critical role in supporting our Design System (Dialtone) and lead design-focused prototyping efforts within the Product Design organization. This is a highly collaborative and multi-disciplinary role for an experienced design-minded, front-end engineer.
What you’ll do
Design for Delight and Quality
You’ll oversee the front-end design strategy of the Dialtone Design System — style, components, and patterns; and foster a sense of ownership from your team throughout the process. You will bring your experience as a subject matter expert in front-end engineering by building out Design System styles and components. Your front-end engineering experience can be characterized as “front of the front-end.”
- Leading By Design
Though Dialtone serves both designers and engineers, it all starts with the end user’s experience. You’ll have the opportunity to lead and heavily influence how Dialtone and the design system team mature to take on large, high-visibility initiatives, as well as how other designers and engineers contribute.
- Design-focused Prototyping
Build up a growing prototyping practice by identifying design- and code-based skills and technologies to ship high-quality outcomes faster.
- Tooling and documentation
Lead the strategy and creation of resources, tools, and documentation to support Dialtone users — designers and engineers alike.
- Product Management
Manage Design System backlog, roadmap, priorities, scope, and tasking for design system features, documentation, and communication channels. Foster cross-functional relationships and evangelize design system adoption. You will also be providing design leadership and guidance to teams around using shared patterns and identifying opportunities to create new patterns and components within their workstreams.
- Doesn’t Have To Be Complex To Be Useful
Sometimes the most useful and delightful things are simple. We recognize design systems and the products they serve are naturally complex while at the same time trying to provide our users with intuitive and approachable experiences. You’ll be at the forefront unraveling and making sense of complex interactions with a bias for simplicity and elegance.
Expanding Our Footprint
Dialtone has the unique challenge to support not only traditional Web, Android, and iOS interfaces, but desk phones and conference room hardware as well. This role will be integral in helping Dialtone expand its reach as we rethink the physical meeting space experience.
Skills you’ll bring
- 8+ years of related experience, 3+ years of design system experience and/or leading front-end design projects.
- You have designed and documented styles, components, and patterns that enable other designers and developers to build features.
- Proven understanding of how to build, architect, and evangelize design systems.
- Have a strong understanding of interaction design, heuristics, Gestalt principles, usability, and accessibility best practices.
- Strong opinions of, and history in, building inclusive, accessible experiences.
- Solid familiarity with modern front-end bundlers, CLI, package managers and build tools including Webpack, npm and yarn.
- Past experience working with and mentoring junior developers and designers.
