You’ll work with the Design System lead, product owners and developers to uphold, mold, improve and evolve our Design System principles and resources. The rise of agile development demands a much tighter integration between design and technology while working on structures, resources, and systems to deliver design at scale therefore you’ll get the chance to work closely with our Design Ops manager and FigmaOps specialist to achieve this. You will be actively working together with our Mobile and Web UI teams who implement the design system into reusable component libraries. 

At Backbase our R&D Product teams are at the centre of a global transformation, creating Journeys that impact the banking experiences for more than 70 million people daily. As a white-label software company, giving our customers the ability to style our product consistently and efficiently across all platforms is key to helping them toward building banking experiences their customers love - and the Backbase Design System makes this possible.

We have a great, creative culture in the Design team with over 70 UI/UX Designers and 10 Researchers working across the organisation. We are looking for someone who will be a great addition to this team, bringing creativity, passion, and experience.
