About Workato:

Workato is the only integration and automation platform that is as simple as it is powerful — and because it’s built to power the largest enterprises, it is quite powerful. 

Simultaneously, it’s a low-code/no-code platform. This empowers any user (dev/non-dev) to painlessly automate workflows across any apps and databases.

We’re proud to be named a leader by both Forrester and Gartner and trusted by 7,000+ of the world's top brands such as BoxGrabSlack, and more. But what is most exciting is that this is only the beginning. 

 

About the role:

Our design team is a tight-knit, collaborative team of product designers, UX researchers and visual designers guided by a highly iterative design process. We work fast, bias towards action, and aren’t afraid to fail. We’re supported by a management team that believes that design is a core pillar in our path to bring automation to everyone, and product and engineering teams that will go above and beyond to focus on what is best for the user. 

We’re looking for a UX Designer who lives and breathes design systems. As the first hire dedicated to design systems, you’ll have the opportunity to shape the way we organize, maintain and use our design libraries. You’ll work with the rest of the design team to create a unified visual and interaction design language across the product.

 

Responsibilities:

  • Bringing your design system expertise to strategize how to take our design system to the next level.

  • Taking the lead on maintaining the foundations of our design system.

  • Establishing best practices for organizing and maintaining our Figma libraries.

  • Collaborating with product designers and UI developers to design and implement robust, flexible components, patterns and guidelines.

  • Creating and maintaining documentation on all aspects of our design system.

  • Being the expert on all things design systems, and guiding product designers and UI developers on components and patterns.

 

What we are looking for:

  • 3-7 years of UX design experience, preferably in designing complex products. Experience working on design systems as part of a larger design team.

  • A strong portfolio of your past work that details your challenges, ideas, and impact. 

  • Proven experience working with front-end developers to bring your vision to reality.

  • Strong technical understanding of how components are built.

  • Proficiency in web development languages (HTML, CSS, JS) are not required, but are a strong plus.

  • Solid understanding of interaction design and visual design principles. This role requires an eye for creating strong UI designs. Motion design experience is a strong plus.

  • Solid awareness of accessibility standards and how to incorporate them into design systems at a foundational level.

  • A degree in Human-computer interaction is a huge plus.

  • Excellent organizational and communication skills.

But, we also believe in balancing productivity with self-care. That’s why we offer all of our employees a vibrant and dynamic work environment along with a multitude of benefits they can enjoy inside and outside of their work lives.
