About the Role

Most of our designs are based on our design system Waffles (https://waffles.datacamp.com/). All tokens and components are also available in Figma component libraries. We are looking for reinforcement to build up and further develop this component library. 

As part of our design community, you'll be helping other designers, extract common patterns in their designs so that they can be implemented into our design system and documenting design decisions.
You will also regularly help the UX designers and engineers with designing or improving features of our apps.


  • Design and document interaction patterns throughout our components, documentation, and prototypes.
  • Maintain robust and usable Figma components libraries, from foundational elements to more complex components.
  • Work closely with our frontend engineers to ensure the components are implemented effectively.
  • Provide regular design feedback to other designers and engineers regarding accessibility and using effective UX patterns.
  • Collaborate with designers, engineers, PM, marketing and other teams in the company to evangelize the design system
  • Representing the design perspective in the cross-functional design system team

What we're looking for:

  • Strong abilities in user and customer experience design, usability, interaction design and prototyping for digital products/solutions
  • Proven experience in building and evolving design systems
  • You have expertise developing a robust and usable Figma components library.
  • Your portfolio proves your UX/UI and visual design experience.
  • You enjoy working organized, self-motivated, and efficient.
  • Systemic thinking and a pragmatic mindset
  • You have a deep knowledge of common interaction patterns and information architecture.
  • You can identify patterns and abstract them for use in different use cases.
  • You’re a great communicator 

What we offer:

  • Learning and development. We encourage continued education through a conference budget and external training
  • A competitive salary and stock options
  • Flexible working hours
  • Remote flexibility
  • International company retreats
  • Work with a great team (everyone says this, but we’re serious—we’re pretty great)
