A Little About the Role

As the Principal Designer of the Design System team, you will have the unique opportunity to influence the product direction for Verizon Media's business products and services. You will blend world class visual design with classic interaction design principles to support the goal of empowering our teams to efficiently create beautiful products that are easy to use.

As part of the Unified Design System team you will craft, standardize, and champion a reusable and scalable set of components that will be adopted by multiple product design teams. The role will require you to be a passionate collaborator who focuses on designing solutions that our users love and defining processes and tools that empower our designers to move forward.

You will work closely with a highly collaborative team of product designers, user researchers, product managers, marketers, technologists, and business leaders to bring ideas to life. Moreover, you will help to mentor the design team to grow their skills and take our products to the next level. This role will be based in New York City with occasional travel between different offices in the US and internationally (dependent upon travel guidelines/restrictions).
