Sr Product Designer - Foundations

Design
in San Francisco, California

Our Design teams are focused not just on the functional, but also on joy and delight. Our work ignites opportunity and changes the way the world moves, and we design for users around the world of all backgrounds and abilities.

About the Role

Foundations Designers at Uber craft complex shared UI patterns as a critical part of our growing design system, Base. This role lives in between systems design and product design.

You'll be working on a broad variety of existing and yet-to-be-defined UI solutions that are used across multiple lines of business. You'll collaborate with different designers across services, for both mobile and web, to uncover all of the framework requirements and draw systematic solutions to facilitate product solutions across Uber. Your work will help up-level design quality, speed up development time, and future-proof our UX.

What You'll Do:

  • Design UI frameworks, components, and flows that scale well to different use cases.
  • Help identify potential new UI patterns.
  • Obsess over the functional and visual elements of the UI pattern, as well as their behavior, constraints, and rules.
  • Use real-world product scenarios to inform the design.
  • Collaborate with product and systems designers to balance the needs.
  • Help publish libraries of frameworks for other designers at Uber to use.
  • Collaborate with the Base Design Systems team to document components & frameworks.
  • Collaborate with engineers to translate designs to code. In other words, you won't just be theorizing in a vision document--you will be building tangible results.
  • Be a champion for systems thinking and shared frameworks.

Basic Qualifications

  • Minimum 5 years of experience with mobile product and design systems design

Preferred Qualifications

  • Familiarity with Figma (or similar) libraries and with concepts of publishing shared design components.
  • Coding skills to show the design and communicate the way the components can work.
  • Prototyping experience
  • Experience in system and product design.
  • A portfolio showing your high quality, thoughtful UI work
  • A track record of shipping phenomenal design, and an understanding of what matters at each stage of the release cycle.
  • Ability to leverage Uber design patterns while evolving the framework to seek new use cases
  • Proven understanding of systems thinking and integrating across a platform
  • Love of critique, knowledge sharing, and teamwork,
