About the Role

As the first dedicated Product Designer working on our Design Systems, you will play a critical role in the creation of design and code standards used across our Design and Engineering teams. Creative excellence is core to GlossGenius, and building the right systems to help us scale is one of our top priorities. 

You will report directly to our Head of Design. This role is welcome to either work in a hybrid environment with 2 days per week in our New York City office (Tuesdays & Thursdays) or fully remotely from one of our hub city locations (San Francisco, Seattle, Miami, Toronto).

What You’ll Do

  • Lead the creation, maintenance, and evolution of our Design Systems, including design language, component library, and guidelines
  • Collaborate closely with engineers to design high-quality, enterprise-grade components and patterns in Figma, ensuring consistency with the overall Design Systems vision
  • Define and document UI components, patterns, and best practices, ensuring scalability, flexibility, and usability across teams
  • Drive the adoption of the Design Systems within the organization through education and documentation
  • Advocate for accessibility, inclusivity, and user-centered design principles throughout the design and development process
  • Conduct regular audits of existing designs and components to identify opportunities for optimization and standardization

What We’re Looking For 

  • 2+ years of experience as a Product Designer with a focus on design systems
  • Strong portfolio demonstrating your contributions to design systems, including component libraries, style guides, and UI patterns
  • Experience with advanced prototyping tools (e.g. Principle, Framer, Sketch, Figma, InVision)
  • Solid understanding of design principles, typography, colorimetry, and interaction design
  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills, with the ability to articulate design decisions and rationale
  • A passion for design systems 
  • Experience navigating ambiguous high-growth, fast-paced product-driven environments

Benefits & Perks

  • Flexible PTO
  • Competitive health & dental insurance options, with premiums partially covered by GG
  • Fertility and adoption benefits via Carrot and Kindbody
  • Generous, fully-paid parental leave policy
  • 401k benefit - employees are eligible to contribute starting day 1 of employment
  • Professional Development - employees receive a yearly stipend for approved learning and educational-related expenses
  • Pre-tax commuter benefits
  • Dependent Care FSA
  • Home office stipend
  • Team Bonding: As a distributed team, being able to build meaningful bonds both virtually and in person is incredibly important to us! We are constantly evaluating how we accomplish this and currently, teams are given opportunities to gather in person throughout the year.

The starting base salary for this role in New York, California, and Washington is between $140,000-$160,000 + target equity + benefits. The base salary offered is dependent upon many factors including skills, experience, location, and education. The base pay range is subject to change and may be modified in the future. 

Additionally, this role is currently eligible to participate in GlossGenius’s equity plan as well as a range of health & wellbeing, retirement savings, and other benefits within our total rewards offering.

At GlossGenius, we celebrate our differences and are committed to creating a workplace where all employees feel supported and empowered to do their best work.
