About LaunchDarkly

LaunchDarkly is a Feature Management Platform that serves over 100 billion feature flags daily to help software teams build better software, faster. Feature flagging is an industry best practice of wrapping a new or risky section of code or infrastructure change with a flag. Each flag can easily be turned off independent of code deployment (aka ”dark launching”).

Job Description

Are you someone who lives between the worlds of design and development? You write code, but don't want to pigeonhole yourself as an engineer? You have a keen eye and passion for aesthetics, but don't want to be boxed in a design role? Do these articles by Brad Frost and Jonathan Snook resonate? If so, you would be a great fit for a Design Engineer at LaunchDarkly.

Software powers the world, and LaunchDarkly empowers all teams to deliver and control the best software. We serve hundreds of billions of feature flags daily, to help teams ship better software, faster and eliminate risk for companies big and small.

We're looking for our first Senior Design Engineer to build out our design system for our core product offering, and take our aesthetic to the next level. You'll be a founding member of a cross-functional team dedicated to this mission. You'll work with Product Designers on component design and UX patterns, and with Frontend Engineers to implement those designs. 

This role will work closely with the Head of Product Design.

What you'll do

  • Build React components for our design system
  • Do final design polish, such as hover and focus states, transitions, and responsiveness
  • Partner with product designers on component and pattern designs
  • Partner with engineers on building components and adopting them in the codebase
  • Educate designers and developers on how to use and contribute to our design system
  • Document the design system, including how components work and the larger design patterns we use
  • Bring an engineering perspective to the design process to voice issues with feasibility and call out missed edge-cases

Basic Qualifications

  • Have experience building design systems
  • Knowledge of and experience with modern JavaScript
  • Expert in HTML and CSS
  • Experience documenting design systems using technologies such as Storybook
  • Eye for visual design, interaction design, and overall component and pattern quality
