  • Create processes and tools inside Figma that make designing with our design system enjoyable and effortless
  • Learn how existing components are being used by us and our users and how they can be improved
  • Participate in user research and testing to further understand what our customers and users want and how our design system can help
  • Partner with your design teammates on their projects, pushing them to create beautiful UIs that take full advantage of our design system
