Overview:  

We don’t simply hire employees. We invest in them. When you work at Chatham, we empower you — offering professional development opportunities to help you grow in your career, no matter if you've been here for five months or 15 years. Chatham has worked hard to create a distinct work environment that values people, teamwork, integrity, and client service. You will have immediate opportunities to partner with talented subject matter experts, work on complex projects, and contribute to the value Chatham delivers every day.  

Our technology team is made up of a team of Software Engineers, Testers, DevOps Engineers, Security Engineers, UX Designers, UI Designers, UX Researchers, Quants and DBAs. We build software for our clients that range across multiple sectors and industries as well as tools for our internal users to help them better serve our clients. 

The design systems squad is a small group within the larger design team who are laser focused on streamlining the design to development handoff and making visually pleasing, well-functioning, accessible interfaces along the way with our engineer and product partners. You will not be a small gear within a large machine here. We want you to have the freedom to make an impact on the team that’s unique to you and grow into spaces you carve out for yourself. We have come a long way from a couple, simple components within a pattern library to an ever-evolving design system and we would love to find someone who wants to help us get to our next stage of maturity. 

In this role you will:

  • Actively contribute to and help maintain our design system, including Sketch and Axure libraries, guidelines, and components
  • Research and define cross-product team patterns with the goal of improving and standardizing designs with a user-centered approach
  • Write research-informed documentation on how and why components and patterns are applied
  • Pair with other designers on their interfaces and provide recommendations on how to group components together to create better experiences for our users
  • Provide support for other designers and engineers during sprints to resolve design system issues and answer questions
  • Collaborate with the researchers to do user testing to ensure usability standards are met
  • Uphold quality standards through visual QA and design system audits
  • Be an active member of the design team, participating in interface reviews and sharing your own work

Your impact: 

We are seeking a growing designer to join our design systems squad. In this role, you’ll create and improve foundational components, UI patterns, tools, and guidelines that enable both designers and engineers to focus on product-level problems and ship high-quality work efficiently and consistently. You’ll work closely with other designers, researchers, and engineers during their sprints and become an advocate for both the design system and design process.  

Contributors to your success: 

  • Strong visual and interaction design skills 
  • Experience creating high fidelity prototypes and interface mockups 
  • Experience with contributing to a design system
  • Highly collaborative nature with the ability to navigate team dynamics to drive the growth and adoption of the design system
  • Experience designing WCAG-compliant, accessible interfaces is a plus 
  • Basic knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript
  • Degree or certification in design related studies
  • Portfolio demonstrating design system deliverables and/or user experience and visual design work

This role offers flexibility and is eligible for a hybrid work arrangement.
