At Netflix, we aspire to entertain the world and are constantly innovating on how entertainment is imagined, created, and delivered to a global audience. We currently stream content in more than 30 languages in 190 countries, topping over 240 million paid members.
Netflix’s business continues to expand in new ways to serve our global members. Whether it’s evolving how we offer best-in-class entertainment content to new forms that entertainment may take (games, live events, etc), as a global company it is important that we build high-quality infrastructure tailored to supporting innovation at scale.
About The Team
This role sits on the Design Foundations team, which is part of Core XD, a horizontal organization whose mission is to enable quality and innovation at scale. We have multiple sub-teams, each focused on a different aspect of this mission. We are accelerators and partners, with collaboration and the success of product teams at the heart of what we do.
About The Role
The Design Foundations team at Netflix is searching for a systems designer to help shape the next phase of Hawkins, our design system. As a System Designer on the team, you will collaborate closely with product design, engineering, content design, and design ops organizations. You should be passionate about delivering quality at scale and reimagining how designers and engineers work together to build scalable experiences.

What You’ll Do

  • Maintain and improve cross-platform component design libraries in Figma, based on user feedback.
  • Collaborate directly with cross-platform engineering teams to build components based on robust design specs.
  • Collaborate early and often with feature teams to solve real pain points and drive adoption of the system.
  • Create detailed design documentation to support design and engineering usage of Hawkins.
  • Build for accessibility upfront in the creative design process, and advocate for inclusive experiences across platforms.
  • Drive thoughtful engagement with our design community by participating in our operational programs like Office Hours.

The Must - Haves

  • 5+ years of experience contributing to a Design System in Figma
  • Experience designing within Consumer products for Android, iOS, Web or TV platform
  • You foster an open, inclusive environment for others to provide feedback, share ideas, and crack challenging problems together.
  • You understand the basics of technical constraints and how to design iterative solutions to effectively partner with engineering teams.
  • You are passionate about design craft and attention to detail.
  • You are known as a strong communicator who articulates design rationale based on qualitative and quantitative data.

Bonus

  • Given the nature of design system work, system designers usually bring a unique skill set and superpower to the team. Have you worked on a motion system? Maybe you have an engineering background or perhaps you led accessibility efforts for a previous system? We are always looking for unique skill sets to augment the rest of the team and believe in the power of interdisciplinary thinking. We’d love to know your superpower!
