Job Description

Summary Exygy seeks an enthusiastic, experienced, and creative Product Designer (focused on UI Design and Design Systems) who is passionate about making a difference in the world with design and technology. Join our tight-knit and growing team to build a wide variety of high-impact projects with our civic and health sector clients. This is a full-time remote position. Role As a product designer at Exygy you will spend most of your time on our Bloom affordable housing project team, designing new features for our client engagements, while supporting and expanding an existing design system for the core platform. You will be responsible for collaborating with Exygy/Bloom UX designers, researchers, product managers and engineers in all phases of the design process - from research to production. Because of the Bloom product’s social impact focus, our end users are often members of underserved and underrepresented communities. That makes it even more important to bring a true human-centered design approach to our process. For this position, you should be able to support the conducting of user and stakeholder research in an accessible and equitable way with members of these communities. Bringing empathetic and approachable mindsets and processes is crucial to build relationships with our partners and the communities they serve. You will be responsible for driving and maintaining design systems (including shareable styles, searchable component libraries, supporting documentation. etc), creating mockups and clickable prototypes. Through product growth, you will need to facilitate the ongoing governance of the design system. To do this, you should be able to co-facilitate communication channels and ideation sessions with researchers, product managers and engineers to make sure their voices are represented in the resulting design decisions, component updates and usability documentation. Ensuring the final design assets are accessible, impactful and equitable is an important part of our process. Part of this work will entail collaborating with our accessibility partners in the community to audit and test our components with assistive technology on a regular basis. Since this is also a client-facing role, you should also be ready to create presentations and present to clients as well as clearly articulate design rationale and decisions to internal and external stakeholders and community members.
