Your challenge

User Experience | Design System | Product Design | Technology | Complexity  

Are you passionate about building and maintaining an enterprise-wide design system to support your colleagues in their daily design work and to create a seamless user experience for our various products? Do you love to solve complex user centered design problems? Are you looking for teammates who appreciate open communication and face obstacles together? 

At LGT, we are redesigning our Design System landscape. And for that, we need a Product Experience Designer who can both think on a strategical level and work across different teams to create consensus and provide deliverables. That means you have the opportunity to impact all products developed at the company by being a Design System key contributor. 

We are building a true design + build system based on Atomic Design, fully aligned for designers and developers. In this role you work as part of the User Experience Team where you design our foundational patterns and UI components and thereby shaping the overall look of our products and services by creating a consistent, flexible, and cohesive system. By standardizing tooling, processes, and documentation you empower our strategic design vision and help us with growing and scaling an organization-wide, world-class platform. 

You join a fast-growing global team of designers sitting across our business units in Liechtenstein, Switzerland, England, Spain, Singapore and Hongkong.
