  • Exceptional attention to detail and comfortable working in rapid iteration
  • Ability to work across several projects simultaneously
  • Extraordinary ability to advocate for UI consistency with designers, engineers, product managers, and executives through writing, visuals, and presentations
  • Documenting interaction details, visual design specifications and QA of the implemented product
  • Familiarity with accessibility standards, inclusive design practices, and accessibility features on Apple operating systems
  • Fluent in Sketch
  • Prototyping skills are a plus

Description

Help product design teams meet customers' high expectations for quality and familiarity by applying system-provided interface elements, icons, text styles, and uniform terminology across our products and features.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

Work across content to identify emerging trends, and turn them into reusable patterns.
Develop and maintain a pattern library and documentation.
Advocate for UI standards and accessibility with designers, engineers, and partners across Apple.
Spot opportunities to apply standards to new features, but know and support when it's time for the playbook to evolve.
Identify new design trends emerging in the design community within Apple and at large, and find significant ways to incorporate them into Apple's design language.
Contribute to a design system, providing detailed specs, logic and rules for a variety of use cases.
Comfortable working with cross functionally to ensure ideas are expressed appropriately.
Understand customer goals, business requirements, technical constraints, and be able to work within project parameters.
Have a deep understanding of our target customers.
Attend product meetings and have a granular understanding of Apple's goals.
Participate in QA as it pertains to content, file bugs as when needed.
Work closely with the Design team, to tackle UI challenges in response to product requirements and the Engineering team to assure design quality by auditing implementation during development.

Work on a team where:
Design and user experience is represented and defended.
The best ideas win, regardless of source!
Trust, sharing and healthy debate is the norm.
We work closely, collaboratively, and cooperatively with one another to achieve our common goals.
We develop effective processes that ensure success.
We eat together...again, sometime soon.

Apple's most important resource, our soul, is our people. Apple benefits help further the well-being of our employees and their families in meaningful ways. No matter where you work at Apple, you can take advantage of our health and wellness resources and time-away programs. We're proud to provide stock grants to employees at all levels of the company, and we also give employees the option to buy Apple stock at a discount - both offer everyone at Apple the chance to share in the company's success.
