You will help product design teams meet customers' high expectations for quality and familiarity by applying system-provided interface elements, icons, text styles, and uniform terminology to innovative new features; work across product design teams to identify emerging trends, and turn them into reusable patterns; develop and maintain a pattern library and documentation; and advocate for UI standards and accessibility with designers, engineers, and stakeholders.

You're an advocate for visual and behavioral consistency, with deep knowledge of Apple's Human Interface Guidelines.
You can spot opportunities to apply standards to new features, but know when it's time for the playbook to evolve.
You identify new design trends emerging in the design community within Apple and at large, and find meaningful ways to incorporate them into Apple's design language.
