Because you belong at Twilio

The Who, What, Where and Why

Who?

Twilio is looking for an Engineer Manager to join the Design Systems team. In this role you will lead and inspire a thoughtful, high-impact, and diverse team that works in close collaboration with front-end engineers and product designers across Twilio and shape the UI/UX, component libraries, and other designer / developer tools.

In this role, you will empower and mentor your team as they create Paste: an inclusive design system platform that helps Twilio employees and their customers build sophisticated user experiences. Your work will involve driving consensus and agreement between teams, building robust processes, and ensuring that every voice in the room shapes the design system. You’ll have the opportunity to practice situational leadership and shepherd the changing needs of Twilio’s UX over the coming years.

  • You have a thorough understanding of User Interfaces development and design in a component-based approach. We use React and write TypeScript but familiarity with other component-based UI libraries is welcome.
  • You have an understanding of, or a willingness to learn about design systems, inclusive design and web accessibility principles.
  • You will truly feel at home in this team if you approach work with humility, collaborate with fellow product designers and researchers, and are able to state your point of view with clarity.

What?

Our culture is highly collaborative, and you’ll be working closely with engineering, architecture, product management, and product design to create new user experiences and improve existing ones.

  • Empower Others: Lead a team that designs high quality, inclusive UI Components that enable the entire organization to build world-class experiences that delight our customers.

  • Be an Owner: Champion the needs of UI builders (within your team and across the organization) by truly empathizing with their needs  and equipping them with the tools required to succeed.

  • Draw the Owl: Set a new standard for Inclusive Design by advocating for the needs of each user (not the average user) and committing to supporting a UI platform that is accessible and approachable by all.

  • No Shenanigans: Build a culture of transparency and radical candor that promotes high levels of connection, healthy conversation with diverse perspectives, and strong bonds amongst a distributed team.

Why?

The Design Systems team is a platform that serves internal and external customers by delivering tools and processes that enable great customer experiences. The team powers critical parts of Twilio’s current products and is responsible for designing the next generation of its user experiences.

Twilio is a company that is empowering the world’s developers with modern communication in order to build better applications. Twilio is truly unique; we are a company committed to your growth, your learning, your development and your entire employee experience.  We only win when our employees succeed and we're dedicated to helping you develop your strengths. We have a cultural foundation built on diversity, inclusion and innovation and we want you and your ideas to thrive at Twilio.

Where?

This position is remote friendly, and can also be located in our beautiful office at 1801 California St. in Denver, CO. You will enjoy our incredible perks: catered meals, snacks, game room, ergonomic desks, access to our building fitness center, monthly All Hands and more. 

You will also be part of a company that believes in small teams for maximum impact; that strives to balance work and home life; that understands that this is a marathon, not a sprint; that continuously and purposefully builds an inclusive culture where everyone is able to do and be the best version of themselves. We seek people who naturally demonstrate our values, who are challenged by problems, empower others to thrive, and can draw the owl and not be beholden to one playbook.
