Description
Design Publisher 

eBay, Inc. is changing. 

We started with the simple idea that internet commerce could be democratized. In the brave days of the early web we built a truly open marketplace, and it was FUN. The following 20+ years of steady growth and global expansion have given millions of people a place to find and sell the things they love. It has also inevitably added some complexity and obfuscation to our core product. 
We aim to fix that, and we need your help. 
We're looking for a design publisher to help us build the new eBay. As a member of the design platforms team you will be a steward of the end-to-end design system, working to bring coherence to our disparate platforms. Together we'll evolve the eBay experience, finding new ways to empower buyers and sellers everywhere. 

What you have: 
Real passion for user-centered design and collaborative work 
Ability to communicate complex ideas clearly to different audiences 
Experience working closely (and sometimes bridging the gap) between designers and developers 
Expertise in standard design and prototyping tools including Sketch and InVision 
Eagerness to learn, expand your skills, and try new tools 
Ardent love of efficiency and the ability to visualize and execute processes 
Experience with design system frameworks like Bootstrap, Foundation and Atomic 
Working knowledge of design specification tools like Zeplin and Inspector 
An understanding of the Design Process 
Familiarity with lean UX methodology 
HTML, CSS & JavaScript knowledge is a plus 
***Drupal/CMS management experience**** 

What you will do: 
You will continually document and catalogue our evolving design system 
You will evangelize platform standards (Web, iOS, Android) across the organization 
You will develop specifications for UI designs and work with developers to implement them 
You will build supporting artifacts to facilitate communication including presentations, UI kits, style tiles, style guides, and supporting graphic assets for developers 
You will participate in product and design discussions with the team 

This is a full-time contract position, working from your choice of our San Francisco office or San Jose HQ. We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
