You will lead the creation and implementation of resources, tools and documentation that supports the design system and be responsible for building and maintaining cross functional relationships across the company and evangelizing the adoption of the system. You will also be providing design leadership and guidance to teams around using shared patterns, and identifying opportunities to create new patterns and components within their workstreams.
