eBay Senior Visual Designer in San Francisco, California
As a Visual Designer in the eBay product design group, you will help to drive the future state of our product design language working (within the Payments domain team / across all domains experiences) in collaboration with the leadership team, design leads and working closely with our product & brand partners. Your key responsibility is to craft a compelling design vocabulary, mood & visual style for eBay. Visual Designers are specialists with a passion for typography, iconography, layout, color, motion, sound, 2D, 3D, AR & VR. Your focus will be to help drive, adopt, and maintain the new core design primitives (typography, iconography, radius (shape), color, sound, depth, motion, layout, navigation) for eBay web, mobile, and tablet experiences. It will be the Visual Designer’s responsibility to align very closely with brand to help shift the narrative and bring brand through the core product design experience. This will allow the product experience to inform the brand expression and create a holistic CX across everything eBay executes. The Visual Designer will also need to work closely with engineering to ensure quality control and to ensure pixel-perfect execution. The Visual Designer will be responsible for adopting, scaling, maintaining & helping to drive the shared core component systems and for updating the product design playbook or style guide for companywide use. You will work closely with design leaders, product management, brand, marketing, and engineering to successfully go from early stage product concepts to launch. You are a very creative visionary that can translate business needs into a fantastic customer-focused solution. You must be responsive, flexible, and able to succeed within an open and collaborative peer environment. The ideal candidate for this position will be at ease visualizing an experience in the abstract and then being able to drive that vision into solid design deliverables. Visual Designers are visual storytellers that can produce great visual concepts and deliver those concepts in high fidelity with the highest-quality fit and finish. They know how to execute dynamic designs that translate into motion and can storyboard their ideas to help direct motion designers to execute a vision. They can discern what is good design and clearly articulate why. They are our tastemakers.
Visual Designers employ humanist design methods to craft superior UX, usability, & legibility. They develop and maintain highest design standards and act responsibly in their execution of these standards, as well strive to continuously innovate and improve. They may manage other Visual Designers and/or vendors. They interact with the relevant business, development, project/program management groups, other designers and executives to succeed. While our Visual Designers are passionate about their discipline and customer experience, they also possess the business acumen to understand the impact of their efforts within a wider scope.
