About Take Command
Join a tight-knit, mission-driven team that tackles real problems for real people in healthcare. At Take Command, you'll be doing career-defining work with a market-defining health insurance start-up that truly lives out its core values. 
Let’s be honest—health insurance is usually a confusing, frustrating, and even emotional experience for people. We’re on a mission to fix that with a new model, great technology, and a superior user experience. We have made a great start, but we need your leadership to fully realize our long-term vision.

What you'll do:
- Drive a significant initiative to evolve our current design system. Lead the education, conversation, and adoption of the design system across the enterprise while testing, measuring, and iterating on its components using Adobe XD and/or Figma. 
- Work hands-on with senior members of product design and brand to deliver a vision that elevates the standards and design aesthetic of Take Command’s visual language across our applications.
- Govern the design system, collaborate across design and engineering to ensure best practices and standards are established and followed using Storybook.
- Write clear, succinct documentation.
- Follow accessibility guidelines in your design patterns. 
- Create and iterate on designs using the design system. This work will be a small part of your focus at first. As the design system becomes more mature and adopted, you’ll spend more time executing designs. While UI is your primary strength, you have some design generalist spirit as well. 
- Participate in design thinking sessions.
- Create systems for efficiently setting up usability tests with realistic data and customer experiences.
- Collaborate with design team to build tooling to speed up workflows for usability tests using realistic data, customer journey maps, and more. 
- Be a full member of the design and technology teams helping us build the market leader Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA) software.

- 5+ years of professional experience working as a product designer
- A portfolio of design projects that demonstrates systems thinking, technical skills, and visual design
- Previous experience working or with on design systems
- Experience working with third-party component libraries
- A deep understanding of UX best practices in responsive web applications—including WCAG compliance (accessibility guidelines)
- Strong visual awareness and sensibilities
- UI styling as a strength. You’re fast, skilled, and energized by working on UI details. You apply precise padding and margin on input forms, never skip empty states, your shadows are just so for each state of an element, colors are applied consistently, etc.

It's a bonus if you have:
- Expertise in interaction design, Lottie animation creation, and general motion design
- Expertise in illustrations. Either creation from scratch or using free illustrations as a jumping off point to customize
- Front-end coding

- Take this 2-5 min UI/UX self-assessment survey 
- The goal here is to demonstrate that you can build a visually clear and pleasant UI system that is convenient to use. Consider showcasing some of the things listed below and anything else to meet this goal. 
- UI elements that add understanding and/or encourage people to take actions
- Simplicity from complexity
- Empty state designs
- Multiple states of elements 
- Complying with accessibility standards
- Following standard design patterns
- A design pattern that is unique and why it would be a good reason to break conventions
- Instructions for when and how to use elements including when and not to use them
