At SoFi I'm the Director of Visual Design on the core team. My day to day consists of collaborating with my team of designers, designers on the product design team and with engineering.
The Core Team is responsible for the SoFi design system. A system that we started in the summer of 2017. We did our first major update in the fall of 2017. We started to ship new product experiences with our Design System in the summer of 2018.
Our Design System is a collaboration between design and engineering. We design and document components for both responsive web and native mobile. Work directly with engineers to get components built in their respective languages and work with product design to make sure screens stay within the defined system. Building or updating design components when we need to.
