  • Application Deadline: Sept. 2, 2019
  • Stockholm

Mentimeter is one of the fastest growing companies in Sweden (Gasell 2018). We have a large and constantly expanding userbase (currently ~50 million). To be able to scale accordingly, we need a Design System Engineer to help us scale our design system to our products. Continuous integration and continuous deployment are important to us, and we would benefit from creating a test suite where bugs are caught before they reach the end user. This would also increase the confidence when doing changes and allow us to iterate more quickly.

To succeed in the role you need a huge interest in Design Systems with a passion for making developer experience amazing and streamlined. This is a technology heavy role, meaning that your responsibility is not to design, but to allow us to design with great speed: confident and safely. You will help us adhere to a safe continuous deploy process and set up a stream-lined monorepo flow where testing and quality assurance are keys.

We believe that a brilliant person with the right ambition can really leverage their time at Mentimeter. We are growing fast, and with us, so can you.

What you'll do:

  • Build and use modern tools to develop reusable, scalable and clean code
  • Support on the maintenance, sustainability and innovation of our monorepo
  • Identify and address design, development, and performance bottlenecks
  • Create a sustainable eco-system where confident and continuous deploys are key
  • Innovate and find new ways of solving cross-platform design problems that scale
  • Collaborate with designers, developers and stakeholders in the organization
  • Document and support designers and developers in the organization
