Seeking Help with Yahoo!'s Pattern Library - Job Opening
- I have a really important and interesting position on my team here at
Yahoo! This position is a result of an internal transfer to another
role which opens up great opportunities for you!
Rather than post the full long bulletted list of the job description I
have presented here a brief overview of the role in the hopes that the
excitement that I feel about the role comes through. Please feel free
to ping me for the full description or if you have questions or if you
want to send me resume.
ABOUT THE TEAM - PLATFORM DESIGN
Platform Design at Yahoo! supports the Platform Products Group and is
responsible for the development of NETWORK standards, the PATTERN
Libraries, solutions and components for the UI WIDGET Library, for the
PERSONALIZATION platform, for intertwining COMMUNITY across the
network and for MEMBERSHIP touchpoints across the network. Our team
consists of Interaction Designers, Visual Designers, User Researchers
and Developers. Team members work closely with other cross
functional people from Product Management, Marketing, Engineering, QA,
and others across the company.
CURATE THE YAHOO! PATTERN LIBRARY
Yahoo!'s Platform User Experience Design team is looking for a new
curator for the Pattern Library. The curator works with designers from
across Yahoo! to develop new patterns and to eventually migrate a
pattern to the public library. You will be responsible for spotting
trends in the designs of our properties, for designing and crafting
new additions to the library and for evangelizing the authorship of
new patterns among your Interaction Designer colleagues.
You will partner with our Platform Presentation Engineering team to
create interactions and best practices that accompany the UI Widget
Library. Additionally, you will own the external Public Pattern
Library and develop the pattern lifecycle from internal to external
libraries. And last but not least, you will be the spearhead and
driver for a new addition to our Library suite - a new Terms Library
and will work closely with our internal editorial team.
Please respond to me directly with resume and links to work.
