This job is no longer accepting applications.

The Design System team is responsible for the quality and consistency of the whole platform’s user interface. We build and maintain a comprehensive set of components and guidelines for other teams to develop their features, both on Web, iOS, and Android. We also work on cross-cutting initiatives that span multiple apps and features, with subjects like Accessibility, Typography, and Colors.

At Compass You Will:

  • Own components from concept to code — knowing nothing is ever really final. 
  • Build complex frontend features using React and Typescript.
  • Collaborate with designers and with every team at Compass that own user interfaces.
  • Document and communicate how your components behave so that designers, engineers, and product managers get the most out of our design system.
  • Thrive in a scalable engineering culture that leverages modern principles of decoupled systems, high ownership, and automated CI/CD/testing/monitoring.
  • Become a domain expert on real estate technology and products and an empathetic partner to our customers.


What We Look For:

  • Experience in fast-paced teams, with high-traffic production web applications, partaking in the full product lifecycle from ideation, release, and monitoring.
  • Experience building user interfaces.
  • 3+ years of experience with Javascript, including modern features in ES6 and ES7.
  • 3+ years of experience with React, Angular, VueJS, or any other relevant frontend framework.
  • 3+ years of experience with HTML and CSS 
  • Experience with React, Typescript, and Webpack is a plus.
  • Experience with at least one modern Javascript package management tool like NPM, PNPM, or Yarn.
  • An enthusiasm for Accessibility.
  • A relentless desire to improve - yourself, your team, processes, user experience, tooling, etc.
