We are looking for an experienced design talent to become the owner of our new Outotec Design system. We believe that a design system guarantees our users a consistent Outotec-branded experience across all our digital products and services. For development teams, the reusable components and patterns of the Sketch- and React-based libraries coupled with design principles and process inspire and accelerate the development to create even better digital solutions for our customers.

As the versatile and inspiring owner of the Outotec Design system, you will take the Design system to the next level and beyond the minimum viable product. You will continue to build a company-wide system that can tackle even more challenging needs of our digital offering ranging from customer portal to asset analytics to digital twins or even venture to operator room user interfaces or equipment touch panels.

The Design system is developed as a part of Outotec’s Digital Solutions Platform – a platform focused on solving real-world challenges to improve safety, performance and sustainability of our customers’ operations. See more about us at dev.outotec.com!
