At S Group we are building world-class design and development competence to meet our customers’expectations.We combineresearch,creativity,anddetails crafted with lovetomake ourcustomers’daily liveseasier. At SOK Design we, almost 40 designers, provide the human factor to virtually everything. 

We operate and serve our customers in several different business fields: we have services in grocery stores, consumer goods/fashion/beauty stores, banking sector, service stations, hotels and restaurants. We work to create a coherent and delightful omni-channel customer experience throughout S Group’s different services on different channels (brick-and-mortar and digital channels, web and mobile).

To increase productivity and efficiency and to improve consistency, scalability and maintainability and to improve our employee experience, we have started to build S Design System. S Design System is a company-wide, multi-brand initiative and sort of an internal open source project. We are not exaggerating, when claiming that our Design System is and will be one of the widest in Finland. The scale is large, and thus we are looking for a Senior UX Designer to join our team of seven.

Senior UX Designer, S Design System

S Design System team designs and develops S Design System, which consists of design tokens, design kits, components and documentation. Design System work started in February 2022 and S Group’s product teams’ designers and developers are adopting new Design System gradually during this year. So we have already elements in use, but there is still a lot of greenfield work to be done for years to come. Communication is the key in this kind of horizontal effort, so we also create documentation to make the usage of Design System design and dev products as easy and convenient as possible. Our team works at the intersection of design and development, and horizontally unites the frontend and mobile development communities throughout SOK.

The team consists currently of seven team members (Design Lead/PO, two designers, three frontend engineers and one mobile engineer). We work in a hybrid mode and see each other at the office on a weekly basis. Our workflow covers the whole pipeline from research, propose/concept, detail-level design, coding, documentation and creating design kits with components and design tokens.
