Crafting interfaces for such sophisticated demands is not your everyday challenge, there is little out there in the Interaction Design community to be guided by. This makes a powerful, flexible, cohesive Design System even more important than usual, and this is exactly what we’re working on. We’re building a team of dedicated UI and UX Designers who strive to deliver the best user experience for our customers, while understanding the necessity of task efficiency and the careful trade-offs this requires them to make. It’s okay if this domain is new territory for you - while our Design Principles will be quite different, the challenges you’ll have to tackle are just as fascinating and rewarding.
The new WiseTech Global multi-brand design system will be the central hub for all of our applications and brands. It will provide tools, support and education to enable our design and engineering teams to build cohesive and modern applications.
The Senior UI Designer we are looking for will play a key role in creating, maintaining, documenting and evolving this design system and help our embedded UX designers overcome truly complex UI challenges.
What does the work look like?
Our Design Team follows the hub and spoke model: UX Designers are embedded in the business units (the spokes) to work with their teams on product challenges. Specialised UI Designers work on the growing Design System (the hub) to enable the embedded Designers to solve those challenges.
In collaboration with the Lead Designer and several other Designers, you will evolve our new visual design direction - turning complex and difficult UI challenges into functional, efficient, and easy-to-use components, patterns and layouts. You will work closely with our dedicated engineering team on a cohesive delivery of our component library. And you will support our embedded Designers by providing guidance, feedback, and support for their work, to ensure the correct usage and implementation of the design system. You will need to be an expert in Figma, and you will share your knowledge and skills in this tool with the broader design team. You will always be on the lookout for ways to expand and improve our system and our applications.
There are also many other creative design challenges outside of the Design System that you can lend a helping hand from time to time.

Some other things you might want to know
Our Design team is still relatively young, but growing fast, both in numbers and influence. You’ll be joining a team of passionate, diverse and talented Designers, and you’ll be playing an active part in shaping our Design culture. There are many decisions that we still need to make together, and your prior experience will help us overcome future obstacles.
We’ve made sure that there are clear pathways for our designers to progress in their careers that are personally supported by our Head of Design and endorsed by the wider business.
We’re a hybrid working environment, and meet up as a Design team once per fortnight in our Alexandria office in Sydney. We have a bunch of team and company-wide social events to get together as people and have some fun.
