Talend, a leader in data integration and data integrity, is changing the way the world makes decisions.

Talend Data Fabric is the only platform that seamlessly combines an extensive range of data integration and governance capabilities to actively manage the health of corporate information. This unified approach is unique and essential to delivering complete, clean, and uncompromised data in real-time to all. 

Over 6,500 customers have chosen Talend to run their businesses on healthy data. Talend is consistently recognized as a leader in its field by Forrester and Gartner.
We pride ourselves in our values of Passion, Agility, Team Spirit, and Integrity. Every one of our 1,400 employees brings a certain je ne sais quoi that makes Talend special.

We are Talend, a worldwide leading data integration and data governance company. With our apps you can share clean, complete and uncompromised data: healthy data people can trust.

We're looking for a Design System Designer to join our Design System team. At Talend, we are convinced that a Design System is composed of the UI kit, guidance, and reusable components. Prompted by this knowledge, nothing can be shipped without all of those being done at first.

Our team builds the Talend Design System. We deliver a shared and consistent design foundation, a library of reusable user interface components, and a set of tools that allow Talend teams to build the interfaces using modern web standards, guided by usability and accessibility best practices.

We are in charge of providing a whole Design System that allows product teams to deliver well-shaped interfaces for the two last versions of the most used web browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and Safari).

As a Design System Designer, you will be responsible for the overall design and participate in the development of the system. As part of a small in-house team, you are expected to find the right balance between teamwork and autonomy.

We are looking for a new teammate who is enthusiastic, empathetic, curious, motivated, reliable, and able to work effectively with a diverse team of peers.

    • Be autonomous. You take full ownership of your work and drive your personal development. And you take responsibility for every last detail, every step of the way.

What we are looking for in our new Design System Designer:

    • Manage the Figma library: create new components with its variations and update the existing component with the Product Designers
    • Document the Design System elements (components, patterns, pages...) —
    • Own different projects and share progress with the teams involved.
    • Accessibility standards knowledge, how to test it and solve issues.
    • Having a web culture is a requirement: be able to identify a component and to understand its purpose
