Our design system, Mosaic, is in its early stages and we're looking for an experienced UI developer to join our growing development team. Working closely with designers and developers, you'll help scale up how we build digital products for the many, diverse users of Octopus EV's products.

What you'll do

  • Help set the vision and strategy for the design system as we roll out updated designs and adopt new concepts like design tokens, themes and more
  • Help to evolve and define how UI components are built for our products
  • Ensure that components are accessible, responsive, and optimised for performance across multiple platforms and devices
  • Collaborate with other cross-functional teams to integrate the design system into our products
  • Develop and maintain documentation for the design system, including design principles, guidelines, and component libraries

What you'll need

  • Highly organised with effective time management skills
  • Strong communication and stakeholder management skills
  • 2+ years of experience working in either a UI development or product design role
  • Can write solid, semantic HTML markup with a strong focus on accessibility

  • An understanding of JavaScript frameworks, particularly React/Next.js
  • Experience of testing across browsers and devices to ensure the UI is functional and accessible on a wide range of desktops, mobiles, and tablets
  • Experience working within Figma, and a clear understanding of autolayout
  • It would be beneficial if you had:
  • -Prior experience working on a design system
    -Familiarity with TypeScript
    -An understanding of more advanced Figma features such as components, assigning properties, branching and variables
    -Experience with common design systems tools, such as, but not limited to Storybook, Chromatic, and Zeroheight

Why else you'll love it here

  • Wondering what the salary for this role is? Just ask us! On a call with one of our recruiters it's something we always cover as we genuinely want to match your experience with the correct salary. The reason why we don't advertise is because we honestly have a degree of flexibility and would never want salary to be a reason why someone doesn't apply to Octopus - what's more important to us is finding the right octofit!
  • Octopus Energy is a unique culture. An organisation where people learn, decide, and build quicker. Where people work with autonomy, alongside a wide range of amazing co-owners, on projects that break new ground. We want your hard work to be rewarded with perks you actually care about! We won best company to work for in 2022, on Glassdoor we were voted 50 best places to work in 2022 and our Group CEO, Greg has recorded a podcast about our culture and how we empower our people
