Ring: Design System
At Ring, we grew the mobile product design team headcount from 3 to 13 in the past two years. From Q4 2017, I took the full-time design system role to focus on scaling up our design team, design system and design management. My partner in crime was Andriy to keep the RDS up and running 24/7/365.

A design system is not complete without the pixel-perfect components built and ready for the developers in other teams. I worked with Lasha and other talented engineers to build out the component library in Swift and Java. (We couldn't afford React Native or Flutter) My time was split between working with the designers to design scalable interface components and working with the iOS and Android engineers to bring the pixels to life, and document "RDS Dictionary" to educate other team members.
