San Francisco

 

Rally Health is all about putting health in the hands of the individual. It’s our mission, and it drives everything we do, which is to empower people with easy-to-use online and mobile tools that help them take charge of their health and health care, from improving their diet and fitness to selecting health benefits, and choosing the right doctor at the right price for their needs.

Our culture is built on a deep and sincere commitment to helping people live healthier lives. To do this, we are committed to innovating at every level. As our leadership says, “We are a company that continuously innovates. It cannot end. It has to be in everything we do, which means that some of the things we’re going to do are not going to work – and that’s okay. We’re not trying to build something that is churn and burn. We’re building something that follows consumers over their lifetime.”

Rally is seeking a Design System Lead to drive the vision, and product management of a design system of visual style, UI components, and other design concerns.  The ideal candidate will have a Designer’s DNA but Product Manager’s approach and take a systems-mindset to build and integrate consistent, efficient components across Rally’s product portfolio.

    • Present the system’s mission, library, and process to other groups, including product managers, content specialists, QA, and other design and development teams throughout the enterprise.
    • Review library docs for editorial quality, consistency, and usefulness.
    • Conduct quarterly one-on-one reviews with team members to identify successes, challenges, perspectives and preferences.
    • Identify and nurture team growth and culture, identifying opportunities for team members to drive and lead system aspects.
  • Product Management
    • Decisively resolve priorities, timing, risks, task importance, and possible breaking changes.
    • Clarify scope to balance delivering minimum useful functionality with properly scalable system design.
    • Identify, monitor, and report on system use across the enterprise.
    • Attend and coordinate with release planning activities to identify library needs.
    • Interview and foster discussions with others using the system.
    • Align research activity to assess efficacy of system concerns.
    • Challenge the system team on what to automate vs manually perform.

Qualifications:

  • 7+ years of experience working with users in a Design, Information Architecture, Frontend Development and/or Product management role.
  • Previous experience as a Designer, Information Architect or Frontend Development that has transitioned to Product Management is a plus.
  • Bachelor's degree required, M.B.A. and background with Computer Science is nice-to-have.
  • Proven ability to work in a dynamic environment focused on continuous product innovation strategically and able to execute methodically.
  • Experience with Agile/Scrum.
  • Strong attention to detail including validated ability to run multiple, challenging priorities at a time.
  • Experience using data and metrics to support hypotheses and conclusions for developing business cases and roadmap priorities – you should be able to clearly communicate data insights to colleagues and partners.
  • Willingness to roll up your sleeves and do whatever is necessary; you should bring a “Feature CEO” mentality every week.
  • Demonstrated ability to understand and discuss technical concepts, schedule tradeoffs and opportunistic new ideas with technical and non-technical employees.
