Job Description

The Carbon Design System is IBM's open-source design system for products and experiences. Taking the IBM Design Language as our foundation, Carbon is working code, design tools and resources, and guidelines. All serving, and served by, a vibrant community of contributors.

As IBM's official design system, Carbon serves a wide range of designers and developers. We help anyone who's building digital products and experiences. Carbon improves the consistency and quality of IBM's user experiences. It makes the design and development process more efficient. It establishes a shared vocabulary between design and developer. And it provides clear guidance around design and development best practice.
