Visual designer in the Nordic design systems teamSchibsted
Schibsted's digital marketplaces have unique and strong positions as market leaders, with Tori and Oikotie in Finland, Bilbasen and DBA in Denmark, FINN in Norway and Blocket in Sweden. Together we make up Nordic Marketplaces in Schibsted, collectively connecting millions of buyers and sellers every month.
Your role in Nordic marketplaces
We are on a journey to expand our design system from one marketplace to creating a world class multi-brand design system that supports all our brands. To be able to succeed with this we need design representation in all our 4 countries to make sure that the needs of each marketplace are taken into account. We are therefore looking for a visual designer to join our newly created Nordic design systems team representing Finland.
Your most important responsibility will be to shape the digital brand experience of Tori and Oikotie - making sure that the brand vision is met to the extent that it’s possible within the design system.
You will work closely with our Design systems lead, Product manager, frontend developers and other product and visual designers from Sweden, Denmark and Norway. Together we shape the digital experiences of our brands. We will create and document components, tokens, libraries and patterns to help create a consistent UI and an efficient product development in all our brands.
What you'll do
Taking an active role in shaping the digital brand experience for Tori and Oikotie. Collaborating with marketing departments to ensure that digital brand decisions align with overall brand visions. This collaboration is key to creating cohesive and effective designs that support the broader goals and values of the brands.

Who are you?
We are looking for an experienced visual designer with top class collaboration skills. To succeed and excel in this role you need to be a true systems thinker that understands the strengths with having and maintaining a system, but also the compromises that comes with it. You have the ability to look beyond features and flows to be able to create a system that truly supports the entire organization - but at the same time you are able to zoom in on details when there is a need for it.
We hope that you see the value in an inclusive design process since collaboration with product designers in the organization is key to adaption. We believe in a transparent and generous team environment - and we hope that you do too.
This role requires that you can communicate confidently with designers and other creatives to be able to drive the UI vision forward within the different brand’s you represent. It’s important to us that you are comfortable with taking the lead and pushing forward when you see the need for it.
