Everyone is welcome at Handshake. We know diverse teams build better products and we are committed to creating an inclusive culture built on a foundation of respect for all individuals.

Design at Handshake

At Handshake we create opportunities for all students and recent graduates to have equal access to meaningful jobs and internships, and we believe design plays a crucial role in the pursuit of this mission. Under the umbrella of our Chief Design Officer, we are a unified team of product designers, content designers, user experience researchers, brand designers, and design ops folks, all working collaboratively to help students, employers, and career centers.

We take a student-first approach to how we design and build products, and we strive to deeply understand our users and their true goals. We believe that great products and experiences are made great by the combination of how they work and how they look. One without the other is not enough, and while we're not perfect, we strive to excel in both and are committed to going the extra mile.

Great products are built by teams — and teams are built by people who communicate and collaborate well. A culture of openness, honesty, and the ability to provide and receive constructive feedback is important to us.

We also believe that great teams are inclusive. Being surrounded by a diversity of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives brings out the best in everyone, and leads to higher quality products and experiences.

  • Establish the structure and strategy towards a robust system library, while working closely with the engineering team to align, execute, and publish the system across the product and company. 

  • Work in a methodical way to launch pilot experiences within mobile and web products, and help define the success measurement to be held accountable against. 

  • Work closely with the brand team to establish a design system that reflects the brand and values of Handshake, visually and interactively. 

  • Create processes and pathways for Designers and Engineers to contribute to the design system.

  • Work with Product Designers to improve existing as well as create new components and styles across Handshake products.

  • Empower teams across the company to adopt and contribute to the design system.
