A Design Systems Ops is a person who is part of a design systems team, who needs to get into the designers’ shoes, and have a feel for what they are trying to conceptualize. At the same time, Design Systems Ops need to understand the engineering requirements and define methods that will help shipping and scaling the Design System. In a way, a Design Systems Ops is the translator between these two worlds.
… best products are built by teams with great communication bridges between designers and engineers. Whether you’re one or the other, at the end of the day… we’re all shipping software. When a Design System is invited to the party, communication is even better.
