Brad Bice Resume

Professional history & focus

I've been a web design professional since 2004, working with small and large businesses on e-commerce platforms, SaaS products, design systems, and spanning multiple roles from frontend developer to product designer and team manager. I thrive in environments where the connection between designer and developer is crucial.

My focus includes design systems, cross-functional team communication and alignment, and CSS design.

Recent experience

Principal Product Designer, Design System

Pluralsight
Exiting from Cars.com, I transitioned to an individual contributor role with Pluralsight to focus primarily on design system work. In this role I was solely (until recently) responsible for standing up the design and collaboration efforts for our Pando Design System. This was a complete rewrite from the ground up of a design system for Pluralsight, and also as an open source and platform agnostic system for anyone to use.

Senior Manager of Product Design

Cars.com
I transitioned to Senior Manager of Product Design in October 2021, where I managed a team of Senior and Principal Product Designers, as well as our design system. Acting as mission lead for a variety of initiatives, my responsibilities also ranged from team building and collaboration with cross-functional colleagues, to presiding over our design tools and services.

Design Manager

Cars.com
Initially hired as a Visual Designer, later transitioned to Senior Product Designer, and then given my own team to focus on creating an internal design system. Duties included overseeing and leading design system research, development, integration and architecture. Led a team of two in standing up the Spark Design System which powers Cars.com visual design consumer-facing and internal products.
