If your fulltime responsibility is creating/ maintaining/ implementing a design system, what made you choose it over other verticals in the design domain?

It's the perfect intersection of design and code for me. Scaling design is a hard and fun challenge that can range from code problems through to UX and into other areas too.

+1 with Dan's comment. I think it's a challenging responsibility.

My FT responsibility is building and maintaining a design system for a large org, and I chose it because I'm more of a systems thinker than a one-off thinker. I like thinking through modularity more than specific problems. I also like being on the forefront of the industry and find that design systems tooling is undergoing rapid change in a way that doesn't effect the consumers of a design system (other designers) as much.
