Posted Last Month

Our client, a Leading Global Financial firm seeks a UX Designer to support its small, but quickly growing, UX team. Looking for a "UX Generalist" to help build products that improve workflows for investment bankers and attract B2B prospect clients.

Partnering with our business leads, product and tech teams, Design focuses on creating and refining the products and services that are critical to the users who keep us at the top of the industry. These users, such as Traders, Analysts, Portfolio Managers, and Bankers have complex, fast-paced, informationally overloaded jobs, within an already complex industry. And so the tools we design must add value and minimize complexity.

To do our job well, we utilize creative design-led methods to help us break through the industry jargon and find insights others can’t. Through this, we are elevating the role of ‘Design’ beyond solving the complex design problems but also as a catalyst for product and service innovation.

The ideal candidate is, above all, a maker and enjoys balancing craft with an academic interest in theory and science of Interaction Design, HCI, and human-centered design methodologies. In addition, candidates should have the following skills and interests:

• Can confidently translate business problems and requirements into compelling UI’s.
• Enjoys designing highly functional user experiences
