The Hired Guns are seeking a Junior Product Designer, UX / UI for a leading investment management firm that’s undertaking a massive, end-to-end transformation of their consumer-facing digital experiences. As an up-and-coming design / UX hybrid, you’ll work on fascinating design projects that will improve the investing experience for millions of individuals and small businesses.
The Nitty Gritty
The backstory on the organization and why they need to hire you!
As Junior Product Designer, UX / UI, you’ll have an exciting opportunity to be an integral part of a major evolution for this company. Your work will be a true balance of UX design (wireframes, journey maps, process flows, and other techniques) and design of the UI itself. With an approach to design that’s customer-centric, KPI-focused, data-driven, and Agile, you’ll achieve superior results on digital initiatives such as interactive advertising landing pages, new digital product launches, transactional portals and portfolio management tools for both responsive web and native app.
As a valuable member of the design team, you’ll help transform all customer-facing websites, mobile applications, and other interactive experiences. You’ll work within and help enhance a scalable design system and extensible UI standards, follow UX best practices, and collaborate closely with colleagues in IT, editorial, product management, and marketing.
How you’ll know if you’re a fit…
With three or more years of digital product design and UX / UI design experience, you’ve done an enormous number of meaningful interface design projects for major brands, as evidenced by a portfolio replete with high-quality examples of responsive web, mobile and tablet app design. Experience in finance is helpful, but not necessary, but you must be flat-out fantastic at designing simple and elegant solutions for complex interactions. An agency pedigree is welcome for its exposure to a broad range of challenges and solutions.
You’ve worked in environments that followed design thinking, lean UX, and Agile methodologies. You have an impressive degree of technical savvy: you know your way around native app design (both iOS and Android) and have a keen understanding of their capabilities and limitations. You’re adept with Sketch, Principal, Zeplin, and prototyping tools such as InVision, Framer, or Figma, and have a solid knowledge of micro-interaction design and motion graphics.
You have the ideal personality for this role if you’re a self-starter and team player who loves the energy of working with a collaborative team of experts. No prima donna, you don’t let your design ego get in the way of the best solution.
The Inside Skinny
Why you should quit your job right now and join this organization!
You’ll be working as a pivotal part of a lean Agile team leading a complete 180-degree digital transformation. Because the team is small, there’s no silo. One day will rarely look the same as the last and once you’re done, you’ll have a wealth of design accomplishments you’ll be proud to put in your portfolio.
