Our client, a global financial services company, is looking to hire a UX / Product Designer who is interested simplifying complex systems. This will start out as a 4 month contract role with the potential to extend or convert to full-time, fully remote to start but ideally eventually onsite in NYC.

What are the top 3 things the hiring manager is looking to see in this UX Designer?
1. Financial services experience is not required but at least a curiosity around it is needed
2. Experience with data heavy, complex interaction (not visual) design since this is enterprise software work w/ data grids & forms
3. Collaboration skills w/ the larger design team (this is a team of 10, within a team of 30 that is part of a larger global 200 person design team)

There is a design system in place already so while the final output is high fidelity, interactive screen designs it's still data heavy complex application design for wholesale payments systems.
