From day 1 the UX Product Designer must be able to be onsite at their NYC office 2-3 days a week (this team has a rotating schedule of Mondays/Tuesdays and every other Friday onsite and Wednesdays/Thursdays and every other Friday remote).

Qualified UX Product Designers must be able to design complex workflows / enterprise applications for wealth advisor tools or client facing tools for online investing (not checking accounts etc.).

• This isn’t UX light – experience only on marketing landing pages, for example, isn’t enough
• Agency experience, eComm and/or a fintech background is helpful but not required
• The hiring manager requires an online (not PDF) portfolio
• A Macbook will be provided

UX Product Designer Qualifications:
• 2+ years’ experience working in a professional capacity as User Experience Designer working on complex enterprise applications
• Bachelor’s Degree in a design-related field
