Our client, a well-known challenger brand in the financial space, is looking for a freelance UI /UX Designer to join their team 40 hours/week, at least through Q1 2022 but with the potential to turn full-time.

Working onsite 2-3 days a week is preferable but not a deal breaker (Hudson County, easily commutable).

The UI / UX Designer will report into the Senior Director, Digital Experience and Performance and work alongside a Front End Developer, Software Engineer, and a UX Designer.

The UI / UX Designer will help them establish the visual framework that needs to be in place and elevate their current presence on the web.

The ability to leverage UX skills to inform the UI design process is key to success in the role. They're in the process now of doing some qualitative and quantitative research.

UI / UX Designer Responsibilities:
- creating visual elements that contribute to the elevation of the company's website and makes the website structurally cohesive
- lead the internal discussion around the UI piece
- help them clean up the digital clutter and organize the format
- utilizing mock ups and wireframes to execute the design of the website
- creating storyboards to show the flow of the website
- utilizing UX knowledge to understand how the architecture of a website works
- working in the Adobe Creative Suite and Azure to complete all projects

UI / UX Designer Qualifications:
- 4+ years of UI design experience and a variety of strong digital portfolio samples
- finance/eComm experience is desired but not required
- a strong understanding of the digital design UI framework is required
- proficient knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite and Azure
- a great collaborator who works well with others

Fully remote is an option but long-term it's tougher for full-time conversion, if that's the Designer's ultimate goal.
