The UX Designer will create experiences that impact millions of people and small businesses who send and request money every day. This team works on crypto, Zelle and even some ?tented? secret projects for new payments products!

Payments/finance experience is not required as long as you?re fascinated by the inner workings of paying for stuff and have experience applying research findings to your design. This role partners with a robust research team but experience working with research and then talking through how a design solution was landed upon is key.

The ability to take designs from early concept to detailed delivery is required, along with a passion for creating simple, beautiful solutions to complex problems.

Payments UX Designer Duties:
? Lead design driven programs through the discovery to build phases in collaboration with Product and Engineering
? Map end to end customer experiences for payment products exposing the many non-digital moments which makes up the true customer experience
? Develop web/mobile user experiences based on data and user research which you?ll take all the way into production leveraging the existing Design System
? Work with engineers to ensure accurate creation and deployment of your work is executed
? Participate in user research by collaborating with researchers in hypothesis development as well as the practical creation of artifacts needed for both exploratory and evaluative approaches
? Keep up-to-date with trends, techniques, and software

Midlevel Payments UX Designer Qualifications:
? 6+ years of experience designing end-to-end web and mobile customer experiences solutions and delivering them to market
? A portfolio that demonstrates your design-thinking approach and delivery of user-centered product solutions
? Experience in supporting user researchers with the artifacts needed for studies that contribute to your work
? Effective communication of design rationale and ability to defend your solutions
? Awareness and practical understanding of current technologies, platforms, and design trends
? Understanding of how design translates to code; skilled at partnering with scrum teams to realize the design vision
? Experience developing solutions based on existing design systems or component libraries, and contributing to them
? Skillful at applying different design tools in creating user flows, storyboards, and prototypes to explore concepts and tell the story behind the design
? Receptive to feedback and able to rapidly iterate, concept, and prototype solutions

What does a day to day look like???
o Next generation products!
o Also?Zelle, bill pay,?pay?products?etc.?some are ?tented? and secret??
o Working with cryptocurrency and NFTs etc.?

Must Haves:?
o Want to see the actual process ? not the final screen?
o How do you talk through your designs and how did you land on a solution???
o Experience working w/ research ? designing for the end user, the customer?
o Show how they applied information from the researchers to their designs??
they have to see interaction and UX based work - marketing digital designers won't suffice

This is a long-term freelance Midlevel Payments UX Designer opportunity with the potential to extend, likely eventually converting to full-time. This isn't a fully remote role; the expectation is onsite 2-3 days a week in NYC.
