Senior UX Designer Details
The Merchant Services work (credit card acceptance point of sale) is more complex than UX for most consumer experiences
This role focuses on point of sale and how merchants accept credit cards etc. (working on the platform that the small business owner would use to log in and manage various transactions or disputes etc.)
It deals with managing the design for mass amounts of transactions or reconciliations
At least 5 years of UX experience is required (financial services exp. is not required)
Experience acting as the design lead on a project is required
They have strong stakeholders and need equally as strong design leaders
The ability to manage the friction and help stakeholders understand the design process knowing when to say no and when to push back is key
The hiring manager looks to see a candidates design process in their portfolio how did they go about solving a problem and are they clear in the delivery of their message?
This is NOT an information architecture role but rather hands on UX design, working collaboratively with internal stakeholders and the larger team
