Our client, a global financial institution, is looking to hire an experienced UX Designer for 4 months, freelance to full-time. The position will likely be work from home for the rest of 2020, however the plan is to eventually return to the office in Hudson County (easily commutable by public transit).

This is a hands on UX Designer role for unique and innovative financial digital products, including trading and advice platforms. Experience with advanced enterprise use cases is huge.

Knowledge of financial services is a huge help; it's not required but even just strong personal investing experience will suffice.

How did you go about attacking a complex business problem through a design solution? The hiring manager wants to see a portfolio that demonstrates an understanding of the user journey and thought process.

The UX Designer will be working on web-based applications that are strung together in an ecosystem with individual HTML5 apps that are being designed.

UX Designer Responsibilities:
• Interpret multidimensional business requirements and understand what the requirement is driving towards
• Enterprise audience: design to create more engaging experiences to merge client and advisor views in some points of the process
• Find creative ways to drill down into the details of data grids and data tables for information dense applications
• Prototyping is important but mainly the hiring manager wants someone who can digest their complex ideas
• Distill complicated problems into simple and elegant solutions
• Accurately make decisions that guide the product direction with little information
• Research and look for opportunities to solve problems in unusual and innovative ways

UX Designer Requirements:
• A visual design background is a bonus and helpful but not required, the role is mainly UX
• At least 3 years of design experience
• Ability to deliver solutions (research findings, design concepts, content) and participate in critique process to improve design acceptance
• Develop critical thinking through iteration and design review
• Understanding of application of design systems, experience with Sketch, InVision (they're starting to imgrate everything to Figma so experience with it is a plus)
• Understanding of what makes an experience good or bad is critical by thinking through user problems, find reasonable solutions, mock them up in detail, and work with engineers to build them

This is a 4 month freelance UX role based in NJ with a strong likelihood for extension, if not conversion to full-time!
