UX Product Designer - WFH during Covid-19

Starts Late September; interviews starting week of 9/14
Duration 6 months, 40 hours/week
Status Freelance to full-time
Rate DOE
Our client, a global financial company, needs a UX Product Designer to join their team for at least 6 months, with a strong likelihood of extension or full-time conversion (remote during covid and eventually onsite in NYC).

The hiring manager is looking to see strong case studies in a portfolio and an understanding of the UX process is needed but the role has a focus on UI (30% UX vs. 70% UI).

UX Product Designer Details:
- At least 3 years of UX/UI experience is required
- Follow engagement model and speak well to it to the business teams
- Must understand the full UX process: discovery, iterating on design and delivering with the product teams
- Strong visual design skills are important
- Adhere to style guides, asset libraries and design standard
- Create finished assets and mockups
- Knowledge of pushing an end to end product is important (for example, the Designer must be comfortable with the end to end experience: demos to senior leadership, etc.)
- Designs are handed off to the development team so there's no hands on coding but knowledge of code and how to speak to it is helpful (a plus but not a deal breaker)
- High comfort level with the UX discovery phase
- There is a close connection to senior leadership

This team is working on 5 major projects right now, so the UX Product Designer will help facilitate these projects, some of which include:
- An onboarding tool for middle market and complex banking clients
- Fraud prevention tools
- Tools to help customers transition from their current bank to our client's bank
- An internal dashboard/hub that they're developing into bring also an external tool
