UX Designer - WFH during Covid-19

Status Freelance, possible full-time
Rate DOE
Our client, a very well known global bank, is looking to hire an experienced UX Designer for a freelance role with the intent to go full-time after roughly 3 months.

Experience designing for finance / banking isn’t required but experience with complex design problems is needed (something more in-depth than a landing page or banner).

Experience working with Figma is a big plus!

UX Designer Details
- Design high fidelity wireframes for a dashboard and design various journeys / the story that connects them
- The work (an app & a website) is client facing, not internal
- Hands on design role, working with a small team of designers but the group is large and there’s lots of teamwork / remote communicating required
- Lots of wireframes but they’re high fidelity and pretty much pixel perfect, end to end design
- Hand off creative to developers (but they’re still in the iterative phase right now for this big project that the larger team is working on - it's all hands on deck!)
- For the larger project, this team will be focusing on how it all fits together and the framework for how to house all of the various aspects of wealth planning

UX Designer Requirements
- Exceptional skills with standard UX software such as Sketch and Invision (this team just started using Figma so experience with it is a huge plus!)
- User-centric design approach that involves rapid testing and iteration of designs
- Ability to explain designs with rationale rooted in user needs and business goals
- Ability to be a UX advocate and communicate with diverse stakeholders
- Ability to use prototyping tools to convey design intent

This is a freelance to full-time UX Designer opportunity that is remote during Covid-19 but eventually onsite, between Jersey City and NYC.
