Our client, a very well-known global bank, is looking to hire an experienced UX Product Designer for a freelance role with the intent to go full time after roughly 3 months, remote to start. This is a brand new role for their growing digital team!

An interest in or experience with complex enterprise applications is required; the ideal UX Designer is comfortable solving challenging problems with complex systems that ultimately have a positive, tangible impact. For example, reducing clicks from 6 to 2 through better design actually translates to thousands of dollars saved!

Why is this role exciting? The UX Designer will contribute to tactical and strategic aspects of product design and be able to bring their ideas to life for how to design a better future!

UX Product Designer Details:
- Focus is on complex, internal enterprise applications concentrated in the task management and workflow space
- This work is driving a lot of the internal operations that teams do globally to help serve their clients (for example, reducing the number of clicks and improving the workflow of a new mortgage request, an address change or a new investment account)
- Must be comfortable working with strong engineers and developers / internal teams
- Comfortable tackling problems in an agile way
- Partner closely with development teams and product owners to transform the organization
- Manage relationships across teams – many different product owners, scrum teams and tech leads
- The larger team is ~20 people but work day to day with the ~8 person product design team
- Operate outside of well-established design system, when appropriate/necessary
- Qualified candidates are UX minded and strong interaction designers and communicators to present work
- Must show strong visual design in portfolio
- Create orderly and elegant prototypes, leverage the existing design system occasionally

This is a freelance to full-time UX Product Designer opportunity that is remote during Covid-19 but eventually onsite in Jersey City (very easily commutable by multiple forms of public transportation).
