Our client, a global financial services company, is looking to hire two UX Designers, who have experience from a product led environment, for a long-term freelance role with the potential to extend and possible full-time conversion.

The goal is to streamline their operational processes so one example of a project that the UX Product Designers will work on is improving the journey for a first time user of the wholesale payments system.

UX Designer Details:
• The end users of the products are businesses but B2B or B2C experience is fine either way since they also have internal clients - knowledge of lean UX and understanding the user story are most important
