UX Designer - WFH during Covid-19

Starts April 2021
Duration 40 hours/week, 3 months
Status Freelance to full-time
Rate Starting at $66/hour, DOE
Our client, a global financial services company, is looking to add an experienced strategic and hands on UX Designer to their growing team, freelance to full-time (remote to start but eventually onsite in NYC).

The UX Designer will report into the Manager Director who oversees the Digital Customer Experience for the investing / trading side of things for wealth management customers.

The UX Designer will work on UX and UI for web and mobile deliverables aimed at getting the customer to invest with them. For example, if a current customer works with them for banking or has a credit card through them, could they also get them to invest with them?

UX Designer Details:
• The hiring manager cares less about tenure and more about leadership (5+ years of experience is required)
• Designers need to have experience but also be willing to get their hands dirty
• The hiring manager wants to see an example of a complex project in portfolios
• They want to understand how the Designer thinks – show case studies
• Portfolios need to show the WHY behind the work, not just the visuals
• There are no direct reports so experience leading a team is not required but this is still a strategic design lead role
• They believe in mobility and can promote to a people management role if desired
• Experience in fintech/banking is not required; the hiring manager likes to look outside finance
• Collaborate cross functionally with product owners and tech
• Examples of projects could be creating a customer journey or a storyboard in Figma
• There is an existing design lead and some designers on this current project but they also plan 1-2 years out
• Basic design choices have been made but it is UI and UX day today with support from the product designers
• Partner cross-functionally to create digital designs, concepts, stories, customer journeys and turn them into reality
