Our client, a global financial institution, is looking to hire a UX Designer for a freelance to full-time position, remote to start but eventually onsite (commutable either to Hudson County or NYC).

The UX Designer will work as a valued member of a multidisciplinary design team and be involved in complex projects for banking clients and participate in user research and design planning to respond to feedback.

In addition to primary project work, the UX Designer will contribute to design systems such as the pattern library, visual design library, and motion library.

The UX Designer will present their work to diverse stakeholders and the broader technology organization.

The hiring manager is less interested in the pixel and is looking for thinkers; it's still a design first role but candidates must put thoughtful decisions behind their designs, using data.

This UX Designer role requires a wide variety of strengths and capabilities, including:
• Bachelor's degree or equivalent experience
• At least 1 year of professional UX experience
• Exceptional skills with standard UX software such as Figma
• Experience with generative and evaluative research methods, motion design or video or an interest in learning those skills
• User-centric design approach that involves rapid testing and iteration of designs
• Understanding of how design translates to code
• Ability to use prototyping tools to convey design intent
• Demonstrated ability to handle multiple priorities on tight deadlines without compromising quality
• Understanding of accessibility and the ability to apply that to designs (ADA)
• The ability to articulate the value of UX and the rationale behind your research process and design decisions
• Be a design partner in both the discovery and delivery of product solutions

This is a freelance to full-time UX Designer opportunity remote to start but eventually onsite in NYC or Northern NJ.
