Rebecca and Joanne

UX Director, fulltime - FinTech product company, agency-influenced culture, great work-life balance

Location: New York, NY
Date Posted: 02-08-2018
We're seeking an Experience Director (UX) for our FinTech client, to help design new product offerings and features in a highly Agile, iterative fashion, both for financial planners, as well as consumers. It's very much the best of both worlds - an agency-influenced approach with a startup culture, and the hefty backing of the large financial institution that acquired them and is eagerly incorporating their innovative influence and products.

Their VP of Design, is someone we've worked with for years, and she's incredible - she's probably one of the most direct, transparent, savvy people you'll ever work alongside, and she instills loyalty in those she's worked with and have followed her to her current role. Indeed, the company has fantastic female leadership at the C-level and beyond. 

You'll be working with the talented Group Experience Director within their large UX team, to help lead and design new product offerings and features in a highly Agile, iterative fashion for both consumers, and for financial planners. If you're a great presenter and a thought leader in the user-centered-design field, all the better - we'd love to know about that!
You’ll help recruit, onboard, mentor, and manage UX designers, and help drive the future of multiple digital products. As a thought leader, you’ll help plan and drive the short-, medium, and long-term future of the product, including high-level vision. You have the polish and client-facing chops to present and sell-in concepts to internal high-level stakeholders, and will collaborate with other design directors and leadership across the company. You'll enjoy excellent benefits and very reasonable work/life balance.
  • 7+ years of UX experience designing large-scale digital experiences and applications
  • Experience working closely with all levels of UX, and playing well with cross-discipline collaborators (Visual, Copy, Dev, Product, Research)
  • A proven history of hiring, mentoring, growing junior designers while ensuring every interaction is simple, intuitive, and supports the product vision
  • Ability to provide clear creative direction as well as timely and prescriptive feedback on work as well as how to improve the design process for the company as a whole.
  • A track record of innnovative product design, including responsive, mobile web, and native app design
  • A passion for being on top of new platforms and technologies.
  • Willingness to roll up your sleeves and contribute to hands-on UX design yourself - you still love creating, not just managing
  • A passion for being on top of new platforms and technologies, with an appetite for learning
  • A love of data
Must have:
  • Portfolio of your work, including detailed case studies walking through your process, and design decisions
