Freelance Senior / Lead Visual UI Designer, 3+ months onsite @ FinTech co with agency culture and startup roots

Location: New York, NY
Date Posted: 10-04-2018
Hello! We're seeking a freelance Sr or Lead Visual UI Designer for our startup-turned-FinTech/InsureTech mammoth, to help design new product offerings and features in a highly Agile, iterative fashion, for their millions of end users across the nation (the impact-quotient is high!).

Gig starts as soon as possible, and lasts 3 months minimum. Onsite, NYC location. May turn into a fulltime role for the right candidate if good mutual fit, but not a guarantee.

It's very much the best of both worlds - an agency-esque approach with a startup-influenced culture, and the hefty backing of the large financial & insurance institution that acquired them and is eagerly incorporating their innovative influence and products. They've done the impressive job of not becoming a production house for the mothership, but rather, taking their hands and leading them into the future with innovation, best practices with design process and approaches, and fabulous design itself.

They love agency-background people (not exclusively), so it's a great opportunity for someone with agency experience who wants to break into client-side work.

Tools are for financial planners, field agents who basically run their books of business like they're running their own mini-companies, internal customer service call center reps, and other professionals.

Their co-heads of design are incredible women with impeccable backgrounds and the respect of the team. Indeed, the company has fantastic female leadership at every level - including the founder, the C-suite, the design department, and beyond.

  • 4+ years of Visual UI experience designing large-scale digital experiences and applications.
  • Very hands-on - and, at the same time, strategic and high-level thinking skills are in play here, too
  • A proven track record of product design, including responsive, mobile web, and native app design, and ability to work with cross-functional teams.
  • Proven ability to think through complex features and flows, balance user needs and business needs, and make the complex feel simple to users.
  • Extensive knowledge of best in class design patterns and design systems across a variety of platforms.
  • Adept with standard design and prototyping tools, such as Photoshop, Sketch, Illustrator, InVision and anything else needed to get the job done.
  • Ability to provide clear project direction as well as timely and prescriptive feedback on work.
  • A passion for being on top of new platforms and technologies.
  • Must have a book, preferably with at least 2-3 case studies, laid out in an attractive, intuitive way.
