-------- UX ----------

Director of Design (UX or Visual UI background) - open to Sr Leads looking for step up
@ Big Data startup with major funding from big name places
Our well-funded, pre-IPO startup in the Big Data space is seeking a fulltime Director of Design, and they're open to Senior Leads with some management experience of 3-4 direct reports, who's ready for a step up.
You’re an inspiring design leader who likes to totally nerd out on wrangling Big Data to improve the world we live in. You've got zero ego and don't mind jumping in, hands-on-like, and you also shine when providing nurturing, inspiring direction to your team, and doubling it in size this year. And you care deeply about that mission, because you care deeply about our world, and all the living things in it. Empathy drives you. Must have complex product/UX design work, enterprise software + big data work preferred, and working with large enterprise clients is also a big plus.

UX Designer @ mobile data tech startup, fulltime
One billion users can't be wrong, nor can Crains when they call our client one of the "Top 20 Places to Work in NYC". Fun yet brainy mobile data tech startup with CTO clients from marquis global companies.
Founders sold their last startup for gazillions of dollars so this isn't their first time at the rodeo.
You'll be one half of a team of two, along with their whipsmart Director of UX. You love to dig into deep, complex problems, have some B2B + Enterprise software / SaaS work experience, preferably, and you're a master wireframer and sitemap maker. Research isn't a major focus and you're cool doing on the fly.

UX Lead @ a recently acquired FinTech startup
Fulltime, possibly open to Temp to Perm
Strong female leadership at C-level and beyond, mixed with a rockin' startup culture - all that, and you get to work with a wide variety of user sets - the public, big banker types, and all sorts in between.
Agency experience and client-facing experience is great. You'll really get to hone your presentation skills here.
Their VP of Design is someone we've worked with for years, and she's incredible + super transparent + a kick in the saddle.

Mid + Sr level UX Designers @ FinTech startup (see above)
Fulltime (preferred) or Temp to Perm
Hands on, agency backgrounds preferred but flexible, and must have worked on sweeping aspects of large-scale, complex projects, not just little bits of bigger projects. Work on your presentation skills and work in a highly dynamic Agile environment with decidedly sane hours. They love your agency background but DON'T have the agency late nights.

-------- PRODUCT DESIGN  ----------

Product Designer - Inspiration sites + apps // at lifestyle + media company that's "gone product" - *awesome* leadership!
Create a x-platorm digital destination that inspires, delights, and conjures whimsy for millions of couples going through the happiest (and most complex) times in their lives! Tons of ability to concept from scratch, and lots of opportunities to include User Generated Content, video, "street fashion", and the like.
Must have Product Design geared book (not just UX work) with a lifestyle slant, and the ability to complete pixel-perfect, complex tools from scratch, and work in a highly Agile fashion with Devs, Product Managers, and other Product Designers. User research background is a plus but they will train if needed.
Some of the best leadership on the planet in a place that highly values continued learning, education, mentorship programs. Unlimited PTO and other nice perks.

Visual / Product Design Lead @ Scandinavian design firm doing high-end service design and x-platform projects
Be part of a dynamic global community as a fulltime VISUAL / PRODUCT DESIGN LEAD, doing elegant, complex service design + product design work across platforms and industries. Startup, 1+ year old Brooklyn studio that's moved into a brand new space, with Dev embedded in the team - they think up ideas around "What's the dashboard of the car of the future look like?" and then they build it in-house.
Not a management position but opp's to mentor and grow into it later.
Highly Agile, iterative, VERY collaborative. Thoughtful, fun, international culture that's highly connected and engage in knowledge-sharing often. Global retreat once a year (was in Italy last year).
The design "buck will stop with you" on projects you run concurrently.

-------- VISUAL / UI  ----------

Mid + Sr Visual UI Designers @ a recently acquired FinTech startup
Fulltime preferred; also open to Temp to Perm.
You'll be helping design new product offerings across platforms and devices in a highly Agile, iterative fashion, for both the "regular guy/gal" user (with a particular bent on the millennial set), and for financial planners.
Must have 3+ years experience and be able to demonstrate visual problem-solving, with an ability to solve for interactive challenges such as navigation elements, data visualizations, and app design.
