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 co-leaders of design are incredible - two women with illustrious educational and professional backgrounds, who are both incredibly approachable and care deeply for the team - and the company has fantastic female leadership at the C-level and beyond. Their design team is one of the largest in the city, with 75+ people and growing.

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
