We’re looking for a UX/UI Designer to join us in shaping this experience, and work closely with other designers, strategists, developers, product managers, researchers, and business analysts to further our understanding of how to design the best solutions for our customers.

A craftsperson. You obsess over things like taps, content and form fields to create experiences, services and products that are deeply satisfying.

You’re able to cut through the noise to understand what’s important and inspire that clarity in others. You’ll translate user needs, style guides, and requirements into elegant solutions for complex problems.
A systems thinker. As you translate user needs and requirements into elegant solutions for complex problems, you’re not just thinking about the task at hand but also about how your design choices scale and fit within larger established systems and patterns.
A highly competent implementor. You are proficient using tools like Figma or Sketch, and are able to execute with both speed and quality. You’ll be creating experience prototypes at various levels of fidelity to articulate and test user flows, UI design, and/or UI animation.

You’ll perform research activities, strategy sessions, ideation, design, and testing of new product concepts. You’ll be leading workshops to facilitate co-creation, alignment, and insight of core customer needs.
Passionate. You are driven to design beautiful experiences that impact people’s lives. You make it your business to know as much as you can about the people you are designing for and stay up-to-date on the latest design trends and techniques.
Have a can-do attitude. You’re proactive and excited to produce awesome work. No task is too small or large for you. You are able to work alone or with partners to problem solve and develop clear action and execution plans for a task, keeping your manager informed of progress. You display a positive attitude and are excited to share your ideas with the team as well as listen to those of others.
A successful juggler. You don’t get overwhelmed or flustered easily. You’re able to keep track of multiple projects at once, manage your time efficiently and appropriately communicate scheduling with your manager and the broader team.
A storyteller. You’re able to develop clear and persuasive stories about your work that you share with a wide range of audiences, including business partners and stakeholders.
