Job Description:

Our large fin-tech client located in Austin is seeking a UX/UI Designer for a longterm contract assignment. This position is onsite with some remote flex. Full-time, contract



We will be redesigning our Help Center to be more Workflow oriented with new automated functionality. This re-imagining of the service experience will lead to smoother interactions, higher containment, and more satisfied customers.

Compass UX Overhaul: The Compass (internal Teammate experience) is undergoing a UX overhaul, moving from a static approach where information must be sought out to a more intuitive and contextual experience. When teammates are utilizing the tool they will have key information about the customer easily view-able (without any clicks) and will have features such as elastic search and intent prediction, to aid them in quickly finding the information they need to complete the call/chat. The new functionality being built will provide User Interface Design services for this new Compass UI. The UI that teammates interact with will be completely re-imagined to provide a more intuitive and helpful experience. We expect this project to run at least

through year end (December 31, 2020) as we work to make changes to the Compass UI. This work will be the foundation of the future state teammate experience and will provide a UX framework which can be leveraged in the years to come.



The new Bot and Messaging platform requires a User Experience designer to focus on the build and roll-out. The consultant will create new features and a new, re-imagined, experience for customers that interact with us via the bot whether it be on the website, mobile app, mobile web, or Social Media.
