We are currently looking for a UX Designer for a large financial services client in San Francisco. Great opportunity for growth, learning and a chance to work with a variety of products, not just one! This work is for someone who likes variety and isn't looking to focus on one product! Someone who has drive and initiative and wants to make a name for themselves!
Ideal candidate will have or want the following in their next opportunity:
• Working with design system that goes across the entire product suite, engaging with different products and teams, not doing a specific thing (product, feature. etc.)
• Role is more of a generalist, being able to handle multiple competing needs from different groups and roll that into a fundamental design pattern/asset that can be applied to multiple channels and meet business needs
• Will work with product designers to help them apply the design systems correctly and use correctly
• Large amount of growth internally. Create consistency across all channels that the customers hit.
• Some experience working within larger teams/company.
For people that get bored super easy, this role will always have something new or engaging that needs to get done. Doesn't keep you heads down for a year on one feature or product. You will be jumping around and seeing what's interesting and provide immediate value to organization.
