Pr. Associate, Experience Design

As a UX Product Designer on the Commercial Bank Design team, you will work closely with other designers, strategists, developers, product managers, and business stakeholders to practice human-centered software design.

About the Role:

Product Designers at Capital One have a passion for solving complex problems. They are human-centered in their approach to design and feel comfortable advocating for user needs. They are curious and demonstrate a passion for learning. They are capable of generating ideas and prototyping concepts that are anchored in research insights, subject knowledge, technology requirements, and business goals. They have an exuberant passion for the power of strategic design and an “anything is possible” mindset. They take pride in their work and yet they have a humble approach. They are able to contribute as a designer from end-to-end on projects, which means they are comfortable as researchers, data scientists, strategists, and designers. They employ design thinking methods to uncover insights that help inform design decisions. They are excellent communicators and feel comfortable presenting their design decisions in front of colleagues and stakeholders.

Commercial banking is ripe for innovation. Internal systems could benefit from greater efficiency and collaboration and in the long-term, from artificial intelligence. Externally there are very few digital touchpoints for commercial banking clients so there’s extensive opportunity for design to improve industry practices. The services and processes are complex so we’re looking for highly qualified designers who enjoy serious problem solving and creating simple, humane, ingenious solutions.

In this role, you will:

  • A typical day might include facilitating a workshop to integrate Lean UX into a project, reviewing features with a project team, working on interaction design or conducting research with a customer.

  • Collaborate with business analysts, product managers, developers and design teams on research activities, strategy sessions, ideation, design, and testing of new product concepts

  • Build empathy and be an advocate for our customers through participation in human-centered research and design

  • Translate user needs, style guides, and requirements into elegant solutions for complex problems

  • Leverage analytics tools to measure success, present opportunities, and support decision-making

  • Utilize Lean and Agile methodologies

  • Present research findings and design concepts to designers and product partners

  • Be a leader and mentor; you’ll challenge, grow and mentor designers and contribute to fostering a collaborative team spirit.

Our NYC office is located downtown. The amenities are more startup than financial services: you’ll find ping-pong, foosball, cold brew coffee on tap, and Aeron chairs. Our seating is open-landscape to encourage collaboration but with a limited number of seats in any one area so it never gets too loud, plus plenty of nooks and rooms to escape to when you need to focus.

Basic Qualifications:

  • At least 3 years of experience with user experience (UX) design

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Master’s Degree in Design

  • 7+ years of experience with user experience (UX) design

  • 7+ years of experience designing digital products or omni-channel services

  • 3+ years of experience with Information Architecture (IA)

  • 3+ years of experience creating prototypes

  • Front-End Development knowledge
