We are looking for a UX Design Director to join our team for a potentially long term project. Our partner, a notable U.S. financial institution, has engaged Runyon to stand up a new, independent digital bank as a corporate venture. The proposed banking venture will focus on the middle market. Across three design phases, the project will span discovery through beta launch. Target launch for Phase I of the project is February 6 and will span eight weeks, with possible continuation of the project up to 18 months. This is a remote-friendly position.
A candidate in this role will lead the creation of customer-centered concepts, prototypes, and front end designs. They will have deep empathy for user needs and behaviors with a solid understanding of how to leverage design research. They understand how to express business model, brand, and growth strategy within the user flows they shape. For earlier explorations they are proficient at clearing low-fidelity, sketch level concepts for research; for later phases, they are skilled in Figma and high-fidelity design all the way to production; and, they have a passion for details and design systems. This team member will be working under a Partner and a Project Lead and collaborating with multidisciplinary teams to scope, design, concept test and deliver innovative solutions.
