CIB – Sr. UI & Interaction Designer, Associate at JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. (New York, NY)

JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A.

J.P. Morgan’s new program, AreaX, is charged with taking concepts to working prototypes within six to 12 weeks sprints, by re-thinking processes across the Corporate & Investment Bank (CIB).

Increasingly, we want to be at the forefront of new and innovative technologies whilst also staying relevant to our ever changing client needs. Ideating, designing and developing accelerators within AreaX help get ideas to market quicker.

A short development timeframe requires the team to be strategic and precise when deciding whether to mature a product or stand down. In addition to the overall feasibility of the idea, we consider data points such as long-term product strategy, monetization opportunities and current market trends.

We are seeking a hybrid UI & Interaction Designer who is passionate about their work, nimble, fast and has an eye for detail. You’ll take on complex tasks and transform them into intuitive, accessible and easy-to-use designs.

We rely heavily on collaboration in what can be an intense and fast paced environment. Experts from our various fields in product management, design and development must all combine their knowledge and expertise within short spaces of time to not only answer a brief, but do it effectively.

Only high quality and strategically led outputs ever make it into the accelerator – which can be a challenge even on regular project timelines.
