Visual Design Lead for Interactive Products

JP Morgan Corporate Investment Bank, CIB-Wide Product Design Team

New York City

We are looking for an experienced visual designer to join our UX practice within our Product Design group. The broader team provides Product Management and Product Design leadership for our most critical client-facing applications that provide users with the capabilities to evaluate, trade, and keep track of any of our equity or fixed income investment vehicles. We are looking for excited individuals to help create products that can improve peoples’ lives (at work) and achieve clear business goals. Our users have complex, fast-paced, informationally overloaded jobs (within an already complex industry) and so their tools must provide benefits without adding to that complexity. As a UX team, we delve into the problem-space by leveraging any one of the various techniques designers have for finding insights that others can’t. And with those insights, we also guide the products’ evolution. To that end, our designers must be part inventor, part craftsman but most of all, makers.

Operating similar to an internal agency, we’ll take on a good variety of business-critical projects where design is a necessary part of the solution. In the Markets Execution Group, our role is to drive an agenda of innovation by helping identify and evolve the best ideas and then partnering up with our skilled team of data scientists, engineers, and investment experts to figure out the best path to success.

Role Description

Our Visual Designers are co-owners of the UX and the identity of our next-generation of products and services.

  • Participate in the refinement of our methodology for delivery
  • Assist in efforts to recruit and retain top visual design talent
  • Nurture an environment of collaboration and partnership
  • Help establish a culture of design within the group and among our stakeholders.
