VIEW JOBS 9/12/2019 12:00:00 AM 2019-12-11T00:00 1660 L Street NW (19006), United States of America, Washington, District of Columbia At Capital One, we're building a leading information-based technology company. Still founder-led by Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Richard Fairbank, Capital One is on a mission to help our customers succeed by bringing ingenuity, simplicity, and humanity to banking. We measure our efforts by the success our customers enjoy and the advocacy they exhibit. We are succeeding because they are succeeding. Guided by our shared values, we thrive in an environment where collaboration and openness are valued. We believe that innovation is powered by perspective and that teamwork and respect for each other lead to superior results. We elevate each other and obsess about doing the right thing. Our associates serve with humility and a deep respect for their responsibility in helping our customers achieve their goals and realize their dreams. Together, we are on a quest to change banking for good. Junior Visual Designer - United Income United Income is a financial technology company, headquartered in Washington, DC, that was recently acquired by Capital One. We combine the latest technology with time-tested wisdom to better understand the interconnectedness of our financial lives, allowing us to lower client's taxes, boost retirement benefits, and improve the quality of investment management. As of May 2019, we have over $780 million of assets under management, 99 percent client retention, and 88 percent of clients have had their fees reduced (since our technology lowers our operating costs, which we share with our clients). We've attracted over 200 media stories about the company's wealth-building innovations and thought leadership, including a Forbes article that said we have "an all-star team." We are united in our mission to use new technology to increase the financial potential of our customers in ways that have not been possible in the past. That's where you come in. We want the best and the brightest. Work is more fun when you know that you're surrounded by people who are as dedicated as you are. Our goals are simple: Create the best financial planning and money management solution in the world; Create a culture that is ambitious, fun, smart, and attracts and retains the best talent in each of our major areas of business; Meaningfully and measurably improve the financial lives of aging households. Interest piqued? Read on. We are looking for a visual designer who can operate within an established design system and support product, marketing, and internal communications, all with the goals of increasing assets under management, building our B2C on-boarding process, and maintaining our pace of innovation. If you love using design to improve lives and building strong brands, then this will be right up your alley! In this role you will have broad exposure to all aspects of the company's design. Refining our marketing website, landing pages, and their conversion rates? Yup. Working directly with UX and Product Management to build, test, and validate new and engaging financial technology tools? You bet. Reinforcing and refining the design system, culture, and visual brand for a newly-acquired start-up? Yeah, you'll be able to add that to your portfolio. But let's be clear: United Income is just getting started. There are going to be a lot of random tasks and not everything you do will fall into the category of super-exciting. There will be plenty of typical design work of course, but also PowerPoint presentations, email tweaks, white paper layouts, article refining, compliance-related layout adjustments, and last-minute deadlines that we need to hustle in order to meet. All of this will be part of your world and we're super excited to have you. You'll be reporting directly to Monique, United Income's Creative Director. We'll need you to come ready to work, with a keen eye for detail and an interest in learning about design systems.
