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.

Product Designer, Principal

As a 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.

Basic Qualifications:

  • At least 5 years of experience with User Experience design

  • At least 3 years of experience designing digital products

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Master's degree in Design or Master's degree in Human-Computer Interaction

  • 7+ years of experience with user experience design

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

  • 7+ years' experience with standard digital design tools (e.g. Sketch, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Omnigraffle, Balsamiq, Axure, etc.)

  • 5+ years of experience leading projects and other designers

  • 5+ years of experience with information architecture

  • 5+ years of experience creating prototypes at various levels of fidelity

At this time, Capital One will not sponsor a new applicant for employment authorization for this position.

While our environment is collaborative and relaxed, we build products that are well-considered and well-architected. We're looking for a thoughtful and passionate Product Designer to join our team. You will become a central part of the product team, working directly with product managers and clients to solve big problems and alongside our engineers to build performant, user-centric products for the web and mobile. Product designers at Postlight are expected to be experienced in multiple design disciplines and fluent in the language of how digital products work today. Who you are: * You're comfortable working on products from brainstorming to implementation * You have experience working closely with developers, product managers and other designers as well as clients * You're comfortable presenting to your work internally and to stakeholders * You're able to engage actively with clients and take the lead in design conversations * You're able to create and execute designs both from a blank slate and within existing work * You're excited about learning new skills and exploring new interface paradigms * You love what you do and get excited about the future of products What you have: * Portfolio of design work that demonstrates a meticulous, thoughtful approach and attention to detail * Experience in creating digital and responsive design for web and mobile * Deep expertise with Sketch, Figma or Adobe Creative Cloud and experience of documenting your designs * Ability to collaborate with other designers both internally and from client teams and rapidly adapt to feedback * Past experience in communicating with clients and a proven history of successful design implementations * Strong understanding of typography, information hierarchy, color, and other UI concerns * Understanding of web standards, browser and mobile capabilities, and UX best practices * Willingness to give and accept constructive criticism * A positive attitude, a sense of humor and a desire to build accessible products for all users Whether working on site or remotely, your communication skills will be as important as your technical ones. Collaborating across time zones requires constant, clear communication and coordination, via Slack, GitHub comments, documents, and frequent video conferences. Postlight is headquartered in New York City, but a third of our team works remotely. We know how to keep everyone on the same page, and so should you. Your skill set will grow at Postlight. You will join a team excited about the problems they solve and the tools they use to solve them. We keep pace with the industry, and are active participants in the open-source world.
