AVP, Design Standard Designer — IBG

You'll spend most of your time trying to simplify very complex products and ideas. It may be an uphill battle, but it's worth it. If you succeed, your designs will be experienced by millions and solve real-life problems. We say that, if you can work in a bank, you can work anywhere. Don't worry, we're a nice bunch of people. Around here, we go out of our way to help one another.

Responsibilities

  • You’ll work closely with designers & collaborating with engineers and stakeholders to make sure we are heading in the right direction when it comes todesign systems & standards
  • You’ll be required to understand the overall landscape & context so that you can help product teams make the right decisions
  • You’ll need to build relationships and collaborate with multiple teams. A lot of these product teams are building consumer facing products but you’ll also need to know and understand how the design system is being utilised across B2B and enterprise products
  • You will have to come up with solutions, process and maybe work with UX Engineers to build tools that make process, communication & governance of our design system
  • We do respect the privacy of people with headphones-on, trying to avoid eye contact. So you'll have the time to actually produce work you're proud of
  • We want to hire people who have opinions, believe in their ideas and are willing to fight for them. But we also want people who can recognise when a better argument or solution is put before them. All of us participate in user testing, and so will you
  • Like we said, producing good work is not good enough if it doesn't get built. We love you, Dribble/Behance. It's not you, it's us. You will meet stakeholders from different departments and articulate your ideas so clearly that you'll become an honorary Toastmaster
  • To prepare for those meetings you'll need to check the latest relevant data
  • Before you know it, it will be Friday and time for team dinner, drinks or Creative Day (we do something fun and creative together once a month)

Requirements

  • You have high attention to detail and be able to avoid oversight
  • You understand the needs to designers, engineers & know how to contextualise problems
  • You have the ability to prioritise (you don't focus on illustrations if the UX lookslike a love child between Frankenstein and Krusty the Clown)
  • You can work independently and drive outcomes
  • You have enough curiosity to stay savvy about industry and UX trends
  • You have confidence in your ideas and the ability to communicate them clearly
  • You follow through—when built, your designs actually look and work like they should
  • You monitor products after launch and are ready to suggest improvements
