Have you ever thought about the typical user experience involved with trading on the stock market? Does the poor design of your banking app often leave you scratching your head? What if you could make it better? We’re in the business of making the financial world friendlier, and we’re looking for energetic designers who can geek out about data and ways to present it to regular humans. You’ll be exposed to a plethora of unique projects and challenges from clients located both domestically and around the world — Australia, Singapore, Italy, and the UK, to name a few — and the solutions are never cookie-cutter.
You’ll find support from a diverse team of creatives who are also a little obsessed about making complex financial data speak clearly. And beyond the design team, we have an amazing lineup of other really smart people — developers, engineers, financial analysts, and project managers — who eagerly bring their unique perspectives to solving problems. Together, we thrive to build the very best desktop and mobile experiences for our clients and their audiences.
What you'll need:
• The basics — Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign (Knowing some HTML and CSS would be super helpful.)
• A general knowledge of UX design and communicating workflows through sketches, diagrams, wireframes, visual designs, and interactive pieces
• An enthusiasm for data visualization and designing for data
• A candidness for respectful collaboration with team members and clients, and the ability to receive and act on feedback
• A desire for personal and professional growth and learning
• A general knowledge of financial markets is also useful (You'll learn a lot very quickly.)
What we bring:
Though we began as a small start-up, we've since grown into a fairly large company, and we’re cognizant of the challenges this can impose on maintaining a healthy company culture. We continually encourage a spirit of entrepreneurship that empowers people to share their distinct viewpoints and ideas. We operate in a very agency-like manner, and we’re committed to remaining true to our cultural roots as a Boulder, Colorado start-up. This approach has afforded us opportunities to provide service to some of the biggest brands in the financial industry. Our office is casual (mostly), we keep the kitchens stocked, and the people here are pretty cool.
Some of our benefits:
• The essentials — Competitive salary, health/dental insurance, matched 401(k) and potential bonus
• We believe it's important to give back and offer paid service days to volunteer in the community
• We'll subsidize your gym membership for up to $600 per year
• Do you prefer public transport? We'll pay for your annual bus pass (RTD's EcoPass)
• Or maybe cycling's your thing? We'll reimburse up to half the cost of your safety accessories
You'll need to be authorized to work in the US, and we unfortunately can't cover the costs of your move should you need to relocate for this role. We ask that you do have firm relocation plans if you decide to apply while living outside Colorado.
So, if you've read to this point and are excited to see where this can lead, we'd love to hear from you. If you scanned the bullets and skipped to the bottom, you missed a lovely bit of prose about culture and personal growth, but we don't blame you: you've probably read a hundred of these by now. Regardless, please share your online portfolio and any relevant links you feel demonstrate your experience and approach to design. We'll be in touch.
