Role Overview

We are looking for a UX Lead in EMEA to work closely with Product and Engineering team members as part of a new EMEA-based Product team that will follow Design Thinking and Agile Delivery.
We want someone who is seeking the opportunity to have a big impact and who relishes the challenge of working in a fast-paced global company in the Financial sector.
Our EMEA UX Lead will know how to build empathy within an industry they may not be familiar with, understand and define client objectives, generate breakthrough ideas, prototype quickly to enable testing and short-cycle innovation. More than that, they will also be ready for the challenge of developing a deep understanding about our industry – understanding why things happen the way they do, to enable true innovation.

No two deals are the same, so our products will need to be versatile and intuitive and provide insight for the professionals who use them, empowering them to make better informed decisions and recommendations.

This role will offer an opportunity to innovate in a highly complex space. You’ll be challenged intellectually and professionally, and it will suit someone with a lot of curiosity and a passion for great design.

• Impressive deductive reasoning skills and empathy;
• Experience running Design Critiques from both sides of the table;
• UI design experience grounded in both information architecture and interaction design;
• Experience successfully applying UX design practices in an Agile software development environment.

Additionally, the following would be helpful:
• Full Stack development experience;
• Experience of working within the squad model, and internal open source development
• Knowledge and interest in Test Driven Development (TDD)
• Familiar with:
• Continuous Integration(CI) / Continuous Delivery(CD)
