User Experience Architect
Great opportunity to lead the user experience of our new financial
services group. This individual will partner with our business and
technology teams to conceptualize, design and prototype applications for
the financial industry. This role has strong senior management support
and you will have an equal seat at the table developing strategy and
methodology for these new products as well as overseeing the overall
usability and design.
A candidate's portfolio must demonstrate a broad depth of experience
with emphasis on application, and user-interface design, while meeting
client needs in innovative ways. The ideal candidate needs to be part
interaction designer, part usability expert, part business analyst, and
all about user experience.
This individual should be capable of running workshops, driving the
necessary big picture thinking, documentation and being able to
communicate these to the project and client teams. This would include
being able to translate business and user requirements into innovative
design solutions and, while not having to do every aspect of the design,
must be comfortable producing deliverables such as personas and
wireframes. It is a "roll your sleeves up" type position.
10+ Years experience in web/application development with at least five
years in usability/interaction design.
Familiarity with Rich Internet Applications a must.
Dow Jones is less "corporate" than you may think! There's a gym and
daycare on-site, soccer, softball, and a flexible/Collaborative work
