Associate, Product Designer (NY / Princeton, NJ) At BlackRock

Location: New York, New York

Job Description

Description

About this role

Location: NY / Princeton, NJ

We’re Aladdin Wealth Tech. We are a fintech company with a small-town vibe but some big-time resources. We’re part of BlackRock, the largest asset manager on the planet, but we feel more like a startup. We’ve got a great new office space in the middle of the SoMa neighborhood in San Francisco and we are two years away from opening an amazing new office in Hudson Yards in New York. You’d want to grab a beer or a cold brew with the people here. We’re not all financial experts. You don’t have to be either. You just need to care passionately about what we do because it’s important – more than 50% of all Americans won’t have enough to cover basic needs once they retire. Together we can change that.

We build products that help financial advisors and their clients build and realize holistic plans to save for some of life’s most important moments: buying a home, sending your kids to college, retirement. We partner with financial advisors and financial institutions across the world who use our products with their customers. We believe that exceptional design is an essential ingredient to how we enable the power of BlackRock’s Aladdin technology to improve the lives of financial advisors and investors.

We’re redesigning our products from the ground up and we’re growing our design team (based in SF and NY tri-state) to help us build experiences that our partners can’t wait for their advisors and clients to use. If you want to work on impactful solutions to a really challenging problem – producing better financial outcomes for families – then keep on reading!

We’re looking for a Product (UX/UI) Designer to join our growing design team. You are equally adept at solving complex customer journeys and sweating the visual details in page layouts. You love the challenge of crafting creative, simple elegant designs for complex ideas.

What you will be doing:

  • Own the interaction + visual design of key features in our Advisor Center family of products. You will be a hands-on designer, working with a cross-disciplinary squad of product managers, developers + designers.
  • Partner with product managers + design researchers, using design sprints and lean UX methods, to create product concepts ... and bring the best ideas to market.
  • Partner with other designers to evolve the design system for Advisor Center and to help us create a new design system that brings together our family of products focused on financial advisor experiences.
  • Be an expert on design trends within the investing, financial services + consumer software space.

What we are looking for

  • 2 – 4 years of experience as a UX/UI designer of software applications (mobile + web)
  • Experience working as a designer in cross-disciplinary squads, including familiarity with design as part of an agile software development process
  • Experience working as a designer in all phases of the product lifecycle = using design thinking methods for discovery, using iterative and/or lean UX design methods to create detailed (UX + UI) design deliverables, working closely with product, development, marketing + data scientists to improve an "in production" product
  • Exceptional communication skills (verbal, visual, written)
  • BFA/BS/BA degree in design or a related discipline
  • A portfolio sharing creative design solutions to complex problems; including shipped products + experiences
  • An interest in investing, financial markets and how technology can improve human-to-human interactions


What we would prefer (think rainbow unicorns):

  • Experience working on products in the financial technology space
  • Hands-on understanding of how designs are implemented on the web = familiarity with both UX frameworks (Angular, Bootstrap, React) and UI styling technology (CSS, Less.js, Sass)
  • Experience working within a x-disciplinary design team including UX designers, UI designers, content strategists + design researchers
