Job Description:

Hey, have you heard Orion is growing and your skills may fit our organization, even if you do not match this position 100%. We welcome creativity, passion and growth minded individuals to move the needle forward!

As part of a product-driven organization, you'll play a big part in a small team of Product Designers owning core developments of the product-from inception to post-launch reflection. You will champion the design of delightful experiences that make it as simple as possible for thousands of users to adopt, use, and benefit from the Orion platform-helping us achieve our mission of enabling fiduciary advisors operationalize their vision for success.

The Orion Product Design team is a tight-knit, collaborative group of designers who love combining research, data insights, and feedback into a user-centered design process. Aside from becoming a member of the Product Design Team, you'll be a part of a Product Squad, where you'll work alongside Product Managers, Product Owners, and Developers to deliver solutions based on a specific area of focus.

You will

  • Design and prototype multiple ideas quickly, sometimes with customers, to validate product directions.
  • Have a deep understanding of typography, color, grid, and composition in pixel-perfect production mocks and prototypes.
  • Collaborate with Product Managers, Product Owners, Developers, and other stakeholders to deliver compelling UX solutions.
  • Help lead projects across the entire product lifecycle and multiple product launches.
  • Perform research with users of the Orion platform, which can include clients, staff, and more.
  • Synthesize your research findings to develop user workflows, information architecture, and prototypes.
  • Be actively involved in defining the strategy of the Orion Platform, thinking in terms of design systems, not just screens.
  • Work with the design team on developing and stewarding the long-term UX strategy for our internal tools to make design a natural part in the way we build products with the developer teams.

You are

  • BA/BS degree or equivalent practical experience.
  • 2+ years relevant design experience, ideally at a high tech, product-driven organization
  • Experienced designing digital apps and systems; you have helped ship products before, ideally in the SaaS/B2B space
  • Comfortable determining the appropriate design medium-whether that be a whiteboard drawing, a Figma design, or an HTML/CSS prototype
  • Experienced in an agile environment, working with engineers and product managers to make great experiences as a team and quickly ship ideas
  • Dedicated to solving problems of all sizes, for all kinds of users. You have experience validating your designs through user feedback.
  • Focused on the impact of your work. You're experienced in tracking usage of the things you build, and using the data collected to verify its effectiveness.
  • Aware of the importance of setting aside the time and space to learn and grow.
  • An interest in fin-tech or investment products is a plus.
