  • Act as the interaction design subject-matter expert for the product design team and use a comprehensive understanding of interaction design theory, research data and best practices to inform design decisions.
  • Design artifacts of high complexity to communicate task flows, touchpoints, behaviours, and the exchange of information.
  • Create complex low-fidelity sketches, wireframes, and prototypes to explore, communicate, and validate ideas and create complex prototypes to provide delivery specifications for development. 
  • Present interaction design work to more senior stakeholders
  • Facilitate usability testing and participate in or initiate research activities. 
  • Research interaction design strategies in the financial services sector and perform competitive audits pertinent to specific design or business goals and perform pattern, micro-interaction and component design audits where appropriate.

  • 3+ years of experience in designing usable interfaces across multiple channels and platforms.
  • Experience in an applied research setting including experience integrating user research into product designs and design practices.

What’s in it for you?

We thrive on the challenge to be our best, progressive thinking to keep growing, and working together to deliver trusted advice to help our clients thrive and communities prosper.
