UX / Interaction Designer

Thomson Reuters Product Management 3/9/2018 9:14:42 AM London, United Kingdom
Job Description

Are you excited at the thought of taking on complex design challenges? Are you interested in the financial and risk machinery which drives our economic system?

This is a challenging role for an interaction designer, who will join us armed with 3+ years of commercial or public sector experience and an outstanding portfolio. You will be involved in significant new work on the Thomson Reuters Financial & Risk strategic software platforms.

The role is in the Financial & Risk Experience Design team, based in London. The team works across a wide range of systems and products, with the focus of this role being on the Finance platform framework, as well as one or more Risk product lines. The work may include looking at the ‘operating system’ of our framework (how windowing works, core services like search and alerts, and how apps connect with each other) as well as specialist apps launched on the framework for Finance and Risk professionals.

We are interested both in designers who are stronger in research and conceptual design, and those whose strength is in UI design, visual design, and perhaps front-end coding (for prototyping/testing). We have a balance of skills across the team and welcome a different combination of skills in each designer who joins.

You will work closely with a core team of senior designers who together have a great deal of experience working on complex desktop and web applications, and in designing for finance and risk professionals. With the mentoring and support we can provide within the team, we’re happy to welcome designers with no experience in the financial or risk area, as long as they have the appetite for the kind of complex work we regularly take on.

Responsibilities

  • Leverage your toolkit of interaction design approaches on full-cycle design and delivery projects, from product definition through to execution and deployment.
  • Conduct design research as appropriate.
  • Develop a strong working understanding of how finance and risk professionals go about their work, and how they use our and competitors’ products.
  • Communicate your designs to business stakeholders, backing your decisions with rationale and evidence.
  • Work closely with development teams on the execution of UI designs.
  • Create prototypes and mockups in different media, depending on your skills and experience, to help convey product vision and to test solutions.

You

  • Have a degree, preferably to Masters level, in design or a relevant discipline, plus 3+ years experience. We do appreciate there are ways into experience design outside of formal education. Whatever the route you’ve taken, you should have a grip on the discipline’s body of knowledge.
  • Have experience of conducting design research, user testing, or other user engagement activities.
  • Are a proficient user of Sketch, Axure, or equivalent wireframing and prototyping tools.
  • Have a strong appetite for complexity, for thinking about operating systems, for grids, numbers, forms, and for disentangling workflows associated with managing and consuming data.
  • Enjoy seeing your work taken through the trials of implementation and into the users’ hands.
  • Are comfortable working alongside or within an Agile development process.

We are an established design team who have had a major impact on Thomson Reuters products over the past several years. We are setting ourselves up for a new phase of work on major initiatives which will strengthen Thomson Reuters’ status as the leading data aggregator and provider of high-quality information in the professional world. If you share our values of collaboration, commitment to helping our users and each other, and a willingness to take the initiative and learn from mistakes, then we’d be very happy to have you.
