Experience Design Manager

We want to change the way people engage with their money, their bank, and their financial lives. It’s audacious work at a massive scale. Here you’ll find designers, hackers, rockers, artists, entrepreneurs, and data scientists. As a team, we come to work every day looking to build digital experiences that are authentic and bold.

What You Bring:
You have a background in digital, geek out about the latest technologies, and believe that no digital experience is perfect unless it delights customers in ways they never knew were important – but now can’t live without. You have an exuberant passion for the power of strategic design and an “anything’s possible” mindset. You’re proud of your work, your skill, your experience and your expertise. You’re not cynical, inflexible, or only about your portfolio and you want to be part of something great.

Your designs are thoughtful and make sense in a mobile context. You know how to leverage and advocate for the unique interaction patterns of iOS and Android; and you’re not afraid to try something new to raise the bar where it makes sense for the customer.

Things that might tip us off you’re not the right person for this position:
• You think Square is just a geometric shape
• Raspberry Pi looks misspelled
• You have an aversion to denim

Here’s what you’ll need to be successful:
- You have demonstrated experience improving digital user interfaces through various tools and techniques
- You’re going to be responsible for delivering an experience, so you must have worked in a product group focusing on web or mobile applications for a few years; in and around cool designers and nerdy engineers – and love it.
- Your prior experience will be important because you will be responsible for your product throughout the full product lifecycle.
- Working with our banking product teams, you’ll need to identify opportunities and uncover untapped needs through customer research and interaction data
- You possess the ability to deliver on those insights by driving product vision and strategy to position our digital products alongside our core financial products
- Working with our engineering teams, that vision you clearly articulated will need to turn into simple, intuitive experiences that serve our customer’s banking needs
- You have demonstrated record of success inventing and launching successful features
- You are experienced the end-to-end design process, balancing customer insights and business goals

What you’ll do:
Primarily, research, explore and document the insights, reasoning and decisions that validate our approach to the final product or experience; secondarily, create high-fidelity visualizations of the digital experiences we intend to create. You can write solid front-end code, or design in the browser, too? Great, that’s a plus.

Specifically, you will:
- Advocate and be the voice of our customer in our product development process

- Develop and maintain artifacts that express humanity, simplicity and ingenuity

- View UX design through the lens of content development and establish a written tone to compliment design

- Use customer-driven insights and agile methodologies to deliver elegant and delightful customer experiences

- Collaborate and create visual design and strategy for prototyping and pilot efforts

- Translate business requirements into (lo or hi-fi) visual concepts and prototypes to be used in testing

- Create interaction models, user task flows, screen designs, and UI details that promote ease of use and optimize task flows

- Partner with Product Managers to influence product design and express / own the UX strategy

- Create and deliver UX/UI design documentation to aid with cross-team communication, collaboration and development

- Visualize complex sets of data in ways that are easy to comprehend

Basic Qualifications:
- High School diploma, GED, equivalent certification, or military experience

- At least 6 years of user experience with experience design

Preferred Qualifications: 
- Bachelor’s degree in Design or Human-Computer Interaction

- 7 years of experience with user experience design for digital products

- 7 years of experience with Adobe Creative Suite

- 7 years of experience with information architecture

- 5 years of experience with prototyping tools

At this time, Capital One will not sponsor a new applicant for employment authorization for this position.
