Senior UX Designer - FinTech Venture Startup

| Greater NYC Area
We are an ever-growing global team of the world’s most remarkable entrepreneurs, designers, engineers, venture architects, product experts and investors. Our ventures create a strategic advantage for the most important global companies.
 
Backed by a Fortune 500 conglomerate with deep ties to this industry and BCGDV, this venture is uniquely positioned to disrupt a multi-billion dollar financial services industry. Through the application of cutting edge technology, product advantages and deep market relationships, we will provide a smart digital experience for our yet to be disclosed target market.
 
This new venture's digital product is focused on delivering value to niche segments. This new digital business will enable our corporate partner to drive differentiation in the market, acquire new customers, create additional revenue streams, and further build out their innovation capabilities. The product suite seeks to launch through current internal channels, while exploring high growth options into new geographies or segments. The business is built on a drive to customer centric design, providing exceptional customer service, and innovative solutions to problems.
As part of the new venture’s UX Design team, the Senior UX Designer will have a natural understanding of human behavior and will be passionate about translating this understanding into a delightful and visually appealing product experience for the end user. The Senior UX Designer will have an informed point of view regarding design and consider the end-to-end customer journey, which encompasses both the digital and physical (or offline) aspects of the product experience.

An Insider's view of BCG Digital Ventures

What’s the vibe like in the office?

DV New York is a tossed salad of disrupters, entrepreneurs, and innovators, all of whom are experts in their field. It's been a one-of-a-kind experience to be constantly expanding my perspective from working with peers who are so passionate about their trade, and also be able to teach others about my own subject matter expertise.
