About the Role

We are looking for an Associate-level Product Designer for our Cloud-based design team in our Professional Software group. Backed by Morningstar's independent research, methodologies, high-quality data, behavioral science and innovative product design, our team builds a modern suite of software that helps both wealth and asset managers as well as advisors hone their investment strategies, build competitive portfolios, and research industry trends. This multi-talented individual will be involved in all parts of the design process: concept development, creative visualization, user research and testing, UX writing, system design, and prototyping. This person will work within a cross-functional, global team developing software for financial professionals. We seek a curious, entrepreneurial designer who loves the challenges of elegantly simplifying complex data, translating user needs into intuitive, rewarding interactions, and beautifully expressing our brand.

Job Responsibilities

--- Owning all parts of the design process from discovery, definition, development, and delivery

--- Bringing concepts to life through clear wireframes to illustrate a single point in a flow while also exploring how this could impact or align with the experience

--- Creating high-fidelity prototypes and other artifacts that communicate design direction and execution considerations

--- Understanding how to connect the information we're trying to communicate with a user's anticipated or perceived needs and actions

--- Helping implement best practices around creating a great user experience

--- Creating personas, experience maps, and user journeys to identify pain points and opportunities within an experience

--- Solving a variety of navigation and information organization challenges.

--- Using deliverables, such as site maps, to visually communicate relationships between pages and content

--- Recognizing and supporting user-focused solutions and design thinking methods by preparing materials for workshops, contributing to research sessions, and helping the team create prototypes

--- Creating wireframes, low-fidelity prototypes, task flows, and other artifacts to visualize and communicate design direction

--- Applying creativity, logic, and critical thinking in new situations to find the best solution while continuously striving to find better ways of doing things

--- Actively seeking out new challenges and tasks and overcoming obstacles to achieve results.

--- Demonstrating core design skills-especially concerning typography, composition, information hierarchy, and data visualization-to create delightful, engaging experiences that reinforce the Morningstar brand

--- Solving challenging information and communication design problems and being able to present multiple concepts for consideration, with sound rationale

--- Supporting the Morningstar Design System by defining and specifying consistent interactions, patterns, and conventions

You'll also do things like:

--- Collaborate with the product owner, designer, and engineers on your squad to make product decisions

--- Clearly articulate design decisions and share your process with stakeholders and other designers when appropriate

--- Collect, interpret, and prioritize the feedback you receive

--- Participate in critiques, workshops, design studios, and other design activities

--- Participate in user research and prototyping activities, such as helping with planning, taking notes during sessions, and helping analyze the data

--- Demonstrate design skills, especially concerning typography, information hierarchy, and data visualization

--- Be curious, resourceful, and have a desire to solve challenging information, communication, and systems design problems

--- Prioritize your work and know when to ask for help or clarity

Basic Qualifications:

--- Bachelor's degree

--- 1-2 years of relevant professional experience designing for software, web and/or digital products

Preferred Qualifications:

--- Experience working with Design Systems

--- Strong knowledge of Sketch, Invision, Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Office Suite, and Mac OS X
