Role Guide
A UX Designer at FE is a holistic, multidisciplinary person who is primarily responsible for the design of FE products' user interfaces, defining their form, behaviour and content, ensuring coherence and consistency, combining usability with visual design.
With a vast product line, FE's requirements on the UX front are very important considering the wide variety of the user base - from independent investors to professional fund managers across a wide demographic.

The UX designer will be required to work closely with all aspects of the business, right from key director level stakeholders to the implementation teams to address the requirements successfully from the user experience perspective. You will also be working to create product specific requirements, basing your UX decisions on scientific, proven design principles as well as data derived from current usage. Your recommendations will then be used to improve the usability of the product and ensuring that it is implemented with best UX practices.
One of the key requirements will be to ensure that you will overcome design and implementation challenges that may arise across the business, coordinating effectively with multiple departments. You will also work to ensure that there is a healthy balance maintained between the best possible usability implementations, business requirements, FE core technologies, including Microsoft technologies such as .NET / Azure and Single Page Applications based on AngularJS to ensure that the product design effectively helps users address their requirements.
