Product Designer (UX)
At Capital One, we’re building a leading information-based technology company. Still founder-led by Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Richard Fairbank, Capital One is on a mission to help our customers succeed by bringing ingenuity, simplicity, and humanity to banking. We measure our efforts by the success our customers enjoy and the advocacy they exhibit. We are succeeding because they are succeeding.
Guided by our shared values, we thrive in an environment where collaboration and openness are valued. We believe that innovation is powered by perspective and that teamwork and respect for each other lead to superior results. We elevate each other and obsess about doing the right thing. Our associates serve with humility and a deep respect for their responsibility in helping our customers achieve their goals and realize their dreams. Together, we are on a quest to change banking for good.
Product Designer (UX)
We’re looking for a UX Designer to join our Product Design team. The role can be based in Nottingham or London but will require occasional travel to the other office. This is because you'll be working with and for people across both locations.
OUR PRODUCT DESIGN PHILOSOPHY AT CAPITAL ONE
We’ve invested heavily in building a strong digital practice that speaks directly to our mission of making credit simple. Our digital transformation has challenged us, taught us how to be creative and helped us bring to life a roadmap for customer servicing that stands alongside the best in the industry. Despite our progress, we want to do better. The Product Design practice is central to our continuous improvement.
Product Design is a team of people with various skills and expertise, including UX, UI and Content. Designers partner with Product and Engineering within a Tribes model. Each Tribe owns its own roadmap, commercials and a customer-facing agenda. Our UX Designers advise and work alongside tribe leadership and hold the reigns of the product experience for our mobile app, web servicing and agent experience. They work with engineering teams using Agile delivery, co-creating and continually optimising our product experience. UI Designers act as guardians of our brand experience, ensuring the continuity and consistency of our design language. Our Content leads craft language that builds trust, removes ambiguity and help maintain our values of simplicity even when dealing with complex financial processes.
We are all expected to collaborate with the business all the way through the delivery journey. Building roadmaps and working to identify, address and resolve delivery challenges. We’re not a digitally native business, so our Product Designers have to be strong collaborators, communicators and facilitators. Willing to work with partners across the business, demonstrating strong leadership and accepting shared responsibility for our successes and failures.
