Job Description

About Us
AdvicePay is the first and only way for financial planners to get paid in a compliant way on a subscription or one-time basis by ACH or credit cards.

At AdvicePay, we are helping shape the future of financial planning because we believe there is a more straightforward way for consumers to get financial advice. AdvicePay is the missing puzzle piece to bring real financial planning to all Americans. Historically financial planning advice was only available to millionaires; however advisors have shifted focus to helping people build wealth, instead of only those who already have wealth. Financial advisors have complicated compliance regulations that have hindered the ability for them to work with all clients.

About the Position
This is a full-time position for a Senior UI/UX Designer. The senior designer will be responsible for making our SaaS application user-friendly and b-e-a-utiful for the advisors and their clients who use AdvicePay. You will be the first on-staff UI/UX designer; this requires you to have the ability to understand, create and lead the user experience of the platform along with the overall design direction. This position requires autonomy and independence, so the ability to make decisions and self-manage is key. You will also work alongside various AdvicePay stakeholders, such as the product manager, CEO, lead developer, and our Happiness Hero to gather and evaluate product requirements and deliver experience that meet the needs of both the Advisors and their clients.

What You’ll be Doing

  • Proactively identify UX problems from our users and troubleshoot solutions
  • Facilitate user testing, interviews and feedback
  • Run A/B tests and other analytic driven tests to determine effective solutions
  • Iterate on designs to improve user experience

What You’ll Bring to The Table

  • 3-5 Years of Experience as a UI/UX Designer or similar role in a web application
  • Vision to connect your work with the user’s needs and AdvicePay’s overall mission
  • Confidence, autonomy, and action to own the design and AdvicePay user experience
  • The knowledge of cutting-edge technology and its integration with how to design effectively given the advantages of reactive data versus the DOM
  • You have a robust knowledge of best design practices and contemporary design patterns.
  • You have an understanding of web capabilities and can effectively design alongside developers
  • An iterative and curious design philosophy to solve problems
  • A passion for working on projects where there is some unknown and ambiguity
