UX Designer

London and remote | Product | Full time

The position

Netwealth is looking for a UX Designer to join our team and help us continue the successful growth on our website and mobile app.

Working independently and reporting into the Senior Product Designer you will craft user experiences for our users that will help continue Netwealth's journey as a market leader in wealth management.

Why this role is important

As Netwealth continues to grow the need for industry-leading UX within wealth management is essential. Everyone that interacts with our website or app needs to experience a consistent and high-end journey that will convert potential leads and delight current clients.

The company

Netwealth is a London based wealth management company that provides a tailored and cost-effective wealth management service using the latest technology based on the latest cloud architecture from Microsoft's Azure platform. Founded in early 2016 by Charlotte Ransom and Thomas Salter, former Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan executives, Netwealth combines a highly experienced investment team with powerful financial technology and has raised a record £16.5M via two angel rounds from high profile City executives and entrepreneurs. These include Betfair co-founder Ed Wray, the Lloyds of London chairman Bruce Carnegie-Brown and Jupiter’s vice-chairman Edward Bonham Carter.

Netwealth provides a discretionary wealth management service targeting a mass-affluent audience (with a minimum of £50k to invest), where clients choose their portfolios online based on their financial goals, supported by a set of powerful financial tools. The portfolios are then managed by a highly seasoned investment team and clients can at any time access qualified financial advisers to get help with their financial affairs.

Flexible remote working policy

Our development team primarily works remotely and we trust you to manage your own work schedule. In return, we expect you to be available to your team, when required, and to deliver high-quality UX deliverables. We believe this enables you to operate at your most productive and creative.

The whole team comes to our London offices in Fitzrovia for 1 day every fortnight - but you may be asked to come in at short notice. As part of your role, you will be expected to set up and arrange usability testing within our office (in addition to any online testing tools). For this reason, successful candidates need to be able to get to the office and home without unreasonable cost or duration. For instance, if your journey takes 3 hours each way, you are unlikely to be "firing on all cylinders" the following day. Note: because our head office will be your permanent place of work we are not able to reimburse travel expenses between it and your home.
