Product Designer, Capital One

Product Designers at Capital One are problem-solvers with excellent visualization, collaboration, and communication skills – and are hybrids that understand design and development from start to finish. We create compelling interactive experiences and are passionate about designing products the right way – ultimately making digital banking something to be excited about. 

What You'll Be Doing: 

Ideating and thinking critically about how users interact with conversational messaging and voice-enabled user interfaces. From design sprints to team exploration you'll be brainstorming, sketching, and wire-framing your ideas. You will be contributing to positively change customers’ expectations on what their bank can do for them. 

Iterating on your designs, informed by user research. You'll be learning about people and how they interact with money, and designing products to meet those needs. Design thinking isn't just a buzzword, it means placing customers first and adapting as you learn. 

Analyzing customer data, and watching market trends for conversational interfaces and Artificial Intelligence. We’re using data to define the future of our messaging products, from bots and beyond. And you’ll use this data to inform how you design for those products. 

Co-creating content with some of the best product managers, content strategists, researchers, engineers, and other partners in the industry. Together, you’re designing an entire ecosystem of messaging products and conversational interfaces, so it’s crucial you’re a collaborative and inclusive team member.

Designing more than just user interface layouts with visual polish. You'll be creating user flows, customer journeys, and usable interactions with one purpose in mind: conversational interaction for both voice and screen. Tackling complex problems will be a regular activity, designing intuitive user-centered experiences. 

Prototyping your ideas and product needs, using whichever tool is most expedient. In browser or out, you'll  provide highly accurate and technically feasible prototypes that will be used and shared regularly. A prototype is worth a thousand meetings, and yours will help expedite the design and product development cycle. 

Shipping is a more than just agile development processes. All your work is grounded in what we'll deliver to our customers, but you'll push product designs to the farthest reaches of their potential. As part of a sprint team you'll tackle user needs together, and provide creative solutions while balancing development best practices.
