User Experience (UX) Designer

| Greater Boston Area

Quilt is an early stage startup tasked with addressing one of the largest problems facing America today: the perfect storm of people living longer AND saving less. As an independent subsidiary of a Fortune 100 company, Quilt has the resources to make a real difference and the agility to succeed where traditional, old school financial services companies have failed in the past.

Currently in the product development stage, Quilt plans to launch its first financial product in mid-2019. We’re looking for a well-rounded senior UX/product designer to join our small but growing team as our first design hire and lead the effort to translate our business concept into an interactive application.

You’ll get to…

  • Bring a new brand and digital product to life, taking it from idea to market

  • Design experiences and interfaces that address user needs and communicate your solutions at varying levels of fidelity, from whiteboard sketches to clickable prototypes

  • Conduct user research to validate and improve feature development and usability

  • Develop a style guide and component library in cooperation with front-end engineering

  • Prepare detailed visual comps and create assets for implementation

  • Work with external partners to develop and implement guidelines for our new brand

  • Closely collaborate with product management, engineering, and others in an Agile work environment

  • Work from our Boston, Massachusetts office

 

In the past you have…

  • Designed user experiences as part of a product team

  • Demonstrated an eye and a passion for customer-centric design

  • Developed information architecture, detailed user flows, and interaction designs for fully responsive websites or applications

  • Conducted various forms of user research and created accompanying design prototypes

  • Created high-fidelity visual designs and related graphical assets

  • Earned a bachelor’s degree in a related field

It’d be nice if you also have…

  • Experience designing direct-to-consumer, SaaS-style products

  • Experience working in an Agile development environment and ideas on how best to integrate user experience design into the Agile process

  • Experience working with engineers to create style guides and component libraries

  • Familiarity with front-end web technologies (HTML, CSS, JS)

  • A healthy curiosity for design theory and user experience design best practices

  • Experience with financial or insurance products or products with regulatory compliance considerations

You want to work at a company who values…

  • Having a sense of humor

  • Talking through complex issues while respecting viewpoints of others

  • Working with data and letting the analytics be your guide

  • Collaborative project and product development

  • Thinking about what we’re building - not just how it'll be delivered

  • Keeping it simple

  • Being proactive

Position Requirements

  • 3-5 years work experience in user experience design or related field

  • Bachelor’s degree in related field or equivalent experience

  • Work from our Boston office

  • Some business travel to other corporate offices

  • Candidates must be authorized to work in the U.S. without sponsorship

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to embody our brand and values as you apply your expertise in experience design to build financial products that tackle, head-on, the retirement and longevity issues facing America.

We pay competitive base salaries and provide significant team performance bonuses. Our salary structure is commensurate with experience. In addition, you will be eligible to participate in our comprehensive benefits program, including medical insurance, 401(K) with match, and a pension offered through our corporate parent, MassMutual.

Quilt is a high-growth team and equal opportunity employer with many opportunities to learn, experiment, and grow. Our team values diversity and encourages all races, religions, colors, origins, genders, sexual orientations, ages, marital statuses, veterans, and abilities to apply.

An Insider's view of MassMutual

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As a Product Owner, I spend most of my time collaborating with others across different business units. On any given day, I could be spending time brainstorming design concepts of upcoming features with our design team or assisting them with presenting these concepts to outside users as part of our user testing process.

Ryan

Digital Product Owner

What makes someone successful on your team?

Successful people on my team are: passionate, curious, receptive, and engaged. Each team member is expected to be passionate about the work that they do, and the domains in which they practice. They are always solving unique problems and must be curious about finding new solutions.

David

Digital Lead

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We work in an open floor plan, so there is a lot of opportunity for networking across roles, teams and levels. Everyone is very friendly and welcomes the opportunity to get to know other people on the floor.
