Backed by a Fortune 500 conglomerate with deep ties to this industry and BCGDV, this venture is uniquely positioned to disrupt a multi-billion dollar financial services industry. Through the application of cutting edge technology, product advantages and deep market relationships, we will provide a smart digital experience for our yet to be disclosed target market.
This new venture's digital product is focused on delivering value to niche segments. This new digital business will enable our corporate partner to drive differentiation in the market, acquire new customers, create additional revenue streams, and further build out their innovation capabilities.

The business is built on a drive to customer centric design, providing exceptional customer service, and innovative solutions to problems.
The Lead UX Designer will work alongside the interim Head of Design to lead and drive the User Experience work stream. The Lead UX Designer will have a natural understanding of human behavior and passion for translating this understanding into a delightful and visually appealing product experience for the end user. You will also have an informed point-of-view regarding design and consider the end-to-end customer journey, which encompasses both the digital and physical (or offline) aspects of the product experience.
What You’ll Do:

UX Vision and Strategy

  • Create design briefs that outline design iterations, prioritized concepts and timelines
  • Identify and collect exemplars and articulate their design logic, benefits and trade-offs
  • Develop and prototype low to high fidelity wireframes & visual designs along with the supporting information and content strategy
  • Construct quick interactive prototypes that illustrate UI/UX design: functional with modern effects, animations, and transitions as appropriate, that present a realistic feel of the intended experience
  • Create style guides, templates, and other helpful frameworks for the design team members
  • Translate strategic design into controls, mechanisms and processes that users require to meet goals
  • Operate in a fast-paced environment with tight timelines
  • Mentor and oversee the work of design team members 
  • What You’ll Bring:


  • 5+ years of experience in UI/UX design, with demonstrated leadership roles and exposure to start-up environments
  • Strong credibility and relationships within M&T
  • Hands-on experience designing UI/UX from conception to minimum viable products to scaled launch & adoption
  • Expertise in building interactive prototypes to illustrate UX & UI design for web sites and mobile apps using modern technologies
  • Comfortable working within multidisciplinary teams of product managers, strategic, visual, and motion designers, and engineers
  • A demonstrated history of accountability and performance delivery, leading teams to meet or exceed objectives
  • An entrepreneurial spirit and ability to operate collaboratively with all levels of the organization


  • Mastery of Sketch, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and emergent UX tools

An Insider's view of BCG Digital Ventures

What’s the vibe like in the office?

DV New York is a tossed salad of disrupters, entrepreneurs, and innovators, all of whom are experts in their field. It's been a one-of-a-kind experience to be constantly expanding my perspective from working with peers who are so passionate about their trade, and also be able to teach others about my own subject matter expertise.
