The Company

Bloomberg is the leading global provider of financial data, news and analytics. The BLOOMBERG TERMINAL and Bloomberg's media services provide real-time and archived financial and market data, pricing, trading, news and communications tools in a single, integrated package to corporations, news organizations, financial and legal professionals and individuals around the world.

The Role

Bloomberg's User Experience group is expanding and looking for an experienced, innovative Senior Visual Designer. We are looking for a creative, multi-disciplinary team player who can take a role in both granular design work and the strategic visual design direction for current and future Bloomberg products.

The candidate should have a proven track record in producing exciting, innovative visuals for modern software applications and other digital and interactive properties. Work done on OS-level projects is a plus.

The individual in this role will be responsible for iterating on out-of-the-box solutions and resolving tough design problems in the financial arena that involve large data sets and complicated workflows. An ideal candidate should have an innovative portfolio, understand constraints quickly, meticulous attention to transitional states (e.g. finding the right visual metaphors for user actions such as hiding or showing an object), and be able to produce and communicate creative design for colleagues, clients, and senior executives.

In addition to visual design principles, the candidate must be familiar with UCD methodologies and design cycles. Professional experience or a degree in Human-Computer Interaction, Human Factors, or related field is strongly preferred.
