What’s the role?

Bloomberg's User Experience group is expanding and looking for an experienced, innovative Designer and Front End Developer specializing in CSS3/HTML5/Java Script development. We are looking for a hybrid designer who can participate in both granular visual design work and can bring design concepts to life with pixel precision in CSS.

At our core, Bloomberg is an information and technology company, but there is no algorithm to our approach to design. Rather, everything Bloomberg does stems from an insatiable desire to meet users’ needs by constantly pushing the boundaries of business, technology, and design. Bloomberg's visual brand breaks ranks with traditional financial services companies; by being smart, bold, dynamic, and unapologetic; and by making complex user workflows a clear and engaging experience.

You will collaborate closely with a multi-disciplinary team of visual designers, interaction designers, prototypers, and engineers to push new functionality to clients. As the ideal candidate, you should have expert CSS3 knowledge, concrete design and typography skills, excellent problem-solving skills, and the ability to understand and iterate creatively around constraints. In addition to visual design principles, you should be familiar with UCD and agile methodologies.

You’ll need to have:

  • 5+ years of experience designing and implementing innovative visuals for modern desktop software applications or web based products.
  • Expert knowledge of CSS3/HTML5
  • BFA/MFA or BA/MA in Communication Design or Graphic Design with professional experience is strongly preferred.
