At Vontobel, we are committed to actively shaping our future. We create and pursue investment opportunities that get our clients ahead. As a globally operating financial expert with Swiss roots, we specialize in wealth management, active asset management and investment solutions that fit.

Your Challenge

Our new Client Insight & Client Experience team within Vontobel’s Brand Management is looking for a motivated UX/UI Designer with a proven track record in bringing outstanding experiences to market – ideally with knowledge of both UX and UI, financial services and other industries.

As a member of our team, you will collaborate closely with our Client Experience specialists and business partners to develop and design new solutions, processes and offerings according to the needs and behaviors of our clients and users. You will be responsible for designing the UX and UI experiences that we want to deliver at Vontobel, across both online (main focus) and offline client journeys.

As a Senior UX/UI Designer, you will be responsible for:

  • Leading the creation of user flows and wireframes, designing mockups and experience prototyping
  • Helping to define and drive the future of Vontobel’s client experience through human-centered and data-informed experiences
  • Ensuring all designs and user interfaces are consistent, effective and in alignment with the Vontobel branding strategy and guidelines
  • Exploring the perspectives of clients and users, whether B2B, B2B4C or B2C, in order to understand their problems, needs, and pain points; e.g. by leading client workshops, during which you will seek input from clients concerning user experience concepts and clarify experiential requirements
  • Conducting user research, identifying and sketching out key scenarios and participating in generative and evaluative design research efforts executed by external third-party vendors
  • Passionately advocating end-user-centered usability views and working across all Vontobel business areas
  • Helping to create, maintain and enforce the brand book, templates, style guides and toolkits for digital experiences

We are looking for a self-starter who will thrive in a dynamic and creative work environment that requires strong problem-solving skills and the ability to work independently, and who also possesses very good communication skills and the aptitude to work in a team. The desired candidate is someone who excels at contributing both highly analytical and highly creative ideas for client and user engagement.
