Senior User Experience Designer




At Symphony, we're on a mission to help people communicate, collaborate, and enjoy their work. Our secure messaging platform is changing the way people do business in information-sensitive industries, with financial services being our first vertical.
Symphony’s success will rely heavily on our ability to deliver intuitive, delightful user experiences that raise the bar for elegance and effectiveness of business communication.
To accomplish this, we need a world-class design organization that’s passionate, empathetic, and excited to take on huge challenges. That’s where you come in.
We're looking for a creative, passionate, and detail-oriented Sr. Experience Designer.

Our ideal candidate is an overall design generalist and interaction design expert who is as comfortable hashing out big-picture workflow and strategy as they are prototyping detailed visual and interaction execution.
You'll work closely with a talented and growing design organization in a fast-paced startup-environment to drive our experience strategy, envision elegant and seamless workflows, and deliver refined and engaging product experiences.
