As a Product Designer at Ensight, you will:

  • Be a core part of the Ensight Design team, helping us reimagine the sales process for the life insurance and annuities industry.
  • Work tightly with the Director of Product Management and New Markets on a wide variety of projects.
  • Collaborate closely with the Senior Product Designer to build a high-performing design department.
  • Work across a number of functional areas, including Product, Sales, Business Development, Client Success and Marketing.
  • Immediately start contributing valuable work to a fast-moving, highly committed team.
  • See design work rapidly go from ideation to live deployment.
  • Be deeply involved in the end-to-end design process for both existing and new software modules within the Ensight platform.
  • Design solutions for both the industry as a whole, as well as our client base of individual large insurance carriers.
  • Create user flows, low and high-fidelity designs and clickable mocks, both for ideation and engineering pass-offs.
  • Develop a deep understanding of our customer’s business and personas.
  • Conduct user interviews and feedback sessions to inform the design process.
  • Advocate for an extraordinary customer experience, based on a deep understanding of our client’s needs.
  • Design for a wide variety of personas, many of whom are not advanced users of technology.
  • Be able to design tactically for the Ensight platform of today and strategically for the Ensight platform of the future.
  • Ensure consistent application of design thinking processes and solutions across the Ensight platform.
  • Initially, work with oversight, but progress to working and leading design projects with minimal supervision.

We are looking for someone who:

  • Thinks outside of the box - you never utter the words: “Well, that’s just the way things are done”.
  • Is comfortable switching it up – someone who can move from thinking about UX, to visual appeal, to specific project needs, and beyond.
  • Is driven by design aesthetics, but whose designs are deeply anchored in usability.
  • Is excited about using design and software to tell an industry’s story.
  • Loves to do research but thrives on rolling up their sleeves and getting things done.
  • Sees a concept through from ideation to execution.
  • Is comfortable using both quantitative and qualitative data to inform the design process.
  • Is a sponge when it comes to learning about our user’s business, and who isn’t afraid to delve into the details of complex insurance products.
  • Is comfortable operating in a scrappy “get the job done” environment and is also excited to help build out a more formalized design role within our organization.
  • Enjoys operating “in the grey”, working to tease out user’s needs and coming up with creative solutions for their pain point.
  • Has experience working with remote engineering teams.

Requirements:

  • Two years’ experience designing software products.
  • Excellent visual and UI design skills.
  • Strong user experience design skills: understands information architecture and multi-step flows.
  • Strong product-thinking skills: understands how designs support user goals, team's goals, the broader product vision, and company objectives.
  • Proven experience conducting qualitative and quantitative research to inform your design work.
  • Skilled in the modern design stack, including Figma and Sketch as well as the Adobe design suite.
  • Experience working at other fintech or insurtech startups not required, but a strong plus.
