Senior UX Designer

| Chicago

Morningstar is building software that users love. We are passionate about helping our customers improve their lives through better investing, budgeting, saving, and debt management decisions. We reach millions of investors around the world directly through our consumer products or indirectly through our professional products and services. We strive to create software that is easy to use, beautiful, intuitive, and the best in our industry. 

We are looking for a senior user experience designer for our Products group. This individual will own the UX design discipline within a cross-functional team charged with developing software for one of our core audiences of individual investors, financial advisors, or other financial professionals. We need a designer who loves the challenge of turning complex data into great communication design, translating usage patterns into intuitive, rewarding interactions and workflows, and working in an incredibly collaborative environment. This position and the full-stack product team is based in our Chicago office. 

Morningstar's unique culture values design and designers as part of our strategic foundation, alongside our technology and editorial/research peers. We expect a desire to dive deep and connect with data and editorial concepts and a passion for all things design visible in your work (or the work you currently direct). We require a love of elegant interfaces, refined typography, and honestly visualized data where others see only numbers. A bachelor's degree and at least 5 years of relevant professional experience is required. 

Some responsibilities required from you… 

• Help define user interaction models and user experience for new and existing products. 
• Sketch and present UX concepts and behaviors with paper sketches, wireframes, task/workflows, simple working prototypes, or whatever form best communicates your ideas. 
• Participate in user-centered research with customers through focus groups, usage analysis, and rapid prototyping. 
• Communicate UX design solutions to multiple development teams through prototypes, detailed specifications and similar types of communication documents. 
• Be an obsessive advocate for user-centered research and for a ‘design thinking’ approach to creative problem solving 
• Use data and experimentation in the design process to deliver on intended outcomes 
• Thrive in an agile work environment, including the ability to embrace iterative product development while maintaining a cohesive and holistic view of the overall design experience 
• Be curious about new technology and pushing experiences to be current and modern 
• Be able to write and present effectively; you’ll need to guide and persuade many opinions
