Position Summary

As a key player in the digital transformation strategy of IHS Markit’s Engineering and Product Design Team, this designer role will push the boundaries of a traditional UI role.

Using an artist’s eye for design, you’ll bring to life beautiful, intuitive and creative designs that will be awe-inspiring. Working directly with both Engineering and Product, you’ll be empowered with the creation of the UI design and implementation of our platform, in an iterative agile fashion. If you’re up to the challenge of creating magic through design, then this is the role for you!

  • Analyze product performance and customer needs through quantitative and qualitative methods.
  • Use Agile methodologies to deliver and iterate on new features at a fast pace.
  • Demonstrate strong leadership and communication skills. Be a thought leader who can see overarching goals and opportunities, while also acting as a practitioner who can meticulously work alongside his/her teams with domain knowledge and design prowess
  • Strong understanding of emerging trends that will inform development of best in class, user-centered design experiences
  • Build close relationships with product, marketing, and sales to understand strategies to ensure user experiences are designed in alignment with those strategies

  • Portfolio for reference
  • 3+ years of experience in user interface design, product design, interaction design, and/or visual design
  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent professional experience
  • Experience and expertise in visualizing Big Data
  • Experience working in an Agile / Scrum development process is a plus
  • Ability to create user-interface designs in the form of wireframes, mid-to-high-fidelity screen designs, or prototypes using Axure, Sketch, InVision, proto.io, Figma, or the Adobe Creative Suite
  • Experience with front-end frame works, including the ability to rapid proto-type via CSS/JS is a massive plus.
  • Ability to think strategically and execute methodically
