The Opportunity:

We’re looking for a Senior Service Designer to join our Client Experience team.

Reporting to the Director, Service Design, the Senior Service Designer is responsible for understanding user needs and mapping end-to-end journeys. You have a track record of making tangible and measurable improvements to experiences through human-centered design.

  • Collaboration – You work collaboratively with others with the common goal of driving positive results. Making meaningful contributions to your team to achieve organizational goals is a priority. You proactively encourage collaboration, build trust and inclusion, and work to establish effective relationships both inside and outside of the organization

    • Plan, perform, and analyze generative research to understand current state experiences: recruit participants, create research plans, facilitate sessions, analyze and triangulate data, and form actionable insights
    • Create and use design artifacts such as personas, ecosystem maps, summary videos, experience maps, and service blueprints to build empathy and momentum to improve current state experiences
    • Lead the end-to-end double-diamond design thinking process with a cross-functional group of designers and other stakeholders, striving for equal input and group consensus throughout
    • Provide mentorship and coaching to other members within Service Design and the wider Client Experience team
    • Be a role model within the Client Experience team in increasing customer centricity and design maturity across the organization
    • Contribute to ongoing service design operations, such as maintaining a digital research repository, updating participant panels, creating templates, reviewing tools, and tracking incentives.
    • Work alongside Digital Experience, Talent, Marketing, Product Owners and the various Lines of Businesses to deliver first-class experiences to our employees and our customers
    • Provide research and design subject matter expertise to other internal departments as required
