Senior UX Designer

At Owl, we tackle one of the most difficult challenges facing insurers around the globe—the right way. We are committed to using data and AI ethically, so insurers and their clients are comfortable with these technologies, and no longer have to pass the costs of malingering, exaggerated, and criminal claims onto their policyholders and bottom-line. We're venture-backed and have already acquired some of the largest insurers as paying clients.

Owl is seeking a versatile UX professional to advocate for what customers want, need and expect from the product we create. You will be comfortable working independently as well as part of a team to ideate, wireframe, prototype solutions and follow through to production to ensure these solutions are implemented as designed. You demonstrate a strong understanding in all UX areas including research, conceptualization, system modeling, UI design, prototyping, testing & validation. You have deep rooted design instincts and pride yourself on your technical understanding of software delivery. Your ability to apply design thinking enables you to solve complex problems while remaining flexible, adaptable and focused in sometimes ambiguous situations.

  • Advocate for our customers by gaining a deep understanding of their work and the challenges they face
  • Collaborate with design, research, product management, and engineering teams to deliver elegant and engaging end-to-end user experiences across multiple screens and input modalities.
