Designer, UX, Front End Web Developer (Tech & Innovation Fellow)

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is a federal agency founded in 2011 to make financial products and services work better for American consumers. Our mission demands smart, usable, and reliable technology: we’re looking for technologists who want to serve consumers by helping us design and build that technology.

We are now recruiting candidates for the second round of our Technology and Innovation Fellowship, a two-year program for graphic designers, user experience (UX) designers, and front-end developers to work with the CFPB to perform the work of a vital government agency, serve millions of consumers, and support the consumer financial marketplace. Fellows will join the Bureau in January of 2015 and after an initial immersion period will be able to work remotely from anywhere in the United States as long as they have a broadband connection.

We are specifically looking for the following skillsets:

User Experience (UX) Designer: UX designers represent the user’s needs throughout the development process of the CFPB’s products and applications by conducting research, gathering content requirements, determining information architecture, conducting usability tests, and designing interactions, navigation, and interfaces.

Graphic Designer: Graphic Designers use typography, composition, color, imagery, and logos to effectively communicate the Bureau’s mission through its website, software, and print materials.

Front End Developer: Front end developers at the CFPB are responsible for developing and maintaining the interface of CFPB web products. Our front-end team writes template markup, CSS, and JavaScript while ensuring accessibility standards and maintaining a high-quality user experience.

If this is you, we encourage you to learn more about the Fellowship by visiting our Fellows recruitment page at http://www.consumerfinance.gov/jobs/technology-innovation-fellows/

Also check us out on GitHub (https://github.com/cfpb) to see some of our code or GitHub.io (https://cfpb.github.io/) to learn more about the web applications our current fellows have developed and check out our Design Reel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X078IIOqZGE) to see how current fellows have improved the ways consumers interact with the federal government.

The Bureau is an equal opportunity employer. We offer a workplace that is respectful, fair, and values diversity. CFPB offers comprehensive benefits in addition to salary, including: ten paid holidays, ability to accrue up to 13 days of vacation time and 13 days of sick leave each year, a wide range of health insurance plans, coverage for pre-existing conditions, and no waiting periods (we pay up to 75% of your health insurance premium), dental, vision, and life insurance, and flexible spending accounts for health care and dependent care.
