Barclays, one of the world’s largest and oldest financial services providers, has recently expanded their IT operations in the U.S. We (Barclays) have recently opened a Mobile & Digital Technology Center, in Plano, and we are looking to add a Sr. UX Prototyper to our team! We are in the process of building out a Prototyping Center of Excellence, and we are looking for someone who’s comfortable creating executive concept demos. We are a fast-paced, Agile environment, and we are looking for someone, who is very comfortable working in very short sprints (2-3 months). If you are strong in JavaScript, HTML5 and CSS3 and you are open to permanent / full-time opportunities, I’d like to connect!

Your work will be impactful and highly visible to Barclays’ executive leadership.

·         Minimum 1-2 years experience leading or mentoring a small team of developers.

·         Minimum 1-2 years experience of demonstrated ability to communicate and present complex products services and features in a simple, intuitive and engaging manner to a variety of stakeholders including senior management.


Preferred qualifications:
