Roles and Responsibilities

Special projects @ HDFC Life

HDFC Life has continuously innovated with a futuristic mindset and led the industry in this area. One of the mandates of the team (us!), rolling into the CEO’s office, is to work on cutting edge ideas in the area of life insurance.

We are responsible for conceptualizing new ideas through consumer research and market intelligence, and also testing these ideas through an iterative pilot-feedback-repeat loop. We are (thankfully) empowered individuals who like to think of ourselves as “idea owners”, with the ability to think differently, challenge the status quo and with a bias for action.

If you are passionate about using technology to create a differentiated &user experience through superior design and interface on digital applications (e.g., website, mobile app etc.) or if continuously improving customer experience through iterative feedback on user requirements excites you, then do reach out to us. This role will give you a high degree of freedom and exposure to drive end to end product design along with a fair amount of accountability.

Education: Engineering from a tier 1 school

Experience:6- 8 years’ experience (mandatory) in designing highly scalable product in a B2C environment

Location: Mumbai

Your role

  • Gather and evaluate user requirements, in collaboration with business leads & engineers
  • Illustrate design ideas using storyboards, process flows and sitemaps
  • Design graphic user interface elements, like menus, tabs and widgets
  • Build page navigation buttons and search fields
  • Develop UI mockups and prototypes that clearly illustrate how sites function and look like
  • Create original graphic designs (e.g. images, sketches and tables)
  • Identify and troubleshoot UX problems (e.g. responsiveness)
  • Conduct layout adjustments based on user feedback
  • Adhere to style / brand standards on fonts, colors and images

What are we looking for?

Technical skill requirements

  • Experience in design for Retail Experience, Information Design, Interaction Design, Universal Design, User Experience, Visual Design
  • Strong understanding and experience of design tools like Sketch, Invision, and Adobe Xd

Attitude / behavioural requirements:

  • Self-starter attitude; curiosity and passion to take on challenges and deliver results with minimum direction
  • Bias for action (knowing when to trade off perfection for timing; getting things done)
  • Ability to prioritize in an ambiguous environment
  • Out of the box thinking, clarity in thought (great to have wacky ideas, but you should be clear of your wacky ideas)
