UX designer

Job description

THIS IS YOUR JOB

In a nutshell: you do everything in your power to improve and optimize the user experience of Effectory clients. By organizing workshops and or design sprints you gather feedback from stakeholders and users as well as analyze user data. This information feeds your ongoing exploration into different approaches to solve end-users’ problems, infusing usability research and improvement of existing applications as well as the development of new interaction designs for the Effectory product portfolio. In this leading role, you set up and supervise a thorough design process and ensure that stakeholders, product owners, our development team and the UI designer are all involved, each in their assigned role in a project. You deliver clear prototypes and wireframes and are eloquent in substantiating your design choices, getting your stakeholders on board.


THIS IS YOU

You have a passion for cool and effective user-friendly products. You get your hands dirty: you can make prototypes (e.g. Sketch, Axure) and wireframes (e.g. Sketch, Figma) and work as hard as anyone to improve the customer experience to the max. Since you’ve been working in a similar role for – at least – the last 5 years, with lots of experience in conducting usability research and SCRUM, you are considered a senior in your field. You show natural authority in running the design process from set-up to delivery and can easily adapt in changing contexts and to different stakeholders, users and colleagues. With your excellent communication skills, in both Dutch and English, you manage to enthuse all involved in getting the best result possible.


Requirements

THIS IS US

Effectory – Europe’s leading feedback specialist – is a thriving company with more than 150 entrepreneurial, young and ambitious professionals who help big and medium sized companies to collect feedback and ideas from their employees. Our mission is to work on making the working world better. Based in the center of Amsterdam, Munich and Cape Town, our multi-disciplinary and self-managing teams collaborate with more than 800 clients in ‘industries’ as varied as Retail, Production, Services and Non-Profit in over 70 countries. 

Historically we have a strong foothold at the Dutch market which was our place of birth and we can't be stopped! To meet our growth ambition, we are determined to only hire eager and enthusiastic employees - both starters and experienced workers - who help infuse our business with even more energy.  


THIS IS WHAT WE OFFER

While working from our wonderful office overlooking the Amsterdam canals (Cultural Heritage), you’ll have a front row seat in one of the most progressive thinking and mission driven companies -- but you won’t be sitting still. After you are onboarded to fully grasp your role in fulfilling Effectory’s mission, you can make use of extensive professional and personal development opportunities, on and off the job. And with hard work should come fun: Friday drinks, legendary office parties, our Annual Big Day, team sport initiatives like the ‘Dam tot Dam’-run, our own boat to cruise the canals of Amsterdam and an organic lunch served daily. That, topped with 25 days off plus a competitive salary and a fair piece of the profit-pie… need we say more?
