We are Hike One. We are probably the largest design focussed agency in the Netherlands. With 65+ people of whom at least 50 are designers, we literally put design first. We love to make technology work for people and we love to make it as simple as possible. We work for some truly great clients like Marktplaats, Signify, Liberty Global, Heineken and Rituals.
Our team in Europe's most innovative, leading technology city, is growing fast. Our brand new office is located in the creative area of Strijp-S, in the revived former Philips Microlabs building.
You know Sketch and InVision, and you gave Framer a go. Wireframing is something you could do with your eyes closed. You've ran couple of Usability Tests before and you know what matters most when conducting it. You are confident in hosting and facilitating workshops. At the start of a project, the first thing that comes to your mind is finding out what the real problem is.
You know how to set up your own work process and how to advise your client in this. You’re resourceful: if a problem arises, you’ll come up with three possible solutions. Taking up an active role is something you do naturally. And if you see that things could be done in a better way, you change it.
Are you thinking “Yes, that's me” at this point? Then keep on reading: we’re looking for you!
At Hike One, you’ll be doing lots of different things. Maybe you’ll create a new digital brand for a start-up in two days. Or you start your week with a design stand-up in the scrum team of a client. Together with your team members, you’ll look for the best solutions to tickets on the backlog. You could also take over from a colleague on a long running project. Your fresh approach will be very valuable.
Most importantly, you’ll be working with lots of interesting companies. You will most likely work at their office for a while. On the other days you get to work from our new office at Strijp-S: Microlab. If you come on board, you have the chance to build up your portfolio with outstanding projects. Your future colleagues have created hundreds of products over the last years, such as great new mobile apps for Ziggo, Buienradar, and ANWB. Or Drop&Fly, a terrific self-checkin luggage system for airports. Also, a new website for Funda, the biggest real estate website of the country.
Isn’t that great! Now, let’s talk about what you’ll get in return for all your hard work. Of course there’s a monthly salary and 25 days holiday a year. You’ll get an annual budget to use for education purposes and a top-notch MacBook including every tool you need. If you run into a sweet new tool that we weren’t aware of yet, we’ll make sure to get it for everyone at the office. And who knows, maybe you can give a lunch lecture on your new discovery.
But wait, there's even more:
