We're looking for
Senior UX Designers
Full-Time | Amsterdam - Rotterdam - Eindhoven
You are a creative and professional crafts(wo)man, with a strong passion for digital product design that is done the right way. To you that is: a solid design proces in which you collaborate closely with the client and include the user. An open environment where team and client look for improvements in both the product and the process, with no fear for a fruitful discussion.
You are the guide for both client and team throughout the project and facilitate decision making. From creating project proposals and discussing the challenge with potential clients, to leading the team towards success on projects. You advise the client on what route to take, set up a way of working for the project team, and know just which methods to use in order to move the project towards practical realisation. You are good at improvising during the project, as you know all the design methods by heart and are comfortable changing the process when a project calls for it.
As a senior designer you will create, deliver, and communicate high-quality designs for clients. You are known for leading project teams and ensuring they deliver the best result possible. In this role you will be a mentor to other designers. Knowing you've only mastered something if you can teach it to others.
Within projects, you skillfully guide clients through the design process as their trusty and reliable point of contact. This is not done alone however as you will embark on these projects with your Hiker colleagues in a team well equipped to tackle the complexities of the project. At times, this may require you to be fully immersed and join a current design team of clients, giving you a taste of how an in-house design team works.
You will work together with a range of varying experienced colleagues a whole lot. As you move from project to project your independence in your role will grow. You will join project & design leads on projects and learn and follow from their lead, while in other instances you will take on the responsibility of delivering quality work to clients. Do not worry though, you will never be on your own as there will always be a Hiker not far away for you to bounce ideas off of and support you in your creative endeavours.
