About You

You are a creative, conscientious and professional crafts(wo)man. You show a strong passion for digital product design that is supported by thorough research. With the experience you have regarding user research, you know just when to apply specific methods in a project. Being curious and thoughtful, you are focussed on quality, and know how to get stakeholders on board. You have an eye for improvement and won’t shy away from fruitful discussion. You find yourself most energised when you see the connections between different sources and get to communicate these to your team. You love a good challenge and get excited when you move projects towards practical realisation.

Collaborating closely with our clients, you are in a position to build thriving relationships. Your excellent communication skills guide them throughout the project and facilitate decision making, keeping their best interest in mind.

Expectations

    Your strong analytical skills help you understand the information at hand, see connections, and make decisions on what actions to take.
  • You create actionable insights
    Out of data sets big and small you distill actionable insights and present them to clients and the team using tools like Google data studio and tableau.
  • You love to experiment
    Trying out new tools and methods to find ways to improve your work excites you.
  • Collaborator is your middle name
    You work together with stakeholders, developers and data engineers to uncover data and get the right set of data to work your magic. You can make the client see the added value of (and need for) doing research.
  • You have a large toolkit of both qualitative and quantitative research methods
    You have knowledge on analytics, A/B testing, surveys and questionnaires, usability testing, customer journeys, persona’s, card sorting, and more.
  • You have experience with statistics
    You're a wizard with excel. Any knowledge of R, Python or SQL and you will get bonus points.
  • You share what you know
    You enjoy presenting the results of your research to clients in a way it is easy to understand and act upon. When it comes to process, tools, and methods (and celebrate achievements) you love to share this with your colleagues.
  • You have 4+ years experience in UX Research
    Numbers don't prove anything but you have seen your fair share of projects.

About Hike One

We are Hike One, one of the finest teams of digital product designers in The Netherlands. Maybe you’ve ran into us before without knowing it.

We design digital services that not only look awesome but work extremely smooth as well.


Meet your Team

We call ourselves designers. Yet we see ourselves as so much more. We come from all walks of life, we are engineers, explorers, entrepreneurs, teachers, researchers, illustrators, musicians, thrill-seekers and above all else friends. We believe in the following;

  1. 🧠 Being a creative problem solver: A Hiker doesn’t accept how things are given and seeks to constantly pioneer new manners of approaching work, creativity and life in general.

  2. ⛰️ Being open to challenges and seeking them out: A Hiker is comfortable with not knowing what to do or how to do it.

  3. 🏎️ Being a ferrari (Tesla): A Hiker thinks in opportunities and possibilities rather than problems and excuses.

  4. 🤓 Being a nerd: ​​To bluntly put it, Hike One is a gathering of enthusiastic and passionate nerds. 

  5. ✊ Being all about the team: Nothing is great or worth sharing is done alone, it’s all about helping one another grow and celebrating successes together!
