We're looking for
Medior Visual/UI Designers
Full-Time | Rotterdam - Amsterdam
As a designer, you already have two or three years of experience under your belt. Moreover, unthinkingly colouring wireframes is not your thing: you have a strong opinion on how to combine storytelling, visual hierarchy and layout to present a good digital product. You’re skillful with a number of tools and softwares (e.g. Sketch, Principle, InVision, Photoshop, Zeplin, Confluence, Jira) and you easily adapt to new developments within your special field. If you’re strongly opinionated, thoroughly want to develop yourself and if you can work in a team where people speak up on design matters, we’re on the same page.
Collaborating closely with our clients, you are in a position to build thriving relationships. Your excellent communication skills guide them throughout the design process and facilitate decision-making, keeping their best interest in mind.
As a (Medior) UI Designer you will create, deliver, and communicate high-quality designs for clients. You are jumping at the bit to hone your already blooming design skills and areas of expertise while having the awareness to seek and carve out the time to grow and expand your knowledge about the digital product design world.
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 endeavors.
Through all of this, you will expand your knowledge of design patterns, wireframes, user flows, prototyping, etc. You will feel yourself becoming an expert in the realm of digital product design in the coming years.
