  • Help define the personas and the user flows of the product
  • Ensure the product owner, functional analyst, and development team are aligned on the designs and translation of the users’ needs into the product
  • Validate and adapt solutions with business stakeholders through user testing
  • Implement a user-centered approach to iterate over your solutions
  • Collaborate with the development team and support further developments

Your profile

  • You have a degree in UX or a similar field
  • You’re fluent in English
  • You have at least 3 years of experience as a UX/UI designer or in a similar role
  • You have experience designing technically complex, digital B2B products — not just apps or websites

  • You have experience taking the lead in complex projects and can coach other team members
  • You have a strong portfolio or can show relevant work during the interview process
  • You’re an expert in modern design tools like Figma and Adobe Illustrator (or similar tools like Sketch, Adobe XD, or others).
  • You know how to design and build a design system: experience with one or more design systems is a plus (e.g., Bootstrap, Clarity Design System, Spectrum, Fluent UI, BlueprintJs, ...)
  • You like to turn ideas into wireframes or prototypes to get early user feedback and iterate
  • You focus on building the right thing: understanding the problem is important to you
  • You care a lot about usability and consistency and can create outstanding responsive UIs
  • You know why the optimization of the user experience makes the difference when developing high-performance products
  • You have excellent communication skills; you can coordinate communication plans across teams and towards higher management levels
