We're looking for a strategic product designer to join our strategy team, to create ambitious visions for digital products, platforms or services.

In this team, you will mostly be working with a cross-functional team (of digital strategists / service designers and enterprise architects) in fast-paced consultancy tracks. Secondly, you also spread the strategic mindset among the designers in our dedicated product teams.


Responsibilities:

 

Provide best-in-class product design

  • You demonstrate a solid skill in solving problems through thoughtful and elegant UX.
  • You can translate visions for digital products/platforms/services in compelling UI.
  • You present your work to the client in well-crafted deliverables such as wireframes, clickable prototypes or concept presentations.
  • Your analytic mindset and critical thinking lead to user-centered solutions.

See the bigger picture

  • However, you understand that great UX is the result of far more than just great interaction or visual design.
  • You start from the Why (i.e. business objectives and user needs), and critically reflect on the best path towards success.
  • You can present concepts in a compelling strategic narrative (vs. as a loose collection of features).
  • You have affinity with user research, service design, business design, platform-thinking.

Take charge

  • Given that you will be working with leading companies on key strategic challenges, you demonstrate a high degree of ownership and responsibility.
  • You are a strong communicator.
  • You do not shy away from uncertainty, but can design a process or workshop to provide that clarity.
  • You can self-manage and coordinate collaboration with the project team (consisting of a strategist and architect).

Coach other designers

  • Whereas your main activities will be to work on timed strategic consultancy assignments, you will also contribute to our Product Design practice.
  • Given your seniority, you also have an evangelising role among your (10+) design colleagues.
  • This means coaching our product designers (who mostly work in our software delivery teams), and mentor them to become more strategic thinkers.

Qualifications:

  • You have a minimum of 3-5 years experience in Digital Product Design or UX/UI Design.
  • You have a solid understanding of user-centered design, usability principles and best-practices in mobile and web.
  • You can express yourself, your ideas and your work fluently in Dutch and English.
  • You are proficient in working with common design tools (Sketch, Figma ...) and prototyping tools (Marvel, Framer, Principle ...).
  • Experience in a consultancy role is a strong plus.
