Let’s get to know each other. And get ready to make a difference!

Do you have an explorer mindset and want to work in a collaborative organization where your contributions will make a strong impact? Great! We are looking for an experienced Senior Product Designer to support the development and become the strategic contributor of our Design System ✌🏻

If you are passionate about Design Systems, their possibilities & users, skilled in making beautifully crafted interactive experiences, a system thinker, who is able to collaborate with different stakeholders to identify, test and integrate new opportunities, thrive in ambiguity, and understand the big picture while at the same time attending to the details – that’s you, whom we’re looking for!  

We are treating our Design System as a product, creating solutions that allow us to increase our metrics and make the experience of our Designers and Developers better. Your future role is a mix of rapid iteration, long-term strategic bets, and improvements to our existing Design System infrastructure for Web and Mobile Apps. Throughout the design process, you will be accountable for co-creating our design system, setting the visual language, creating design artefacts, and developing concepts that evolve our product in a unified and engaging way.
