About the Mobile team
Our guiding principle is that by helping our users we help our business.

You'll be working on the iterative improvements we make as part of our high-speed release cycles, as well as looking ahead and conceptualizing broader changes our mobile app offers across all major platforms. You'll work with developers, product owners, copywriters and user researchers to conceive, analyse & test your ideas.

You are familiar with the state of the art in native mobile app design and you are up-to-date with the latest trends and emerging new user interface patterns.

- You have designed native iOS and Android apps for both phones and tablets. Therefore you are not only aware of the design guidelines of iOS and Android operating systems, but you are also familiar with app specific design patterns.

- You have a solid portfolio with a variety of native app design work which exhibits your user focus
- Familiarity with the the latest technologies and SDK capabilities of iOS and Android is a plus
- E-commerce experience is a plus
- Competitive salary and bonus scheme
- Global relocation package, full support for you and your family
- 26 days paid vacation plus an average of 9 public holidays extra
- Discount on hotel bookings
- Opportunities to attend conferences, internal and external trainings, workshops, etc.
- Vibrant company culture, including our annual Christmas all-hands conference and year-end party!
We offer a competitive salary plus bonuses, with opportunities for career progression within our fast growing company. This position is open to worldwide candidates and in the case of relocation we will assist you with a relocation package insuring a smooth transition to working and living in the Netherlands, where you’ll be joining a team of people from all over the world who now call Amsterdam home.
