Marktplaats. We’re looking for a…
Only a 2 minute walk from Amstel Station in Amsterdam, The Netherlands
We’re on a journey to bring design thinking to every corner of Marktplaats. Because design isn’t just about crafting pixels or making products, it’s about creating possibilities. Do you want to join the design team at Marktplaats and help us create a truly meaningful experience?
Help shape the future of Marktplaats!
As a Product Designer you’ll be part of a team of 4 (and growing). Together you drive the design vision and execution of Marktplaats.
You inspire and collaborate with cross-functional teams. You take responsibility for your product and its experience and care for it from beginning (research, strategy, concept) to end (design and implementation). Through qualitative and quantitative research you truly understand the customer, its background and needs. You identify your riskiest assumptions and plan to validate them through prototypes or A/B testing in collaboration with developers. You articulate design rationale to support your decisions and vision, and ensure stakeholder satisfaction by balancing user needs and business goals.
What you bring as a Product Designer
- Own all aspects of design: comfortable from concept to interaction to copy to visual, but you excel in one or two areas
- Design for Android, iOS and web, with a focus on small screens
- Inspire and collaborate with people to create the best work we can
- Communicate ideas, vision and arguments clearly and consistently
- Switch between long term vision and short term tactical steps
This is what you get at Marktplaats
You’ll work in an environment that is focused on learning quickly through experimentation combined with delivering truly delightful experiences for our users. We’re pushing the boundaries in what it means to be an online marketplace and that requires vision, a healthy dose of failure and great people who care about the smallest bits and pieces.
About the design team
We are a relatively new and young team with a goal to bring strategic design and world-class design execution to our products. Together with Product Management we are leading the discovery of new opportunities to accomplish our vision.
We are cool kids and use Abstract, Sketch, Wake, InVision, Principle, and whatnot daily. We don’t really care about process – we care about getting things done – but we do see process as a prerequisite for great work delivered fast.
