Senior UX designer

Job description


In a nutshell: you do everything in your power to improve and optimize the user experience of Effectory clients. You gather user insights through user research to feed your ongoing exploration into different approaches to solve end-users’ problems. By organizing and facilitating workshops and or design sprints you gather feedback from stakeholders and users. Through prototypes, wireframes, user flows etc. you are able to create and present concepts and recommendations in a compelling and impactful way, getting stakeholders on board. You navigate the balance of customer needs, client objectives and the requirements of the team throughout a project and support research into industry trends and competitive information.


You have a passion for cool and effective user-friendly products, especially SaaS. You get your hands dirty: you know what it takes to make effective prototypes and wireframes (tools like Figma, Sketch, XD, Invision hold no secrets) and work as hard as anyone to improve the customer experience to the max. Since you’ve been working in a similar role for – at least – the last 5 years, with lots of experience in conducting usability research and SCRUM, you are considered a senior in your field. You show natural authority in running the design process from set-up to delivery and can easily adapt in changing contexts and to different stakeholders, users and colleagues. With your excellent communication skills you manage to enthuse all involved in getting the best result possible.



Effectory – Europe’s leading feedback specialist – is a thriving company with more than 160 entrepreneurial, young and ambitious professionals who help big and medium sized companies to collect feedback and ideas from their employees. Our mission is to work on making the working world better. Based in the center of Amsterdam, Munich and Cape Town, our multi-disciplinary and self-managing teams collaborate with more than 800 clients in ‘industries’ as varied as Retail, Production, Services and Non-Profit in over 70 countries. 

Historically we have a strong foothold at the Dutch market which was our place of birth and we can't be stopped! To meet our growth ambition, we are determined to only hire eager and enthusiastic employees - both starters and experienced workers - who help infuse our business with even more energy.  


While working from our wonderful office overlooking the Amsterdam canals (Cultural Heritage), you’ll have a front row seat in one of the most progressive thinking and mission driven companies -- but you won’t be sitting still. After you are onboarded to fully grasp your role in fulfilling Effectory’s mission, you can make use of extensive professional and personal development opportunities, on and off the job. And with hard work should come fun: Friday drinks, legendary office parties, our Annual Big Day, team sport initiatives like the ‘Dam tot Dam’-run, our own boat to cruise the canals of Amsterdam and an organic lunch served daily. That, topped with 25 days off plus a competitive salary and a fair piece of the profit-pie… need we say more?
