UI Designer

We are looking for a UI designer dedicated to making user-friendly and beautiful interfaces.

FULL-TIME · GRONINGEN

What will you do

You will be creating prototypes for new and improved functionality to be added to our products. We like to move fast but accurately and expect you to have the same mentality. You will be working with colleagues in UI design, UX research, with front-end developers, and with customers to confirm that all parties involved are working with the same assumptions and expectations.

Who you are

You are a UI designer skilled at using all the tools of the trade to make user-friendly interfaces based on the design language that we use in our products. You can work methodically to confirm that users understand the designs you make. Designers appreciate you because you understand their vision on esthetics. Front-end developers like to work with you because you understand their job and are able to incorporate their feedback in your prototypes. Users adore you because our products are a delight to use.

Qualifications:

  • You should care about user-friendly, beautiful interfaces
  • Experience with UI design patterns
  • Experience with HTML/CSS
  • User testing prototypes with customers
  • Discussing prototypes with clients and colleagues
  • Experience using software like Sketch, UXPin, Axure, or Adobe Experience

Who we are

We adhere to an agile way of building software. We tweak the process we use to build software as much as the software itself. Call it meta-agile. Seriously though, you should be comfortable in a constantly changing environment.

We work with Holacracy. We are a purpose driven organization where authority is distributed to roles instead of people. We choose not to have managers because we believe that all colleagues use their expertise to make the right decisions regarding their roles and contribute equally to the direction of the product as well as the organization.

We strive for quality over quantity. We share our expertise between developers by reviewing all code before it is deployed.

We are committed to open source software. We share our own software where possible. Actively contributing to open source projects is regarded as part of the job. Because we are proud of what we do, we like to share our knowledge in blog posts and at meetups and conferences.

What we offer

Spindle is a purpose-driven enterprise that wants to connect the world using free (as in freedom) means of communication. We offer you the opportunity to work on software that strives to make sure that communication is always yours and yours alone. We also offer:

  •  A relaxed and welcoming culture with celebrations, events, hackathons, and trips
  •  A competitive salary
  • A good pension insurance
  • An annual study budget and study days
  • 2 weeks of paid leave when a new child arrives in your family
  • An hour of lunch time in which we enjoy a delicious catered lunch
  • A Spindle company bike
  • A sports and wellness subscription
  • An office in walking distance to the train station
