Senior UX designer, The Hague (NL)

Our product team is growing and we are looking for a talented Senior UX designer to join us in creating a top notch privacy focused email product.

What you tell your friends you do

“I make sure email tools are so easy-to-use that even your Grandma can use them.”

What you will really be doing

How will you be doing this?

You believe that a design process really gets going once a product is in the customers’ hands. Your best work is the result of an ongoing dialog with customers.

We can’t wait to see where you will take us.
