Senior UX Designer - Ecommerce

FULL-TIME · AMSTERDAM

Who are you?

You are an enthusiastic and motivated Senior UX Designer. You like tackling complex problems by providing the easiest and most delightful solutions to our users. The user is at the core of what you do but you balance your creativity with a commercial mindset focused on results and speed in the delivery of solutions.


What will you be doing?

Your main focus will be the improvement of VakantieVeilingen and Vavabid, our B2C auction labels for leisure and travel. Optimizing a fast-paced auction website and app will bring you UX challenges that you have never encountered! Emesa is definitely not like every other e-commerce platform in the market.

You will be working on every UX aspect - from big functionalities to small improvements. Some examples? Create a new auction model, find ways to make our bidding process more fun or design a way to make our platforms more local.

You will be coordinating the design process from the definition of the design problem to the cross-device final designs. These will be A/B tested so you will have the chance to test the effectiveness of your designs and learn more about our users every week! In addition to this, you will define how and when we should use user research whether in-house or externally.

You will make wireframes, write requirements and UI specifications, working closely with a Visual Designer, a Conversion Specialist, Product Owners, Copywriters and two agile teams of Frontend Developers (web and app). Next to this, you will make sure designs are developed as intended by reviewing the work of the developers.

Gaining experience on a complex platform like ours will make your previous e-commerce tasks feel like a walk in the park. In other words, we offer a great learning place!
