UX Designer

We are looking for a talented UX Designer to join our team in Amsterdam

FULL-TIME · AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS

We define, design and develop all things digital

Bakken & Bæck is a digital product development studio working out of Oslo, Amsterdam, Bonn and London. In close collaboration with ambitious clients, we design and build digital solutions and businesses from end to end. You might have seen our work for Vipps, Coinbase, Samsolgt, Morgenlevering, and Kron or stumbled across some of our own previous ventures like Wake.

When we are not making world-class digital products, we are dedicated to making a friendly and inclusive workplace. We do trips, conferences and events together on a regular basis, and we are always committed to cultivate a company that embraces differences. We strongly believe in flexibility, and know that creativity doesn’t necessarily always happen between 9 and 5. At Bakken & Bæck you’ll be given a lot of freedom while translating complicated problems into easy-to-use products. This means managing your own priorities, trying out new things and working a flexible hours' scheme.

Design is at the heart of everything we do. 

About the role

As a UX Designer on our team, you’ll be involved in strategy and concept development, researching user and business needs, and designing elegant, easy-to-use solutions to meet those needs. Together with product managers you'll play a key part in seeing a project through: from the very first brief to launch and beyond. Within the team your role will focus heavily (but not exclusively) on the early stages of the process - defining the product, working with clients to define scope, and deep dive into user research.

We’re looking for someone who enjoys tackling complex problems, and designing smart and simple solutions. Thinking beyond the ideal user flow and designing for real-world scenarios is important to us, as is being a team player who can collaborate well with developers, clients, and other designers.

Qualifications:

  • Designing user flows and interactions for complex digital products.
  • Experience working with every phase of the product design process:
  1. Leading interviews and workshops to understand customer needs and stakeholder goals
  2. Using your insights to help define a scope and strategy for the product
  3. Working with others to translate your designs into detailed mockups and high-level prototypes
  4. Creating and conducting user tests to validate and improve your designs


  • Strong communication skills: you can explain and document your process, present your work and communicate your design decisions.
  • Proficiency in Sketch/Figma and have the ability to see what tools fit the job.


Bonus if you have an interest in and/or experience with:

  • Writing UX copy
  • Running smaller projects by yourself
  • Working with AR/VR/Machine learning

Perks and Benefits

We take great pride in making Bakken & Bæck a friendly and inclusive workplace, and we care for both your professional and personal well-being. Here are some of the things you can expect if you join us:

  • Doing things together
    Working across offices, we like to get together as often as we can. Yearly trips, meet-ups, parties, dinners or even work on an interesting project. We’ve previously hosted a one-day conference called An Interesting Day and we have an event series called DDD (Define, Design, Develop) where we invite people from different industries to talk about a specific theme.
  • Power your own ideas
    Do you have a project you've always dreamed of? A company you admire, or a problem you are dying to solve? At B&B you'll have a say in what projects we take on.
  • Remote when you need
    Sometimes we wish to work from home or some other place like a cabin or your parents' house. We try our best to keep location from obstructing collaboration.
  • Parental leave and baby bonus
    We got the moms and dads in the company to design our own “baby kit”, that includes a €2000 bonus, so you can get a head start on your new parental adventures.
  • Keep it healthy
    We provide an extensive support package that includes a solid health insurance, sponsored therapy sessions, access to physiological treatment and a lot more.
  • Conferences and courses
    You'll get a yearly budget of €1500 to go wherever you need to stay inspired and learn new things.
