UX Designer

Job description

About us

Buying a domain name is needlessly complicated. And selling domains? Not much easier.

So we started Dan! The no-nonsense domain trading platform.

We’re on a mission to make domain name trading available to everyone. Easy, fast and secure. And, most importantly: transparently. Because we believe transparency is the key to a better domain world. That’s why we do what we say. And we say what we do.


The role: UX Designer

As our UX Designer, you are responsible for our end-users experience of our Marketplace & Customer Area. You work very closely with the product team and you play a particularly important role during key stages of product development. From the initial design and proof-of-concept phase, you translate the goal of the product into a functional user experience and user test is as soon as possible. During and after development you sit next to the developers to make sure your requirements are in place for users to achieve their goals.

In return, you’ll gain access to one of the most fun, open, and ambitious groups of people working in Amsterdam. We push each other to be our absolute best and are the kind of company that will make you feel happy getting out of bed every morning.

This role reports to the Head of Brand & Design and is located in beautiful Amsterdam.


What you’ll do

  • Own the design, from start to finish, from Figma file to production deployment;
  • Own and help set up the entire design process from idea to implementation and everything that entails - research, UX design, UI design, user testing together with your design & product teammates;
  • Get everyone at all levels, excited about your work through presentations, and reviews;
  • You’re customer-centric with a good understanding of different research and testing methods, including when and how to use them;
  • Organize your work clearly in layers, component libraries, design systems, and roadmaps;
  • Define and refine our design language and style guide together with the colleagues in design;
  • You take an iterative approach and move quickly from idea to validation, keeping timelines clear and manageable in a fast-paced environment.

Job requirements

What you’ll bring

  • 5+ years working experience as a Product or UX Designer, preferably in SaaS products;
  • Portfolio demonstrating how you solved challenging design problems;
  • A true focus on the user —you make your design decisions based on research, including interviews, usability testing and quantitative data;
  • A passion for the "why" of design, as well as the "what”;
  • Persuasive: able to influence and convince others to pursue a course of action;
  • An egoless attitude toward design, a passion to learn and grow every day, and an interest in sharing your learnings with your peers early and often;
  • You don't run off a cliff when your hair's on fire: think, count to ten, then act.


How we work

From our industry-improving products to our videogame competitions, our company culture is busy, productive and fun.

At Dan, we work, grow and build fast. Shaking up the industry and making a splash. We’re dreamers who roll up their sleeves and do the work. And transparency is our thing.

We think being kind is cool. That’s why we uplift instead of compete against each other. Unless we’re playing FIFA or frisbee.


Psst … some added perks

  • Top notch equipment
  • Free lunch and healthy snacks, every day. Yup, you read that right!
  • Friday after-work drinks at the office
  • Company and team outings (from dinners and paintball to gaming and movie nights — and everything in between)
  • A game room for our Fifa tournaments
  • A team of (fast-)forward-thinking, talented and fun colleagues from all over the world!


Are you interested?

If you think you’re a match for this role and can bring some great skills to the Dan team, please apply! We’re excited to get to know you.

Please note that applications without a portfolio (attachment or online) will not be considered (this is a designers position, after all).


Relocating?

Sure! If you join Dan from abroad, we offer to sponsor your Visa for NON EU citizens, as long as you agree to move to The Netherlands within 6 months.

If you are joining us from a country that doesn’t allow traveling to the Netherlands just yet due to Covid-19 restrictions, there’s a chance that your onboarding could take place remotely. We had lots of new team members starting their Dan-journey remotely already and so can you!


Note for recruiters: we unfortunately can’t respond to cold calls or emails. But thanks for your interest!
