You understand that it's all about the user experience (online and offline) and how to shape your concepts around it. Your English is fluent (written and spoken), as is your Dutch. Since we work with global clients and a global team, you must be able to work successfully remotely.

  • An open mindset, sense of humor, energy.
  • A well-organised, stress-resistant and strategic approach to your job.
