Since we are continually testing and building new products, you will also create initial visual identities for our new ventures, set up systems and lead the product design process.

You are someone who feels at home in the changing software world, who wants to build high-quality digital products with us and who will preserve our quality standards. You love to experiment, are aware of current design trends yet knows hows to deliver a timeless first-class product. Curious to see what we like in terms of product design?
