About you

You are a senior UX/UI designer, specialized in designing digital products and services. You speak fluent Dutch and English.

You are really good at solving interface design problems. You have a keen interest in technology. You study apps to understand their design patterns, and you have an opinion based on having worked through problems in the past.

You are a self-starter, an excellent communicator with a passion for great design; and the ability to achieve it. You possess a rare blend of interaction design, visual design, and prototyping skills.

We will provide you with the opportunity to work on interesting problems for various customers. Your work environment will be a liberal one. We value trust over control. Ultimately, people will spend thousands of hours with what you have designed. So you are eager to do some of your best work at Mono.

Job description

As a designer, you have the ability to see a design through from start to finish. You can handle getting a briefing from the customer directly and are comfortable asking for feedback proactively.

You will design digital products yourself. A lot. And you will also oversee the design vision in projects and give feedback to your designer colleagues.

You can have a proper conversation around design work, whether it is created by you or by the project team.

You have experience with both desktop and mobile contexts. Web applications are a big part of the work. You understand how the web works and what the relationship is between code and your design work. You are a master of your design tools and processes, so you feel comfortable enough to focus on solving the design problem itself.

Minimum qualifications

  • 4-6+ years of experience as a designer
  • Solid experience designing digital products
  • Skilled with modern design tools (at Mono we use Figma & Sketch)
  • Experience with both conceptual design and high-fidelity output
  • You speak Dutch and English, basic French skills welcome
  • You have a Bachelor’s degree in a relevant field of study (Interaction Design, CMD, Devine, HCI) or equivalent practical experience

Preferred qualifications

  • You have experience leading small design teams or are willing to grow into this position
  • Ability to express your ideas in code (HTML/CSS/JS or native code like SwiftUI)
  • Experience with conducting research activities such as user research, user interviews or usability testing

Practical

CoViD-19 travel and contact restrictions

You will work from your home office or from a nearby co-working space with proper safety measures in place only. We do this so long as the government requests it, and because it is an effective measure to keep you and your friends and family safe.

When CoViD-19 travel and contact restrictions are eased

We provide the option to work from our co-working office in Ghent or Antwerp one day per week. Other days you can work from home, at a library, or on any location of your choosing that has good WiFi and internet.

Inclusion and diversity

If we want to design products for the world around us, then we need to design those products with a group of people that reflect the world around us. It is not only about race, gender or religious choice. It is about different points of view.

We believe we’ll be better off for it. This means that we make an explicit effort to look for people with diverse backgrounds, but a common interest in design to join our team. And we want to specifically encourage people from underrepresented groups to apply for a job.

How to apply

Introduce yourself briefly and send us your CV & portfolio attached to the e-mail. You can also link to your online CV, portfolio, website, or any other proof that you are the colleague we are looking for.

You can reach us at jobs@mono.company.

Benefits of working at Mono

  • Work on impactful projects

    We’re picky when it comes to what we work on. Instead of working on a banner or landing page that won’t exist in one month, we’re focused on mission critical digital products.

    Help improve the design of the most widely used web-based healthcare software, work on a brand new iOS app for real estate brokers, or breathe new life into aging software.

    It’s a package you won’t easily find elsewhere.

  • Opportunity to learn

    When it comes to this job, you’ll make mistakes. We’ve sure made many over the years. What’s more important is that you know we’ll have your back all the way, and there will be ample opportunity to learn.

    • In-house knowledge sharing sessions
    • Training by external consultants
    • €1000 conference budget/year
  • Remote, but social

    We offer a balance between working from where you want and working in a really nice office. Work from the focus from your own home or surround yourself with people. Apart from the weekly team day, it’s up to you.

    We regularly have lunch together, and it’s on us! Currently our weekly team day is at our co-working office in Ghent.

    (Note: See Practicalities above for how this is handled during the COVID-19 situation)

  • The right hardware

    We will provide you with excellent hardware to get your job done, from well-specced MacBook Pros to 4K monitors to testing devices.

  • No-questions-asked software buying

    Raise your hand if you hate asking your manager to buy a €10 tool that will help you get your work done. At Mono, use the prepaid credit card to buy new shiny things to experiment with. After all, it’s part of your job to stay up to date with the software world.
