About you

We are looking for a senior UX/UI designer, specialized in designing digital products and services.

We are looking for someone who is really good at solving interface design problems. Someone who has a keen interest in technology. Someone who studies apps to understand their design patterns, and who has an opinion based on having done the actual work.

You are a self-starter, and 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 be designing yourself. A lot. But you will also be overseeing the design vision in projects and giving feedback to colleague designers.

You can have a proper conversation around design work, whether is 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.

Key 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

Extra pros

  • 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

Practicalities

During times where movement is restricted due to pandemic

You work remotely, preferably from your home office - or a nearby (COVID-safe) co-working space.

If the climate allows (our work rhythm before COVID-19, which we would like to return to)

You live within reasonable travel distance to Ghent or Antwerp (less than 100km). We expect you to work at our co-working office in Ghent one day per week. Other days you can work from home, at the office, or on a location of your choosing.

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

Please contact us with a written introduction in your initial e-mail with your resume in attachment. We require a PDF portfolio or a link to a portfolio website.

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 during the COVID 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.
