About you

After a successful first run, we are opening up a new apprenticeship. We start off with a 3 month apprenticeship. The apprenticeship can be extended up to 1 year*.

Requirements

  • Enthusiasm to dive in
  • Proven self-learning initiatives
  • Interest in UI/UX

Why both design and front-end development?

  • You need front-end skills to understand what you are designing
  • You need design skills to design the right thing

Why?

  • This profile is highly sought after
  • At the same time, we have difficulties finding the person with the right set of skills
  • The skills you learn will lay the foundation for your job. After the apprenticeship, the logical next step is an offer for a full-time position at Mono**

What we offer

  • Space to learn
  • Self-directed learning + review of your work by senior designers
  • Work on a mix of real projects and your own project

Our team member Emily had this to say about the apprenticeship.

I switched from a career in finances to a career in UI/UX design. In the apprenticeship programme I learned all the necessary skills to prepare me for a full-time position as a UI/UX designer. Mono has a unique approach, considering development constantly when designing.

The apprenticeship is a paid job. It is a mix of work and learning. We will assess your situation and assess our means to provide compensation. We aim to provide a compensation of at least about 50% of a regular wage, but the specifics are dependent on government subsidies and your personal situation (i.e. unemployment)

*Time depending on approval of government subsidies (IBO/BIS)
**Depending on succesful internship.

Practicalities

You live within reasonable travel distance to Ghent or Antwerp (less than 100km). We expect you to work at the office one day per week. Other days you can work from home, at the office, or on a location of your choosing. This might change based on your seniority level.

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.

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
    • External speakers
    • €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.

  • The right hardware

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

  • Software allowance

    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.
