SENIOR UX/UI DESIGNER

Does the opportunity to introduce fundamental innovations into the global legal sector excite? Do you want to work with an international team of professionals ready to inspire and take you to a higher level? Then this might be the job for you.

Developing a collaboration platform for legal documents (i.e a Gitlab/Github for legal professionals) is an exciting but challenging endeavour. However, we’re an ambitious bunch, so the first version has already been launched and is being used by our clients.

With the first real user data we can take the user experience to an even higher level. And that’s where you come in. We are looking for a senior UX designer with a passion for digital platforms. Someone who is able to create the best user experience based on different user needs. Someone who can see through complex flows but still manages to design intuitive user journeys and interfaces.

Our development stack

The basis of our platform consists of an Angular front-end that communicates with our primary PHP API. For our Machine Learning we use Python and all modern techniques to create our models. We also use PostgreSQL, Elasticsearch and Airflow on a modern Kubernetes cluster. We are taking great steps with Knowledge Graphs, a scalable architecture (including Kafka, CQRS, Event sourcing etc).

A fool with a tool is still a fool, but our favourite UX/UI tools are: Pen and paper 😉 , WireframePro for Low-fi  and Figma for High-fi prototyping. Photoshop & Illustrator we love.

New technologies that help improve our platform are cool, we are curious about what you bring to the table.

Live and work in the Netherlands

Persons who do not have the nationality of an EU/EEA country or Switzerland are also more than welcome to apply! We are a Sponsor (in Dutch: Erkend Referent) recognised by the Dutch Immigration and Naturalisation Service, and as such can offer a fast-track procedure for a residence permit in the Netherlands for you and your family. We also offer support with all related matters, such as housing and health insurance.
