UX/UI Designer+

Job description

You will be our first dedicated UX/UI expert and a bit of a design generalist. Reporting directly to our head of technology, your enthusiasm and talent for making things beautiful across the board will always keep everything fresh and usable! Are your ready to own this challenge and craft the future of design at Safened?

Who are we?

We are Safened - a fast-growing fintech scale-up, motivated by a vision to turn financial risk and regulatory challenges into simple and secure solutions. Simple, because we reduce complexity and offer easy-to-integrate solutions to financial institutions and platform businesses. Secure, because we enable our partners to use the world's most stable asset classes while protecting them from fraud, risk and identity theft.

That sounds like a mouthful, right? Don’t worry, we’re happy to explain it in more detail down the line. For now, just rest assured that we do cool stuff and it’s going well. And we operate globally, with offices in London, New York, Amsterdam, and Barcelona. To get a feel for the atmosphere here, you can check out this video:

Your mission at Safened

While we are innovating banking solutions, your mission is to make sure that the design and usability of our products are at max for any user. In practice, this means:

  • You work with our product owners and developers to guarantee a seamless user experience in mobile, web, and internal portals

  • You present, explain, and defend your design decisions internally

  • You think creatively and evidence-based to identify issues that users might run in to - and recommend solutions

  • You get to experiment with new tech and ideas, tooling is free for you to choose

  • You truly own your tasks and are able to self-manage, adapt to changing requirements, and to think strategically about where our design is going

As we are growing and expanding, we want the look and functionality of our products and online presence to grow accordingly. This means there are plenty of opportunities for you to rethink, redesign, and freshen up what is currently there. Your expertise for what works well and looks good will guarantee that the quality of our services is felt by any type of user: No matter if it's our clients, our client's customers, or future clients trying our demos; no matter if mobile, web, or portals.


What we need you to bring:

  • You have at least 4 years of experience with UX/UI design, more is welcome as well

  • Your repertoire includes experience with both mobile and web design

  • You previously worked with B2B or B2B2C products and/or clients with high standards

  • You have significant knowledge of design software and tools (Adobe Suite/Sketch/Figma/Affinity…)

  • ...and a solid portfolio of design projects that show it

  • You know your way around HTML/CSS/HTML5

  • You're skilled at making things clean-looking and functional

  • You don’t mind working with a minimum viable product / lean startup approach

  • You have great communication skills in English

You get extra points for:

  • Previous experience with Angular

  • Already living in Amsterdam or in commuting distance

  • Dutch and/or Spanish language skills

  • Loving Helvetica at least half as much as our recruiter Nils (just kidding... just don't use Comic Sans!)

What you get from us:

At Safened, we care about attracting and retaining excellent people. That's why we offer

  • The chance to work in a multinational and rapidly growing company that works with leading names in global finance

  • A competitive salary and pension in place

  • 25 days of vacation to recharge your batteries

  • A workplace in a beautiful historic building right in the center of Amsterdam

  • Free tasty and fresh lunch with your colleagues

  • The option to travel to our Barcelona office from time to time

  • Free afterwork drinks in our very own historic bar on Fridays

And because you will have lots of flexibility and responsibility, being our UX/UI designer will allow you to grow and flourish as Safened scales up.

We would love to hear from you, even if it’s just to ask some questions about this job or have an informal conversation in confidence. Just send a short email to Nils, our recruiter on n.arlinghaus@safened.com.

If everything is already clear to you, excellent. Apply right away!
