Design Lead (m/f/d)


Do you believe we can build more beautiful software? Do you regard yourself in design more as a scientist than as an artist? Are you as enthusiastic as we are about technology, UI/UX, and digital platforms? Are you looking for a team and company that walks that extra mile to deliver truly and brilliantly simple results?

  • Re-draft and re-launch our company and product websites
  • Help us re-brand Yatta by co-creating and renewing our brand and product design across all media and channels

  • Collaborate with our co-founders, software engineers, marketeers, and writers to develop and implement pixel-perfect designs
  • Contribute to the team by leading our design approach and culture, day by day

Your education and prior experience should include

  • Postgraduate in graphic design, communication design, interaction design, digital media or similar
  • At least 4 years of relevant work experience in design (preferably in agencies, design-orientated companies or start-ups)
  • Safe handling of common wireframing and design tools such as Figma, Sketch, ?Adobe CC, etc.
  • Basic understanding of HTML, CSS, and web frameworks. - Note: This is not for developing but for working most efficiently with our web and front-end developers
  • The rare ability to envision design as a system with implications on future outcome and deliverables - ideally backed by experience with software design systems, libraries, and components
  • Strong analytical skills to transform complexity into design that works and inspires
  • A keen eye for aesthetics, usability and typography with a penchant for precision and detail, to the point of perfection
  • Interest in topics and products from the tech, start-up, and development environment
