Freelance UX Designer
A Mid-weight freelance UX designer at funda knows UX design is not just about grey boxes and wireframing. It’s also about research, user interface and testing amongst other things. Together with researchers and developers you help to plan and carry out design activities lifting the user experience of funda in Business - the number one platform for commercial real estate in The Netherlands - to the next level.
From improvements to the search experience to how we present these types of buildings and units – you know what works best for our users and will setup the experiments to prove it. But it doesn’t stop there – you will research if we should implement a broker search to find an agent who can help users buy or rent a commercial property and what this should look like to them. Sounds interesting? It is. Read on if you want to know more.
In this role you are expected to work in a scrum team as an independent designer who can manoeuvre well between existing teams. You bring your user-centred approach to the work to design and iterate on new and existing features for the funda in Business platform.
You will carry out research using the most relevant methods and techniques to further your understanding of our users. Like no other, you understand why research is important and you know the ways in which you can use insights to help drive your design rationale and decisions. Understanding our customers behaviour and designing an experience that matches their goals, needs and expectations is worth its weight in gold – and our CEO feels the same way.
As a freelance UX Designer, you work closely with your colleagues Arjan, Rick and Elliot and your Head of Design, Mark. Alongside the Design team you will work very closely with Charley, the Product Owner, working to improve both the offering and the experience. Together, you work across the board on a variety of design projects: you will therefore be working with many more fundarians. You will also work closely with Peter, our Chief Product Officer.
You are a strong team contributor who can use the appropriate approaches, tools and knowledge to ensure we are designing the right thing. You call on your years of experience, data and metrics, along with a healthy dose of intuition to deliver design work that helps us to test and learn with our existing user base.
Being critical and able to see the new is of importance so that you understand what we have now and where we can go in the future. An inquisitive, thoughtful and challenge-driven mind is what makes people at funda tick.
Apart from that, you meet the following requirements:
A qualification in a design-related subject.
3+ years of experience of which 1-3 working at online marketplaces.
A strong portfolio of work which demonstrates your strength in problem solving, product thinking and eye for detail.
You can clearly and confidently explain your design rationale and decisions by communicating verbally and written in clear and concise English. Having an understanding of Dutch is beneficial.
You show lots of initiative and ask a lot of questions because you are both analytical and critical; you consider and are aware of the outside world and interactions with marketplaces and platforms.
You can carry out research by defining questions, collecting and analysing data and interpreting the results; to develop recommendations and actions for design work.
You have experience with analytics and A/B and MVT testing and can setup and administer tests with confidence.
You can piece together feedback from stakeholders across the business and distinguish a clear way of working through it.
You are proficient in software, including Sketch to create designs and screens.
