A typical career path

  • Junior designer (1200-1400 EUR): You have a growth mindset and work hard to gain experience and improve your skillset. Supported by more experienced designers, you work on rather simple tasks and help with more complex ones.
  • Mid-level designer (1600-2000 EUR): As an independent contributor, you are capable of working solo on projects that are already set up. Apart from moving pixels, you can identify what hypothesis is worth to be tested and design a test to validate it.
  • Senior designer (2250-3000 EUR): Apart from contributing to our most valuable design projects, you can take a leadership role if needed. Whether it’s travelling to meet a client, helping less experienced colleagues or making a design decision, you’ll manage.

All positions include benefits. Senior positions include also equity options. 

Our application process
