Job description

Routinely is building a digitally enabled, personalised skincare brand for the modern consumer. We are based in Amsterdam, backed by a global leader in cosmetics and a venture capital fund and we are looking for stellar talent to complete the core team in the run-up to a public launch in 2021. This is a unique opportunity to join a well-funded, early stage company and collaborate closely with the founders to create a visionary digital product that will change the way in which we care for our skin.


We are looking for a UI/UX designer with 4+ years experience to join our in-house brand, marketing and technology teams. You will be working with us on creating engaging website and app (i.e. cross-platform) experiences. Together we will be figuring out what the future of product will be, in look-and-feel and user journeys. The ideal candidate has strong opinions, loosely hold: you will be a gatekeeper of the end-user journey and are comfortable fulfilling this role. You seek a deep understanding of our customers across Europe and know how to deliver engaging, beautiful and Routinely branded design solutions for them.


The position is full-time and available directly at our headquarter office in Amsterdam. Of course, depending on covid measures, a large part of work can be done from home.

  • Closely collaborate with marketing, growth, customer experience, technology and our Product Manager to get a deep understanding of our users.

  • Actively ask for and give feedback, because you know it will make our work better.

  • Face complicated user-interaction problems, and can come up with simple and creative solutions.
  • With your eye for aesthetics, you deliver a pleasing and usable experience with close attention to details.
  • Setup workshops, brainstorms, design sprints (whatever floats (y)our boat) etc, to get user insights and involve stakeholders early and often.
  • Iterate on and improving our existing design (in Figma, but tooling up for discussion). Our designs should be top-notch and prototypeable, before we hand it over to engineering.


We offer you...

  • The chance to be part of a young and ambitious international team, working with the tech you're passionate about.
  • A role in a fast growing company, where you can contribute strongly to our brand direction, workflow and culture.
