  • Level: Medior/Senior level

  • Location: Ghent, Belgium/Amsterdam/Lisbon

Looking for a talented UX/UI Designer to join us on our mission

Teamleader is a Belgian SaaS scale-up founded 10 years ago, with offices in Ghent and Amsterdam. We’re on a mission to become the #1 work management software in Europe. Our products (Teamleader Focus and Teamleader Orbit) help service businesses to manage and stay in control of their business. We’ve grown rapidly over the years and now more than 12K SMEs use Teamleader on a daily basis to sell, bill and organize their work.

Central to our product vision is the transition to a more seamless and intuitive user experience and user interface. We’re looking for an experienced UX/UI Designer to join our product team and take this experience to the next level.

As a UX/UI Designer you will...

  • work in one of our dedicated teams with a product manager & several engineers to identify and solve complex problems – user problems and business problems – in ways that our user love, yet work for our business

  • run the end-to-end design process (design thinking 101) and provide the necessary context to the team about the user needs, workflows & usability challenges

  • manage uncertainty and risk by pragmatically performing user research

  • gather both quantitative and qualitative insights, by directly interacting with customers and prospects and by collaborating with product analysts and customer facing colleagues

  • perform competitive benchmarking to understand industry standards and how we can differentiate

  • translate all these inputs into design solutions that are intuitive and of high usability standards. In this phase, you play a key role in reducing complexity

  • validate these solutions, both internally with stakeholders (CS, Sales, Marketing, etc) and externally through testing or interacting with users in a beta process

  • take part in the delivery process to ensure your solutions get refined, implemented and delivered

  • Follow-up on usage and customer feedback, so you understand the impact of your work and come up with recommendations for further iterations

Why others choose Teamleader: we're lively, not corporate

We have the energy and boldness of a start-up and the expertise and pragmatism of a scale-up. The result: a team of both young and seasoned professionals led by supportive and approachable managers who give recognition and rewards for hard work. You’ll be working in a fast-paced tech environment with open feedback culture and room for initiatives and ideas. On top of that, you’ll get:

  • A liberal training budget to spend as you choose.

  • Ahoy! a mature and ever-evolving design system

  • A hybrid working model, a pleasant mix of office work and home working. Find out more here.

  • A personal tooling budget, to make working from home as comfortable as it is in our offices.

  • Daily budget-friendly freshly in-house prepared lunch and dinner options, as well as Free Food Fridays and Friyays.

  • Competitive and market-conform salary and compensation and benefits, including company car or other mobility options (electrical step, bike,...)

  • Our long-lasting dedication to employee wellbeing, just take a look at our career page and Instagram to see how we keep the Team(leader)-spirit going.

We value diversity

Our ambition is to build a product that helps everyone everywhere (but starting with Europe) to work smarter, so we want our team to reflect that. We believe that a diverse, inclusive working environment is crucial to realise that ambition, so we’re committed to continue to build and cherish a culture where every colleague feels welcome, appreciated and heard.
