Job Description

Adyen is looking for a Product Designer who will push boundaries, help Adyen catch up to our design standards and make a strong impact on product execution and quality. Adyen has traditionally been a developer-centric company, but this has been changing since 2013. Nowadays, the Adyen Design teams are full of passionate, talented and great designers and we’re looking for more team members. Acting as a satellite team within the company, we’re on an active mission to raise the bar with smart, delightful solutions that are focused around the needs of our (over) 5000 merchants and which align perfectly with our company priorities.

We’re looking for team members who are hungry, passionate, open, are absolute team players and who are above average mindful about users and technology. Payment products generally aren’t easy. But at Adyen, it’s our priority to make them so and we feel incredibly responsible for that.

An ideal candidate is someone who has an eye for detail, the ability to think and dream big, but who is also able to ship small - adding incremental value rather sooner than later. You have experience with designing for (seemingly) complex products, preferably on multiple platforms. You have the technical know-how to build out prototypes, whether that’s with code or visual tools to help you get there. You understand the need to experiment, to fail and can communicate and translate ideas both as crude as a whiteboard drawing or as fine as high fidelity, detailed interactions with animations.

We value our merchants and team above anything else. You should be an excellent communicator, flexible, open-minded, self-initiating (borderlining entrepreneurial), ready for a fast-paced environment and aim for the most inclusive of attitudes. You are comfortable working closely with other designers, researchers, developers, product managers, amongst other stakeholders that might be helpful for the challenge at hand.

This is what you’ll be doing

  • To understand qualitative and quantitative data insights and translating them into clear solutions
  • To validate and substantiate your own work and ideas, to be the ultimate user advocate, collaborating with product managers to prioritize merchant needs and opportunities
  • To push boundaries of UI/UX/visual execution and to try out new ideas (and fail) regularly. You have a strong ability to dream big and ship small; diverge in concepts and ideas, then converge to feasible and innovative designs
  • Know how to present your work effectively and articulately communicate design choices to other designers and stakeholders
  • To aim for high transparency, inviting and welcoming feedback and demonstrating an open attitude for collaboration.

This is you

  • 5+ years of working product design experience
  • Ability to understand complex feature sets and think big
  • Ability to design for multiple touchpoints (Web, iOS, Android, mobile web, email etc.)
  • Ability to independently generate pixel-perfect production assets with a superb attention to detail
  • Strong information design skills with a solid foundation in UX design principles
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills. You’re not afraid to speak up or voice potentially controversial ideas that you think are important for our users
  • A wizard with design tools: Sketch/Photoshop (and/or Figma)
  • Extensive experience with at least one prototyping tool, such as: Framer, HTML/CSS/JSS, Principle, Invision, Figma, Axure, paper or whiteboard
  • Ability to work well on an egoless, highly collaborative, and cross-functional team
  • Ability to thrive in a fast-paced, dynamic environment. We give a lot of freedom and expect people to handle it well and to their best of intentions

We offer you

We offer a competitive salary, help with relocation and an exchange program to other offices around the world. What we’re actually most proud of is the fact we give you all the freedom you need to shape your own career path. Whether you want to move into a Sales position, take a training (internally or externally), develop yourself as a leader, get better at presenting or take a deep dive and specialise, we love any and every type of personal development and growth. Let’s grow together!
