Are you a senior designer who wish to craft valuable experiences in an interdisciplinary and ambitious environment? It might be you we’re looking for! Making Waves is currently hiring Interaction Designers, Service Designers and Visual Designers.
What will you do?
Your main responsibility will be to work with design from start-up to realization of a product or service. You will plan and lead the design process from user insight, concept development, detailing and prototyping to testing and implementation. You will be working in teams alongside other designers, developers, analysts and product managers, and collaborate closely with our clients.
As a senior designer, you are a valued mentor for younger designers, and an inspirational driving force of human-centric/design thinking processes, as well as for the development of our professional practice.
You’ll be an important part in developing good client relationships that form the basis for long-term partnerships. From time to time, you’ll also be involved in sales pitches that will secure good assignments and commitments.
As a Visual Designer you will…
- create engaging visual experiences that both support and enhance functionality and strengthen the customer's brand

It is important that you have a strong portfolio with an emphasis on digital products and services, that demonstrates your ability to do user insight, research and analysis, and describes your talent for concept development.
Rapid prototyping and testing is your preferred way of working, and Sketch is likely a favorite tool. You’re passionate about your craft, believe in diverse thinking and are able to lead a process that suits both the team and task ahead. You’re professionally curious and ambitious, and believe it is essential to keep developing your skills and knowledge.
You dare to challenge norms, like to experiment and to be challenged by viewpoints different from your own. You create strong concepts, that both exploit the capabilities of new technology and support business strategies. You love your craft and gladly share your knowledge with others.
