Web Designer

Booking.com is looking for the world’s best Designers all around the globe! Join us at our beautiful headquarters in Amsterdam and work on planet Earth’s #1 accommodation website with some of our industry’s smartest people! You’ll be given the freedom to make meaningful and measurable improvements impacting millions of users.

About the Front End team

Our guiding principle is that by helping our users we help our business. As a designer in our Front End team you’ll be a key part of the idea generation process, working in a small startup-like group which takes full ownership of their part of our platform. You’ll work with developers, product owners, copywriters and user researchers to conceive, analyse, hand code & test your ideas.

About You

‘Designer’ is just what it says on your CV – you’d be just as happy to be labeled an Engineer, or Analyst; a Builder, Hacker or Maker. Because what you really do, what you live for, is solving problems. Your portfolio isn’t a series of beautiful but generic templates – it’s a collection of stories that you can discuss with enthusiasm, and regret … because you’re always getting better at what you do and you’re never satisfied with ‘good enough.’. You’re equally comfortable discussing colour theory, user psychology, or the semantic implications of the DIV tag, you’re a writer of excellent HTML & CSS. You’re excited about the endless potential of the web, and being able to build things that millions of people can use every day.

Your skills

Your core responsibility will be in combining your knowledge and expertise with the goals of our business to deliver a world-class user experience to our diverse, loyal user-base. You’ll be comfortable taking a data-led approach to design. You will be a passionate advocate for the user, dedicated to the craft of design and excited about working in an agile, collaborative environment.

Simplicity: Good design is invisible.

Collaboration: You’ll be working alongside developers and copywriters to create elegant user experiences; you should thrive on feedback, critique and iteration.

Visual Design: Photoshop, Fireworks, Keynote, MS Paint – whatever works for you. Your process is your own; you get to decide which tools you use.

HTML/CSS: You’ll be given full ownership of your ideas, and so you’ll be required to both create beautiful mockups/wireframes/prototypes – and implement them.

Required Experience

  • You have a minimum of 2 years UX design experience
  • You’ve Mastered front-end technologies: HTML and CSS
  • You’ve got experience or are enthusiastic to work in a large e-commerce environment
  • You’re excited to learn how to work with our templating and version control systems.

Our Offer

  • Competitive salary and bonus scheme
  • Global relocation package, full support for you and your family
  • 26 days paid vacation plus an average of 9 public holidays extra
  • Discount on hotel bookings
  • Opportunities to attend conferences, internal and external trainings, workshops, etc.
  • Vibrant company culture, including our annual Christmas all-hands conference and year-end party!

Does this sound like you? The perfect candidate has a passion their craft… and a portfolio with examples of your web design work to prove it. Send us a link or upload your work and tell us all about it. Please submit your CV, portfolio and Motivation Letter in English.
