Product Designer (UI/UX)

  • Amsterdam, The Netherlands
  • Full-time

Every day, our talented and multi-faceted team is working on creating the best travel app in the world. From the historical center of Amsterdam we're building the place to go to for travellers that want to plan, track and remember their adventures around the globe. Our rapidly growing team of 12 (and counting!) is on a mission to inspire and connect people through travel. In the last 3 years we have welcomed over 1.000.000 users who added steps in 180+ countries. Our app was featured in Apple's WWDC keynote speeches of 2017 and 2018, and just a few months ago Google created this amazing short video about us. Surely, this puts a huge smile on our face, but our adventure has only just begun!
