Service Designer E-commerce in Amsterdam - Servicekantoor

If you live in the Netherlands, you have probably been to one of de Bijenkorf department stores. If so, you know that we take pride in creating a magical atmosphere in the store and let every customer feel special. At deBijenkorf Ecommerce department we strive to translate this magical and special experience to our customers online. Will you join our Design team to help achieve this vision?

About de Bijenkorf E-commerce organisation

At the headquarters of the Bijenkorf, our E-commerce department is our youngest and fastest growing department. A passionate, multinational group of over 140 professionals work together on the continuous growth and improvement of our digital platform. Because of the positive growth and exciting developments we are looking for a Service designer to join our team of designers at de Bijenkorf.

Are you passionate about problems and finding different ways to explore root-causes, side-effects, and always asking ‘why’? If thrown a complex process at you, do you rise above it with a creative but simplistic explanation? Do you like to nerd out over the customer insights you explore throughout a customer’s journey? Are you a thorough, lateral thinker, who can pull up your sleeves and dig deep to deliver rewarding experiences? Are you so passionate about Service Design that everyone you talk to is immediately convinced about the value of using design-thinking to solve problems and improve products and services?

Then this is the ideal role for you!
