Lead UX/UI Designer

What you’ll do

You’ll enjoy tackling complex problems as much as we do, creating pragmatic and clever design solutions. Think beyond user flows and design for real-world challenges and tangible business goals.

As a Lead UX/UI Designer at Bolden, you’ll be involved in digital strategy, defining scope and connecting design(thinking) to business goals. You're passionate about digital design and still have a hands-on approach. A real team player who collaborates well with development partners, clients, and other design teams. Providing feedback and mentorship to your fellow designers at Bolden is your second nature.

What we’re looking for

  • 7+ years of experience working on high quality designs using a variety of tools (although Figma is a huge plus)
  • A deep understanding of every phase of a digital (product) design process
  • Experience leading workshops identifying customer needs and stakeholder goals
  • Ability to simplify complex problems and sketch out multiple solutions
  • Strong communication skills: you can explain and document your process, present your work and communicate your design decisions with clarity
  • Experience conducting tests to validate and improve designs

What we offer

We’re proud to have created a positive, friendly and collaborative space to thrive. Here are some of the things you can expect from us:

Work/life balance

Expecting a delivery and need to work from home? Kid’s sick and need to jet? No problem! We’ve always had a flexible approach to working from home and totally understand if you need to stay in or things come up. Life happens.

We stay energised by not working overtime (really, we hate it) and have 25 days of holiday. Lunch is big (and included) at Bolden—working from home is also covered with a daily fee.

A competitive salary

Depending on your experience, skills and leadership qualities—we'll find the right number together.

Collaborative space and hardware

Where you work is just as important as the people you work with. Sitting right on the historic Kostverlorenvaart canal in Amsterdam West, our bright, modern, and colourful studio space is the perfect spot for us to gather and get things done. Less of an office and more of a hub, the space has everything we need to be productive and feel comfortably at home. Of course you'll have a Macbook Pro with a 4K screen and your choice of peripheral included.

Conferences and courses

You'll get a yearly education budget of €500 to go wherever you need to stay inspired.
That could include a Museum Jaarkaart for example, up to you.

Doing things together

We’re definitely close-knit, but not in a weird, creepy kind of way. We genuinely like each other and like to spend time together, whether it's for a quick cappuccino break in the studio or a night out at the latest gallery or museum opening. And with cool clients like Paradiso and others, we have some cool perks to enjoy!


We've been on a successful streak for the past years—meaning we share a studio bonus of a full month salary every January.
