Your role

As a Junior Designer at Mijksenaar, you’ll be involved in all aspects of the project process, so your day-to-day will be much more than just 2D or 3D design work. You’ll frequently be involved in research or collecting design precedents, writing analysis reports, collaborating on design strategy, mocking-up presentations, field studies and liaising with clients. We’re looking for someone who’s eager to learn, takes initiative and brings a unique perspective and skillset to our fast-growing team.

Your Profile

  • Undergraduate or masters degree in industrial design, communication/graphic design, experience design, architecture, digital media, urban design or comparable field;
  • 2+ years experience in a wayfinding office or a related design office;
  • A thorough knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite;
  • You are creative and analytical, passionate and strive for the best result;
  • You are proactive and curious, you like to push boundaries;
  • You meet your deadlines and do not have a ‘9 to 5’ mentality;
  • Speaking Dutch is a plus, but (definitely) not a requirement – Our New York office speaks English, Spanish, and German.

Conditions of employment

Your salary will be commensurate with your education and work experience.
