DUMBO is a small digital studio based in Cologne, Germany, passionate about building products and services that users love.

We love what we do and are excited about instilling positive change to the product design industry.

We work on complex challenges - which is why we need you.

We need someone to join our interdisciplinary design team. We work on high-fidelity design to turn complex problems into effective and efficient interactions that shape how people progress with digital products today. Therefor UX and visual design are combined into a single design discipline, with assistance from writers and motion designers. Prototyping should happen frequently, and developers should work closely with you.

What you'll do:

  • All we care about is that you stay 100 percent focused on creating great digital products.
  • Iteratively develop initial concepts, user flows, visual design, and prototypes in collaboration with the team.
  • From concept to delivery, attention to detail and concern for design execution are essential.
  • Take part in all phases of the project, from strategy to launch to optimization.

What you bring:

  • Willingness to work in-person at our Cologne office.
  • A desire to actively participate in all aspects of digital product design, including product innovation, product experience, and product vision.
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills in both German and English. You can clearly communicate your design ideas to the rest of the team and our clients, and you strive to create the most effective and efficient user interactions.
  • A portfolio demonstrating your design approach and attention to detail.
  • Solid knowledge of common design and prototyping tools such as Figma, inVision, or Sketch.
  • Passion for good design, determination, and a never-ending pursuit of new skills and personal development.

What you get:

  • A strong team. You don't work with any idiots. We don't hire them and we don't work for them. That's a promise!
  • A creative place to live out your dreams. You'll work in our modern office, which we're constantly expanding into a place where we can live healthy lives and express ourselves creatively.
  • Flexible working hours. We value the fact that your work is a happy part of your life. We provide you and your family the flexibility you need.
  • Our all-in. Our employment contract is intended to be a long-term partnership with you. No time limits. No one-night stands.
  • Flat hierarchies. Whether you're fresh out of college or director-level, you'll always collaboratewith the rest of the Dumbo team and our partners.
  • Your bike is paid for. DUMBO values having a low carbon footprint, so we pay for your bike so you can get to and from the office in the most environmentally friendly way possible!
  • Annual Team Trips. Last year the whole team traveled to Croatia for a week to work on a passion project, the year before it was Austin Texas!
  • Career Development. DUMBO is constantly evolving and it's important that our employees do too! We provide you with the opportunity to focus on developing your professional and personal skills. More importantly, we'll collaborate with you to find a way to put those skills to use at DUMBO.

What you don't get:

  • A freelance job. Success cannot be easily replaced.
  • Decoupled project management. Our work is of outstanding quality. We stay on budget. We are on time. Simply because we make sound decisions by ourselves and know exactly what we’re doing.

Sounds good? We're so excited to hear from you!

We can't wait to meet you soon!
