Traineeship Product Design

Full-time · Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Whether it was that long-cherished dream of using your talent for sketching, that friend who needed a logo for their business, the opportunities you saw in your company to improve the user experience of their website, or that evening course you took. No matter when, where and how your journey commenced; that flame inside you started burning!

But what now? You're at the point where you hope to turn all those efforts, that solid foundation, into a professional career in design. Sounds familiar? Are you looking for a way in? This is your chance to kickstart your career.

Sign up for the Voormedia Academy!

You have your first experience as a UX/UI designer, but now it’s time to take it to the next level. During the Voormedia Academy you will gain practical experience from actual client work, asking the important questions (in both Dutch and English), creating user flows, design systems and turning wireframes into a solid product. You will receive on-the-job coaching from a compact but skilled team including our Lead Designer and the founder of the company. We focus on your personal development as much as possible and have no expectations, apart from you doing your absolute best to be a great colleague and become a good designer.

Little by little you will get to know the various projects that we are running at Voormedia. This way you gain experience in various environments and industries. This could be a product configurator, a dashboard, a SaaS solution for the hospitality sector, etc...

Sounds good, right? Okay, but we hear you thinking right now. "That's great, but after all those hours in the (digital) classroom I was looking forward to finally earning a decent salary." Say no more! From day 1 you will simply be paid accordingly (see conditions below).

So, what's in it for us? Well, we believe in our quality to let junior product designers excel and grow, and hope that after this extensive investment in your personal development from our side, we have also seen each other's value for the longer term. This leads to us both being excited to continue the journey from here.

If not? No hard feelings. Then we even want to support you in your search for your next adventure.
