Junior Designer

Job description

Wanted: Junior Designer

 

Dare to jump? Are you interested in joining a hyper growth SaaS scale-up in Amsterdam? After a further $15mn of funding, team expansion is of key importance for us. Harver, an unusual recruitment software company is searching for a Jr. Designer who’s ready to kick his/her career into fifth gear and help us disrupt an industry.

 

Who are we?

 

Harver is an extraordinary recruitment software scale-up. Together, we enable global, innovative organizations like Heineken, Booking.com and Netflix to hire better and faster. You'll be able to tell people that you work for an organization that has proven software that removes subconscious bias from recruitment processes. Together, as a team, we help companies build more diverse, inclusive teams. How? Our software uses scientifically backed data to make hiring decisions based on skills. Just imagine a world where teams are hired based on ability and personality and not on their resume!

 

  • Placing a focus on skills-based hiring, personality assessments and ditching CVs means we are giving people a fair chance, resulting in improved company performance and happy people.
  • Did you know companies are 35% more likely to outperform the national average with a diverse team? 
  • Just under 100 employees globally, 60 employees in Amsterdam and aiming for 100% growth year-on-year and a recent series $15mn funding injection, it’s fair to say that everyone here is passionate about the future
  • Check out our product being utilised by Netflix and Heineken

 

Your new office

 

Just imagine.. after a short walk from Central Station, the fist bump or hug welcome after which, Rik (our legendary Office Manager) will show you our magical views of the IJ from the 7th floor. You will see the cliche ping pong and foosball table but most people like to try out the Harver swings first. There's space for you to sit in the sun and there are delicious (free) lunches (thanks Rik!). When you come along on our journey, you'll soon meet the sky diver, the DJs, the clan of Game of Thrones enthusiast, the judo guy, the painter and board game fanatic. Your first task; figure out who’s who.

 

Your impact as our new Jr. Designer

 

What will you do? Well first of all, you’ll learn everything there is to learn about all the different aspects of design within a SaaS company. You’ll collaborate with product, marketing, implementations, sales, you name it. Whenever something beautiful needs to be created, you’ll be involved. Don’t worry though, you don’t have to do it all by yourself. Our very own Karim Dahhani, will guide and assist you on your road to success within Harver. Together with him, you’ll be: 

 

  • Assisting the marketing team with designs for harver.com, ebooks, whitepapers, press releases and more.
