Are you looking for an opportunity to be a game-changer? A true innovator? If yes, WE ARE LOOKING FOR YOU!

As a Senior UX Designer, you will be part of a project that has never been done before at GrandVision. In these exciting times, we are building a complex eCommerce platform that connects all our best brands in one single place. You will use your problem-solving skills to the maximum and your ability to use data to understand what are the key issues related to design that our customers may encounter when interacting with our new platform. You will act as a real detective – you will find the cause of the problem, think of a solution, and work with our developers to implement it.

Everybody has an opinion about design, but are you able to validate it with data and make decisions with a clear reason behind them? We are certain that even the best ideas need to be rooted in reality in order to be implemented.

This role is part of the Customer Experience & Digital (CXD) team – a diverse, multicultural, and young team that in a short period of time has managed to create a feeling of belonging and enthusiasm in its members. Even though we work hard and play hard, we also enjoy every single day at work.
