  • Communicate and deliver meaningful research insights in effective, innovative, and impactful ways to a variety of audiences.
  • Work alongside other Data, Product, Marketing, and other teams to piece together insights across the customer journey.

Requirements

How to know if you are perfect for the job:

  • You have at least 3+ years of experience in a UX research related role, specifically in consumer-facing mobile and web applications
  • Ability to independently define key research questions, purpose the most adequate research method, take care of planning, execute, and synthesize data to generate actionable insights.
  • Ability to understand the strengths and shortcomings of different research methods, including when and how to apply them during the product development process.

  • You have a valid license and are able to drive our e-mopeds


Benefits for you:

You will work in a transparent, fast-growing and inspirational environment in which you are able to take the lead over your own career and will get challenged on a daily basis!

And next to that:

  • 29 paid days off on a full-time basis: 28 on the roll and a day off on your birthday! (Yay!)
  • You will get free felyx minutes, of course.
  • We want to invest in your future: a good pension plan is therefore in place (1/3 employee, 2/3 employer).
  • We offer 6 weeks of paternity leave with 100% salary for all (upcoming) dads. (And of course, maternity leave for upcoming mothers as well).
  • Great office with great food options (& obviously free coffee, duh!) just 10 minutes from Amstel Station.

One more thing: Don’t worry about buying a suit just yet, our interview process will be online or by phone, and the office dress code is: be comfortable and come as you are!


Okay, one last thing: In case you are doubting if you meet all the requirements, still apply! We love people and we don’t hire based only on words and cv documents.

And, if you might know someone who fits the requirements better, don’t be afraid to share it with them! We have a variety of openings, and you might both end up working at Felyx. If you are a smart person and are excited about the company, you will most likely find a place here.

At felyx we believe that the best workplace is one that represents the world we live in today. This means we believe that diversity in the broadest sense of the word connects us and drives us forward as a company.

We believe that diversity goes hand in hand with different perspectives. It is these different perspectives that can help us become better and more innovative in finding solutions for our customers.

And because we believe this can be achieved, we are looking for colleagues who are intrinsically motivated and bring the right experience. Gender, age, sexual orientation or origin will never be a factor and will never become one.
