Who we are

A piece of the moon, a complete dinosaur skeleton, the Pope's hat, the world's smallest book - at Catawiki, we come across extraordinary objects such as these every day.

As Europe’s fastest growing online auction platform, our mission is to make special objects available to everyone. In fact, 14 million users are buying and selling on Catawiki every month. This means we are continually growing and always on the lookout for new talent!

Born and raised in The Netherlands, we started in 2008 as a platform where collectors could manage their collections online. Yet, times change, ideas evolve, and in 2011 we hosted our first online auction and we haven’t looked back since! We’ve now grown to 600 Catawikians working across 7 international offices and are proud to have maintained our start-up mentality.  

What you will do

We are looking for a talented Graphic Designer, with strong visual skills to join our growing UX team. In this position, you will work closely with the Marketing team to create compelling designs for our buyers and sellers leading to increased engagement and conversion. You will be part of a multidisciplinary team working to: 

  • Create and govern design specifications, principles, toolkits and style guides that enable a coherent customer experience across our different user touch-points including landing pages, display banners, offline advertising collateral etc.
  • Create immaculate visual designs that are both easy to use and illuminate our brand; this includes screen layouts and compositions, colour palettes and textures, icons and typography, UI elements and photography.
  • You will work on creating design deliverable such as prototypes, visual designs and mock­ups.
  • You will work closely together with the development team to implement your ideas.
  • You will team up with the other UX designers to review designs, provide feedback and contribute to a consistent and coherent ecosystem.

Who you are
  • Qualified via bachelor’s degree in IxD, VisComm, Graphic Design, UX or similar relevant discipline with 4+ years relevant working experience in a fast moving eCommerce or Marketing focused environment.
  • Impressive Visual Design skills (brand identity, typography, visual hierarchy) and an affinity for beautiful interfaces with a portfolio to back this up.
  • You have experience in creating visual systems that can be applied to multiple different sites and apps.
  • You have excellent communications skills. You can verbalise and articulate your design decisions. You can convince others of your ideas, while also take direction & learn from others.
  • Knowledge about HTML / CSS is a pre-requisite.

Here’s what we can offer you:
  • A diverse and international team with over 40 different nationalities.
  • Trendy offices located in the heart of Amsterdam and Assen with an easy-going atmosphere.
  • Our entrepreneurial environment encourages everyone to take initiative and experiment with new ideas. You’ll actively contribute to the growth of the Catawiki platform.
  • An in-house ‘Learning & Development’ team which provides tailor-made training to facilitate your personal and professional growth.
  • The fun part! Our Activity Committee plan everything from ‘CataFooty’ to International Food Festivals, Friday Drinks, Board Game Nights, Pub Quizzes and Boot Camps!
  • And there’s more! Paid holidays, holiday allowance and a pension plan paid for by Catawiki.
