You recognize yourself in the following

  • You have a background in CMD / Interaction Design or similar
  • You have more than 3 years of work experience in all areas of UX Design, e.g. user research, interaction design, visual design, prototyping, usability
  • You have experience with Figma, Sketch, Maze or comparable tools
  • You’ve created some beautiful things and you can show them to us in your portfolio, which focuses on both visual design and the design process
  • With your clear view you can see how it should be done and what is possible
  • You have the ability to present design ideas in a tangible format with clarity and passion, and to receive feedback with open-mindedness.
  • You’re able to design for all kinds of devices and don’t care whether it’s a mobile phone, tablet, pc or even a 75 inch TV

This is what you’re looking for in a job

  • Money
  • 25 leave days. As long as you promise to come back
  • Travel allowance and a retirement plan
  • With over 30 training courses in our own Coolblue University, you can become a little better every day
  • A discount on all our products
  • An extraordinarily good work environment with colleagues from all over the world who make you happy, epic (digital) Coolblue parties, pubquizzing, and other activities
  • At this moment, we all work from home. Of course, we’ll help you create the best home-office possible. Including desk chair, laptop, and blue garlands.
  • A picture-perfect office at a great location. You could crawl to work from Rotterdam Central Station. Though we recommend just walking for 2 minutes
  • A job at one of the fastest-growing companies in the Benelux
  • Room for new initiatives and ideas. We’re always open to those, whether you’ve been with us for a week, month, or a year
  • A flexible workplace. Work in the Netherlands where you like and meet your team a few times a month in our office in Rotterdam (Depending on the Covid-guidelines)
  • Working together in an international environment with colleagues from the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Brazil, Mexico, Italy, and many more

  • How does Coolblue adhere to the 1.5-meter rule at work?

    We adhere to the recommendations and guidelines of RIVM and the government, of course. This means that all colleagues from the main office work from home as much as possible. The interviews for your application will also take place via video calls.

    We’d be happy to have you at the office on your first day. So we can drink a cup of coffee and get to know each other a little better. At an appropriate distance, of course.

  • Can I live outside the Netherlands and still work in the Tech department of Coolblue?

    No, it’s not possible to work from abroad as a Tech colleague. We like collaborating in a digital way, but over this last year we’ve seen that doing a retrospective, a pair-programming session, or grabbing a drink in real life is much more fun. That’s why we like everybody to be in the Rotterdam office at least 3-6 days a month on average. Together with your manager, you decide how often you and your team really meet in the office.

    Besides that it’s much more fun to see each other in real life, there are also some tax regulations that make it hard to work from abroad.

    For a lot of vacancies, we have the possibility to help you (and your family) to relocate to the Netherlands. Visit our relocation page for more information about moving to the Netherlands.

  • How often do I go to the office?

    Together with your manager, you decide how many days you and your team will be in the office. On average, this will be at least 3-6 times a month, but more often is possible.

  • Do you help new colleagues relocate?

    Yes, we do this for most vacancies. If the vacancy you’re interested in has a relocation sign on top, it means we’ll help you (and your direct family) to relocate. You can find more information on our relocation page.


    Do I need to start living in Rotterdam when I move to the Netherlands?

    No, that’s not necessary. The Netherlands is a small country, so if you want to live in Amsterdam, Utrecht, or Tilburg, that’s okay. As long as you are able to meet your team in the Rotterdam office around 3-6 times a month, you can live wherever you want.

  • Can I keep developing myself?

    Coolblue University: learning at Coolblue, in a different way.

    With over 30 training courses in our own Coolblue University, you can get a little bit better every day. At Coolblue, we go back to school sometimes. But not by sitting there quietly and just listening. The training courses aren't boring, but interactive. You have to do exercises and have discussions with others. At the Coolblue University, we choose what we want to learn, so we can continue to develop en become real experts. For example, a Delivery Driver needs different training courses than a Customer Service Employe and a starter needs different courses than a manager.
