Are you a creative mastermind with a passion for designing intuitive and engaging digital experiences? Do you have an eye for detail and the ability to transform digital strategies into practical designs that resonate with visitors and users? If so, we want you!

What are you going to do?

As a designer for KLM, you'll be at the forefront of creating cutting-edge digital designs that facilitate conversations with our visitors and users. Working closely with the product teams, you'll identify and solve problems, create new functionalities, and improve current interactions to ensure a consistent user experience. You'll have the opportunity to design for the KLM and Air France brands and explore a range of design forms, including Interaction, Information Architecture, Visual, and Service Design.

This is not a boring desk job. You'll be constantly challenged to think outside the box and come up with innovative design solutions that stand out from the crowd. You'll have the chance to prototype, concept, art direct, and illustrate, all while conducting quantitative and qualitative user research to validate your designs.


Where do you land?

You land in a new department, the Safety, Security & Crisis Management business platform, and you report to the Director of Product. A safe flight operation is essential for KLM. Within this new platform, we create innovative IT solutions in the field of Safety and Security with various product teams. Whether it concerns conflict zones or supporting crisis management in emergencies; IT has become an integral part of our daily operations.

Your profile

You have a demonstrated passion for design, user research and innovation. You have a good understanding of digital ecosystems and know your way around agile. Therefore, you’re confident in working with agile teams that are running at full speed. As a self-starter, you pro-actively reach out to product teams, stakeholders, or other designers for input and alignment. You are exceptionally skilled with stakeholder management. People skills are an important asset in this role. You know how to get people on board, even when they’re hard to convince. You’re prepared with a rationale or a prototype and can bring user insights, facts & figures to the table.


We offer

  • A challenging role at an unique employer in the Netherlands;
  • A gross salary between €3.800,69 and €5.429,56 per month;
  • Plenty of room for personal development and wonderful career opportunities;

Kom werken bij KLM

Denk je aan Schiphol, dan denk je waarschijnlijk ook aan KLM. Niet gek, want Schiphol is de ‘thuishaven’ van KLM. En daarom zie je een hoop blauw op en rond de luchthaven. Niet alleen van de vliegtuigen en uniformen, maar ook van de minder zichtbare KLM’ers: in de hangars, kantoren, maar ook op het platform, in de bagagehallen en de vrachtloods. Al die verschillende professionals houden KLM ‘in de lucht’. Bij de complexe operatie van zo’n grote luchtvaartmaatschappij komt enorm veel kijken: van planning en crew training tot onderhoud en prachtige Tech & Data oplossingen. Dit maakt dat je binnen KLM alle kanten op kunt.

Hoe werkt het solliciteren op deze vacature?

Je solliciteert altijd direct bij het bedrijf waar jouw interesse ligt, zonder tussenkomst van een intermediair. Lekker gemakkelijk, direct en snel! Na je sollicitatie neemt het bedrijf contact met je op voor eventuele vervolgstappen.
