  • Stuart FrisbyStuart Frisby, over 9 years ago (edited over 9 years ago )

    I'm the principal designer at Booking.com - I am recruiting top-class design talent from all over the world to join us at our HQ in central Amsterdam to work on the worlds best travel product.


    • Strive to create great user experiences.
    • Create in the full sense - from conception to production. That means writing HTML/CSS that millions of people a day will see.


    • We're super cool, but in that under-stated European way you love.
    • We empower you to make the biggest possible impact to our platform
    • We'll relocate you & your family from anywhere in the world, and make it as painless as possible.

    You can contact me via stuart.frisby@booking.com for more info.

    • Competitive salary
    • Super flexible working style
    • Work on an exciting product that's at the epicentre of the UK tech scene

    This seems to be a pretty popular post, I think we should start running this monthly. Its good to help each other out, but at the same time I don't know how this would work with DN's own job wall. Thoughts?

      Yeah I think it should be monthly too — my thoughts were that not all companies can necessarily afford to post a paid-for job ad, but the ones that can will continue to do so (because ultimately they'll get greater exposure doing that).

      Also sometimes a company might be hiring but not have the spec fully fleshed out. This is an opportunity to create a more casual heads-up before posting to DN Jobs (or @dsgnjbs :)).

          Yeah, I love to see the community sharing job openings like this, but I feel this directly bypasses DN Jobs.

          Like what, Booking.com doesn't have the budget to post a paid job opening?

          1 point
          • Tom Cavill, over 9 years ago

            They do have the budget and they do pay to post. This is just another outlet — a place where all companies regardless of budget can post, and with a more casual/conversational approach.

            It's good to know the (user)names behind these companies, too.

            • Jonathan YapJonathan Yap, over 9 years ago

              Yeah, I think they have a war chest of a budge. I seen them everywhere! However it is nice to see a name or a person to those listings and people are more familiar here with each other like you said. You would never know all this through a job board because some usually go through to HR 1st.

              Perhaps there is an idea around DN job post <-> job wall? A sticky? A limited member's post? Just thinking out loud, some might go against the point of DN being open, but its food for thought. Will be good to get the LV guy's opinion on this.

                Yeah, it does makes sense to keep this going in a non-harsh manner, it's definitely positive for everyone.

                I'd love to see some official position from the DN guys too, just so we can know what's ok and what's not.

    Notion – San Francisco

    "We shape our tools, and thereafter our tools shape us"

    The goal is to democratize software. Quite a shame that 30 years into personal computing, an average person's interaction still caps at word-processing. We'd like to change that.

    A beautiful loft/artist office in the Mission. Best investors out there. Right now there are 5 of us.

    You will be part of the founding team. You need to be able to make things and think conceptually.

    I'm the art director at Trumaker, and am looking for a multidisciplinary designer to get his or her hands dirty with digital and print design. I'm in the process of redesigning almost every digital and print product we have, so there's a big opportunity here for someone who wants to work across media. Shoot me an email if you're interested.

    Oh, and we're based in San Francisco. Unfortunately, remote is not okay, because you need to be hands-on with our most important product: our shirts!
