Full time

One delightful NN user experience across all touchpoints of the customer journeys: that’s your goal. Together with your colleagues, you develop a central design system which enables all UX designers and engineers to rapidly and easily realize high-quality (accessible) user experiences.

This job, where you’ll have a lot of room for your creativity and diversity, offers you a monthly salary with a maximum of € 5.095 gross based on a 36-hour work week.

Your impact as Engineer Design System at NN

We want a high degree of consistency across our products on all of our platforms. That way no less than 5 million customers will have the best possible user experience. You know all in-and-outs of our Design System and exactly what our engineers within NN need. You ensure we have right components, guidelines, documentation and processes in place for developing native apps as well as modern sites, portals and applications for the web. You enjoy helping your fellow (designers and) engineers and enable them to create coherent user experiences. With your devotion to quality you set the standard and inspire others to do the same.

Through your work, you bring NN’s engineering and technology practice to the next level. Of course you also keep track of all developments within your field. We give you the space to deepen your knowledge.

Your responsibilities

  • You develop, iterate and maintain unified component libraries and documentation for both (native) mobile apps as well as (responsive) web in which you incorporate standards w.r.t. accessibility and code quality
  • You pro-actively contribute to the strategic approach to the design system based on your expertise to ensure we are future-proof
  • You are an ambassador and guide towards the various teams for using (and contributing to) the design system

Your colleagues

TLDR: you’ll land in a challenging, dynamic environment with plenty of opportunity for career development. You’ll take place in the new Design System team which is fully focused on enabling designers and engineers w.r.t. creating coherent user experiences in line with our brand. This is a new team with a clear vision and aspirational roadmap. In this agile team, you’ll work closely together with the Product Owner, Scrum Master, Tech Lead and UX designers. Together, we create the single source of truth: our design system which addresses the current as well as evolving needs for both the mobile app and our websites, portals and applications on the web. Outside the team you step into the role of ambassador for the design system by maintaining relationships with your colleagues in engineering throughout the organisation.

Who you are

Your experience with building high quality software forms the basis for collaboration with UX designers and engineers. You speak the same language (apart from the actual Dutch or English language) when it comes to semver, git, pipelines, package management and unit- and integration testing. It goes without saying that:

  • You’ve got a relevant bachelor of master degree
  • You’ve got up to date knowledge of modern JavaScript/TypeScript Engineering on the front-end
  • You’ve got experience using React (Native) or Vue
  • You’ve got a minimum of 5 years of experience as software engineer
  • You’ve got experience with tools such as Figma, ZeroHeight and Storybook

Continue developing

It is important to us that you continue to develop yourself. We give you the space and the confidence to grow in your career as well as a person. We help you with:

  • Plenty of training and learning opportunities in our Learning & Development Centre
  • A large (international) network of colleagues who are keen to share their knowledge with you
  • The autonomy to set out your own development path

About NN

We help people care for what matters most to them. The world in which we live may change, but what really matters to people remains the same. Family, friends, love, health, home and of course work. You help to make our services more personal and relevant. As an organisation we can really make a difference with all our brands: Nationale-Nederlanden, NN Investment Partners, ABN AMRO Verzekeringen, Movir, AZL, BeFrank, Zicht and OHRA.

Employee benefits

You are more than a colleague and we understand that very well at NN. You have different roles in life and that involves choices. We give you the opportunity to select the employee benefits that are important to you and that match your personal situation. This includes buying additional leave and flexible working hours. Your holiday allowance and 13th month are paid with your salary monthly, so there is no need to wait.

Because of coronavirus, all NN colleagues are currently working from home fully digitally. It is currently not yet clear when we can return to the office. Normally, as an Engineer Design System, you are based in our fantastic office in The Hague.
