Do (web)apps that are merely usable make you not want to use them? Do you also think it’s important that a product conveys the personality of its maker? And do you consider a button unfinished until it has a nice subtle animation? Then we’re looking for you!

Yoast is one of the biggest players in the world of SEO and WordPress thanks to our 7,5 million users worldwide. And we’re looking for reinforcements for our UX team, to take out product to the next level in terms of user experience.

  • Expertise in the field of interaction design
  • Experience with Photoshop, Sketch, or something similar
  • Experience with research, user testing, and/or prototyping
  • Technical knowledge and experience with WordPress is a plus

If any of this is new to you, that’s fine. We’re looking for fast learners who can pick up new technology quickly.
