The Opportunity

Are you an all-round industrial designer who has a talent in creating digital visualisations? Are you looking for a new challenge where you can learn from enthusiastic colleagues and work on innovative projects? 

We are hiring and look forward to meet you.

What to expect when you join our team:

npk design is a product design agency based in Leiden, The Netherlands.

We translate the ideas from our clients into innovative, sustainable designs with the right impact. Our project portfolio is very diverse and varies from professional and consumer products, smart packaging to products for public spaces. Our clients are clever start-ups, established national and international companies, municipalities and (local) government, as well as large multinationals.

We are a team of 25 enthusiastic colleagues, most of them very experienced and with a shared passion for product design and development. We have our own professional workshop just around the corner of our office, we use the latest prototyping techniques, and like to test our models ourselves. The atmosphere is informal, there is always good coffee, and we organise activities outside working hours on a regular basis.

What qualifications do we ask:

  • Product or Industrial design education (Masters degree).
  • 3+ years of relevant work experience (work experience in a design agency is an advantage).
  • All-round design skills: excellent in concept generation, (hand and digital) sketching and creating digital visualisations. You have a feeling for use of color and materials (CMF).
  • Expert knowledge of 3D CAD (SolidWorks) and especially Surface modeling to build and shape your ideas. You create great renderings in Keyshot, and preferably also have experience with Blender or the intention to learn this.
  • Good storytelling techniques and making/giving presentations (both internally and externally).
  • Knowledge of the latest developments in the field of design and more specific in the field of sustainability and circularity.
  • Fluent in Dutch, both in understanding and conversation

Who are you (Competences):

  • Communicative: you can communicate conceptual ideas effectively (both verbally and visually) to clients and within the team.
  • Stress resistant: you keep an overview, you monitor deadlines and you communicate with all parties involved in the various design projects you work on.
  • Result-oriented and motivated to come up with innovative solutions.

What do we offer:

  • A good salary based on the BNO guidelines
  • 25 holidays yearly when working full-time (40 hours)
  • Travel allowance and a pension scheme
  • Attractive challenges and opportunities for development and training

Are you the designer who contributes to the success of our agency? We would like to receive your motivation, CV and a concise portfolio with which you can fully convince us of your talents, experience and skills.
