Small team, big ambitions

Challenge: to come up with the best designs
With us you get started with the product Plek. You have three main tasks: optimize, innovate and respond to new business. With your Plek magic you optimize the current design and you constantly (proactively) renew the product.
With a little hocus pocus you will get to know our customers very well in the foreseeable future. You regularly research the wishes and problems of users and apply this to improvements and new modules. You also take part in strategic thinking and provide a suitable solution for every new customer.
In addition, you use your glass bulb to further develop the product vision of Plek. You are also responsible for the further development of our design system. You work closely with Development, Sales and with our Product Owner Marit.
