Job description

Our employees talk trash all day, every day.

That’s why we love them!

Orbisk employees do talk trash a lot. To be more precise, they discuss reducing food waste in the hospitality industry. How does the Orbi work in practice? Waiters scan cleared plates at Orbisk hardware stations, and our algorithms throw themselves on the leftovers to determine when ingredients were thrown away and in what quantity. Food for (actionable) thought because if we – for example – discover that guests aren’t into tomatoes but devour every last spec of avocado, restaurateurs can source smarter, reducing food waste and costs. We’ve already helped eliminate a whopping 737.520 kg of food waste, and we’re just getting started!

As our UX/UI Designer, you’ll become our very first 'experience architect' - the nickname we made up for the designer that creates, refines, implements, and optimizes the user interfaces for our product. We expect you to freely share insights and experiences with the software team, for example by proposing innovative design solutions to issues, and by acting as their sounding board and challenger. They’ll do the same for you! Together with our software team, you dive headfirst into user research and design. Understanding user behaviors and preferences, so we can gain new insights into how to create intuitive and engaging interfaces that minimize food waste. Additionally, we invite you to use your expertise to improve our usability, reduce complexity and make the overall experience more intuitive. We want Orbisk to become a well-known name in the global hospitality business, and we believe you can help us achieve that goal.

Our Product: The Orbisk Dashboard

Our product is a data-rich dashboard that shows all the waste registered by one or multiple of our Orbi’s. We can slice and dice this data in many different ways. As you can imagine, one Orbi registering waste is quite straightforward, but as we grow we now face the challenge of customers with increasingly complex environments, like waste from more than 200 different Orbis in different locations, time-zones, currencies and other (cultural) differences. The main challenge is to make the dashboard so intuitive that our end-user, whether it’s a chef or somebody working at the HQ of a global hotel chain, can easily spot the main ways they can reduce their food waste. Do you feel like you are ready to bite down into this great international design challenge?

The role in 6 bullets

  • Collaborate with Robin (Product Manager) and developers to define and implement innovative solutions for the product direction, visuals, and experience.
  • Execute all visual design stages from concept to final hand-off to engineering.
  • Conduct user research, evaluate user feedback, and translate user needs into wireframes, mockups, and prototypes.
  • Create user flows, process flows, and maps to communicate interaction and design ideas.
  • Present and defend designs and key deliverables to peers and executive-level stakeholders.
  • Since you are our first designer, you can establish a design system, pick your own tools (e.g. Figma) and promote design guidelines, best practices, and standards.

Job requirements

Your track record mentions

  • Proven UX/UI design experience with a strong portfolio. 
  • You're a chef at converting complex data into user-friendly insights.
  • You bring ideas to life by creating wireframes, user flows, high fidelity prototypes and appealing designs.
  • Excellent visual design skills with a knack for user experience.
  • 5+ years of UX/UI experience.

Why join Orbisk?

For a whole menu of reasons. Some lofty (reducing food waste also reduces our collective CO2 and H2O footprints), others more down-to-earth. After all, joining a scale-up that disrupts an entire industry is also just plain fun. And a great conversation starter. Especially if that team is as driven and adventurous as ours. We also offer you:

  • €4.000 - €5.000 gross p/m (depending on knowledge and experience)

  • Pension scheme and 30 paid vacation days (based on 40 hours per week)

  • Company laptop and €250 netto home office budget per year

  • Education & Alleo budget, and a travel allowance

  • Free office lunch and an office dog to keep you company

  • An office based in Utrecht and option to work partly remote

  • A young and creative startup work environment that invests in your development

  • A close-knit team with smart, enthusiastic colleagues who are happy to share their expertise with you. And on Fridays, a (non-alcoholic?) beer or two.
