(Senior) Designer - User Research, User Experience, User Interface (w/d/m)
At AVO Mobility we are changing the way we live in cities. With our cargobike sharing service Avocargo, we’re making electric cargobikes available to everyone - people and businesses. Our sharing offer allows families as well as other private user groups to bring anything and anyone along with them. Businesses, especially in the delivery sector, can transport large and heavy cargo without the need for their own static fleet.
We believe in the huge potential of cargobikes and are determined to overcome the barriers that prevent them from being a serious alternative to cars. Are you looking to be part of something big that not only helps solve people’s mobility problems, but does so in a sustainable, comfortable and exciting way? Then get in touch and help us make this world a little bit better!
We are looking for a (Senior) Designer - User Research, User Experience, User Interface (w/d/m) to support the team in Berlin or remotely.
Research shows that men apply to jobs when they meet an average of 60% of the criteria. Meanwhile, women and other members of marginalized groups often only apply if they check every box. So if you might have what it takes, but don't quite meet every single point on the job description, please get in touch either way. We'd love to have a chat and see if you could be a great fit.

What you can expect
When do you ever get the chance to really shape a company? You will be decisive in getting Avocargo on the road and hopefully, in a few years, you will look back at a time that was among the most exciting in your (professional) life.
