Working at Ask Phill

Our mission is to set the industry standard for designing, developing and growing D2C ecommerce experiences on Shopify.

The industry is still young and growing, giving us the opportunity to take centre stage and set the standard for building successful stores. We're committed to experimentation, always looking for new ideas and techniques to develop high quality ecommerce experiences.

We aim to drive ourselves and the industry forward every single day. We innovate for our clients to make them stand out among their competition. We celebrate diversity by sharing our experiences and learning from each other. If this sounds good to you, and you have the skills, the energy and the ambition, we'd love you to join our ranks!

The team 

You’ll join a young, diverse, vibrant and energetic team of professionals who are passionate about what they do and eager to learn more. We have a centrally located office in Amsterdam that’s always packed with friendly faces, warm food and cold beer.

We encourage everyone in the team to frequently get together for innovation sessions, dinners, drinks and parties because we believe fostering a strong team spirit amongst all colleagues leads to a better standard of work.

We’re big on collaboration and always encourage our separate teams to work together on projects. You’ll work closely with the sales team and designers, learning from them along the way whilst they also learn from you, as we all pitch in to help our clients grow their businesses.

Job description

You'll lead and shape the visual identity (our Phill-osophy) for our clients’ brand identities and their ecommerce platforms, ensuring that we set the industry standard.

You’ll guide and inspire a team of talented designers, steering our design team's growth in the right direction. You're tasked with crafting a forward-looking, long-term vision, not just for the design team's projects, but for their internal growth as well, positioning Ask Phill as a frontrunner in the web design industry.

We're a mobile-first e-commerce agency, placing a premium on strong brand aesthetics and engaging mobile user experiences.

You’ll liaise closely with our development team on various projects. Your work will range from redesigning entire stores to crafting individual features, always maintaining a consistent brand aesthetic.

The ideal candidate not only has experience in leading and shaping a design team, but can also guide and mentor others in their creative journeys. If you're passionate about design, technology, and driving creative innovation, we invite you to embark on this transformative journey with Ask Phill.
