EXPERIENCE DESIGNER - Category Experience Acceleration


We’re looking for a Experience Designer to join our Amsterdam-based Category Experience Acceleration team.  


We understand the different consumer needs applied to the context of categories and brand moments. Our aim is to deliver a seamless, premium experience across all digital touch points.  

With our focus on categories, we create a deep understanding of the consumer needs and uncover business opportunities through ongoing discovery and delivery work. We’re the category experts, working horizontally across the business and enabling premium experiences along the user journey. With the same dedication we are supporting the biggest brand moments, translating the brand ambition into experience directions that empowers brand messaging and commerce on our digital touch points. 


Key responsibilities:  

• Prioritise and deliver delightful design solutions in a fast-paced, agile environment, working closely with your Product Owner, Tech Partner and a diverse range of stakeholders  

• Own the design process and all the moving pieces within it: research, content, UX, and UI design, etc.  

• Able to confidently explain and discuss design decisions across all levels of stakeholders  

• Propose technically-feasible solutions supported by testing and analytics  

• Gain a deep understanding of our users; combine consumer data, industry trends, and consumer behaviours in context of your category and digital channels  

• Be a team player. Share knowledge and best practices with our design and product communities  

• Identify opportunities based on insights, feedback, and business goals  

• Guide the evolution of our design language 



Our designers are passionate, outspoken advocates for our users’ needs, who aren’t afraid to shake things up. We want innovators and experts who can help mature our practice and create delightful experiences that feel distinctly adidas.  


You’re a good fit for the role if: 

• You’ve got 3+ years’ experience designing for product teams  

• You’re an excellent communicator, comfortable presenting complex topics and decisions  

• You value collaboration and can bring cross-functional knowledge to the table  

• You’re a creator at heart. You’re deeply passionate about your craft and can balance consistency with creativity  

• You champion accessibility and inclusivity throughout the user journey  

• You’ve got experience validating design solutions using qualitative and quantitative methods  

• You can source, intepret, and implement feedback and insights into your design decisions  


Bonus points for:  

• Experience designing global products (international audiences, multiple languages, etc.)  

• Knowledge of or experience with front-end technologies


• Hands-on experience with data analysis  

• Experience in working with premium brands 

This role isn’t for you if: 
• You’re a lone ranger. We value autonomy but our designers work hand-in-hand with product owners, development, and other craft specialists 



At adidas we believe that through sport, we have the power to change lives.  


There’s plenty of change around right now as workouts move from the gym to the garage and we take a timeout from many of the activities we’re passionate about.  


Our ambition is to be the best sport brand in the world and with that comes plenty of challenges. We thrive on solving these with the imagination and experience of our incredible teammates.  


We’re all on the home team for now — we’d love for you to join ours.  



We get it, you want to know more than what we stock the fridges with. We asked our teammates for their favourite things about life at adidas, they said: the collaborative, supportive culture, the amazing team, and the sense of pride and purpose in their  

work. You’ll get all that, plus:  

• Generous employee discount on our brands

• Fitness activities  

• Opportunity to work for a truly global, multicultural team  

• Learning and development support  

• Discounted health insurance  



Please note: though our teammates hail from all corners of the world, our working language is English so this is a requirement for all roles.  


Hit ‘Apply’ and submit your CV along with a portfolio or samples of work that showcase your craft expertise. 


If you’re a good fit for the role we’ll reach out to chat.  

adidas celebrates diversity, supports inclusiveness and encourages individual expression in our workplace. We do not tolerate the harassment or discrimination toward any of our applicants or employees. We are an Equal Opportunity Employer.
