Building member experiences.


At strategic design agency Momkai we'd like to welcome a medior front-end developer to our international team.

With an eye for digital design and a drive to deliver  keen on getting even the smallest details in the UI right.

Recently, we've designed platforms and brands in Europe, the US and Japan.

About Momkai

Amsterdam

We believe that people don’t connect to merely facts; they connect to storytellers and their stories. Our philosophy is to cultivate calm, so that only the content can drive you to distraction. These principles underpin all the work that we design and develop. In 2016, we introduced this philosophy of calm at the Stedelijk Museum of modern art.

We create for mission-driven organisations such as the Imperial College London and New York University. The team united the 1.2M members that make up the Royal Dutch Football Association (KNVB); brought together the European community of researchers with the Embassy of Good Science; and designed initiatives from scratch, like Japanese journalism startup Renews or cancer research initiative Oncode Institute.

We work for start-ups and scale-ups that make an impact — from Adyen to VanMoof and Swapfiets. We are co-founders of De Correspondent. This is an ad-free, member-funded journalism platform for unbreaking news. We've helped to launch this Dutch journalism platform with a crowdfunding world-record. It's an example of how we like to create brands and platforms from the ground up. Holistically, from a timeless logo to a new audio app.
