Standaard Stokke AS is hiring a Design Director in Amsterdam

Do you like the combination of a local heritage and a global presence? From humble beginnings in Ĺlesund in 1932, our iconic products are now sold worldwide. Since then, Stokke has combined our passion for Scandinavian design with the ability to challenge the ordinary and make beautiful products that nurture family bonding. With your help, we want to go even further; be recognized by even more families as a company that designs products in the best interest of the child.

As Design Director you’ll be in charge of our design strategy and philosophy, ensuring we stick to our DNA and human centric design principles. You will get to combine your excellent eye for good design with solid leadership skills and good business understanding.

The position will be based in Ĺlesund or Amsterdam and is part of the extended leadership team.

What you get

Perhaps the biggest benefit of working at Stokke is the opportunity to work with products that are recognized around the world and have a common purpose: to encourage child development and to nurture family bonding. You will also get to appreciate an international career and learning opportunities in a growing company that creates smart and sustainable premium products that stimulate children’s development.

Furthermore, you will work in a company whose values define who we are, what we believe and what we stand for. At Stokke, we are truly better together as ONEStokke and we take pride in our social happenings, celebrating our international and diverse atmosphere with events such as holiday or summer party.
