  • A bachelor's degree in Digital Design (with a focus on communication platforms), Interaction Design, or a related field.
  • A stunning portfolio showcasing a broad variety of communication websites that illustrates your technical skillset, sense of aesthetics and front-end development experience. Please attach either your portfolio or a link redirecting to your portfolio with your application.
  • An excellent understanding of responsive web design.
  • A good working knowledge of design tools such as Sketch, Illustrator and Photoshop.
  • A thorough knowledge of topics such as communication funnel, user flows, content structure and hierarchy and the correlation between design and verbal communication.

  • A master’s degree or Diplom in Digital Design (with a focus on communication platforms), Interaction Design, or a related field.

Life at trivago is...

  • The ability to push your ideas through to execution without being held back by bureaucracy.
  • The freedom to embrace small-scale failures as a path to large-scale success.
  • The belief that factual proof, not seniority, determines which path to take.
  • Self-determined working hours based on measuring productivity through goals rather than number of hours spent in the office.
  • Being supported in all your needs, including relocation assistance and language classes for international arrivals.
  • The opportunity to develop personally and professionally with regular free workshops, seminars, sports and activities.
  • Working at our head office in Düsseldorf, a city boasting the 6th highest quality of life in the world for expats.
