What we mean by ‘Business Design’

Some say Business Designers are responsible for the business viability of the innovations that they devise together with their team. Yep, that’s also true at Jungle Minds, but not just that! The role of a Business Designer at Jungle Minds is pretty hybrid, at the intersection between strategy, business and creativity. They work as an integral part of a multidisciplinary team to create concepts, prototypes and products: putting them out there in the market and in the hands of users as fast as possible, test, learn and iterate. Business Designers are key in understanding the context and the business objectives of the customer and in translating it into the product. They turn data into insights, define and communicate strategies, discover and create business models. And – last but not least – they are also at the front line of our commercial efforts, working closely together with the client to continuously assess their needs and find opportunities for the next project we can embark on together.


What you will do as Senior Business Designer

  • You will analyse the business of our clients: the company, the market, the context and their customers. Understanding their strategic objectives and helping them to determine their short and long term objectives.
  • You will work together with visual, user experience designers and tech profiles to develop desirable, sustainable and feasible (digital) products.
  • With your project team, you will facilitate the process to arrive at innovations that are based on real insights on the needs of the business and the users.
  • You will work on the development of new ideas, concepts, solutions end-to-end together with your team: bringing in the strategic and business lens to the project team.
  • You will support the design of new, customer-focused business or revenue models that enable our customers to stand out from their competition.
  • You will lead client relationships and be at the forefront of finding opportunities for growing accounts.
  • You will coach juniors and medior members in the business design tribe.


Our ideal candidate

  • You speak and write Dutch fluently.
  • Great Business Designers can come from a variety of backgrounds: from a corporate or a startup, a business background or a design background. We will mainly look at your overall package of experiences and at what transferable skills you can bring to the table. As an indicative guideline, 6-8 years of experience in a role as Business Designer, Innovation Manager, Strategist, Product Manager, Product Owner or comparable roles, preferably within the digital domain. Agency experience is a plus but not a requirement.
  • You have hands-on experience in delivering end-to-end projects with a human-centered design approach. Experience in conducting qualitative and quantitative (user) research is a plus.
  • You have experience in leading workshops.
  • You are a fast thinker. You can quickly grasp the complexity of a business challenge, understand the key elements and the right questions to be investigated. You are a master in asking the right questions.
  • You are able to create and deliver effective and intellectually convincing presentations to clients
  • You are a modest, empathetic and energetic person.
  • You are able to work independently and to perfectly represent our agency with both new and existing clients.
  • Working in (small) teams is your natural environment and you are not afraid to take the lead and coach the team.
