Who are we looking for?

We are looking for a driven (game) designer with a passion for problem-solving and a creative flair for design, gamification and storytelling! With us, in the vibrant heart of Amsterdam and idyllic Curaçao, you get the opportunity to be part of a dynamic team.

Your mission? Designing a groundbreaking hybrid online/offline gaming experience for tourists. This challenge requires a combination of thoughtful design, technical finesse and a dose of creativity.

And here comes the interesting part: all this takes place on the enchanting island of Curaçao, steeped in historical and cultural treasures that serve as inspiration for your compelling story. An affinity with culture and history is a valuable advantage.

What will you experience?

You will take the lead in developing and validating an MVP for an app that introduces tourists to the local culture and history of the island. The assignment includes the following components:

    • Concept development and storytelling: Develop engaging concepts and storylines to acquaint tourists with the local culture and history. This involves immersing yourself in the culture and history of the island.
    • UX/UI Design: Collaborate with our creative team to translate your ideas into innovative design concepts and game elements that merge into a hybrid digital/real-life experience. All of this is presented through a user-friendly interface that not only facilitates navigation but also keeps users engaged. As a team, you will work with a white-label app and face the challenge of creatively dealing with its technical limitations, whether through technical solutions or clever design choices.
    • Validation: We let a test panel experience your product. You provide a user-friendly way for the panel to provide feedback on your product. The golden rule applies here: only smart questions provide useful answers.

What are you taking with you?

You are a third or final year student in a bachelor’s or master’s degree program in Communication and Multimedia Design (CMD) or in a related field, with a focus on UX/UI design and gamification. You love storytelling, traveling and games and you are interested in culture and history. Knowledge of design tools such as Sketch and/or Figma is an advantage.

What do we offer?

At Ngrane you don’t just join a company; you become part of a community that nurtures creativity and encourages professional growth. We work on projects that really make a difference for users and that you can be proud of. This also applies to this internship project. You are working on a startup project with a direct impact on the involvement of tourists with the local culture, history and population of Curaçao.

At Ngrane you work on personal growth and development within a dynamic team. You will be guided by dedicated mentors and gain access to leadership and professional growth programs. You will be part of a diverse, inclusive and enthusiastic team with a proactive work ethic, within a relaxed and informal office environment.

You are part of a community that is all about connection. The team meets every day to have lunch together. Sometimes we organize challenges and inspire each other in the field of food. A constant supply of coffee, tea and soft drinks is available throughout the day.

Our office is located on the Rokin, right in the bustling heart of Amsterdam with a tram stop and parking garage in front of the door. Our partners in Curaçao have an office on the beach ( Mambo Beach).
