We’re on a mission to improve European city life. We believe in a future where inner cities will be free of cars and pollution. And we believe we can make that happen by offering our dockless, shared electrical scooters and bikes as convenient alternatives for short-distance travel. Our mission is to beautifully design micro-mobility for safety, comfort and durability.

We are a newly founded European micro-mobility start-up. We recently raised an initial investment of €20 million, co-led by EQT Ventures and Naspers. Dott is headquartered in Amsterdam and is gathering the most experienced team in mobility and tech in Europe.

Our UI/UX Designer will apply their natural visual and design talent to solve complex interaction design challenges. This talented core team member will spend their days sketching, designing, prototyping and detailing glorious user experiences that surprise and delight our customers.

    • You understand coding and, while you may not code yourself, you know how to produce designs that can be built within frameworks, using patterns that focus energy on what matters and differentiates.
    • You embrace mobile first and then work on the designs for folks still using desktops to get work done.
