Working at FROLIC studio

We’re a small multidisciplinary team of designers and engineers developing meaningful products and tackling big design challenges. We believe that with a great team everything is possible – teamwork is our strength, being small and nimble is our edge.

Our clients mean a whole lot to us, but we design for the people that use these products, whether physically or digitally. We work on a variety of products ranging from innovation/R&D projects all the way to manufacturing. Projects can span a wide range of fascinating industries and contexts, for instance: infrastructure, charitable and medical, consumer electronics, advertising, or audio (amongst many others). Between client projects and developing our own products, there’s really never a dull moment here!


Want to join our cosy little studio in the heart of Amsterdam?
You can apply by filling this form (also found under each job description). These are the main things you will need to have ready during your application:

  • Portfolio (for design-related applications) as a PDF under 10mb. If you need to compress, this works well.

  • CV, also as PDF under 10MB.

  • Some short text (±300 words) giving us insight into your incentives to work with us at FROLIC studio (think of it as a motivation letter).
