Building member experiences.
Join us to help mission-driven organizations across Europe, US, and Japan. We've helped to launch global platforms, break crowdfunding world records, and build impactful brands. We create meaningful experiences for members online and in the real world through memberful design.
Global clients past and present include Adyen, Red Bull, Nike, the Royal Dutch Football Association (KNVB), Imperial College London, and New York University (NYU). The team worked closely with the founders of VanMoof, Bugaboo, Oncode Institute and Renews Japan. Momkai helped to co-found, design, and build De Correspondent, now the third largest membership journalism platform in the world (and a client for over 9 years).
The brands and platforms that we create are guided by our design philosophy of calm. It allows us to be kind, constructive, and creative. This philosophy stems from a drive for quality. We are focused on creating online spaces of calm — so that only the content can drive members to distraction.
Thanks to our four-year collaboration with NYU, we learned that a memberful approach provides a better and healthier route to sustainability. That’s how we became the home of memberful design.
With memberful design, we connect individuals’ passions to a shared larger purpose. We believe these meaningful member experiences create durable initiatives, as we experienced with De Correspondent. You can read more on its member-supported growth in Press Gazette.
About your role
Your work matters.
We are looking for talented developers with a drive to create outstanding work — guided by a strong moral compass. With a focus on creating clarity and beauty. Together we create member experiences: platforms, brands and apps for teams that make a positive impact in the world.
By writing clean code, you enable others to build upon your work. By presenting your ideas clearly you inspire others. And by learning new technologies with the team and our development partners, we stay at the frontier of our craft. At Momkai, you will be part of an independent studio — and you'll be welcomed by a close-knit team, who will do anything in their power to make you feel at home.
We strive to modernize our technical stack whenever we have the chance, aiming for a future proof architecture and ideal technical fit for our client projects. We have a preferred technical stack that everyone within our development team is comfortable with. For back-end purposes we commonly use Craft as our preferred headless CMS, enriched with plugins or self-written modules. Through GraphQL queries we feed our front-end using Next.js and React components. This way, we are able to create responsive interfaces with SCSS and animation libraries like GSAP.

Proven record — creating headless API driven web-applications
