Design Development Program Intern - Summer 2021
Do you want to change the way the world interacts with its money? Do you have a passion to work and learn alongside some of the best designers in the industry?
Then we want you!
As an Intern Designer on the Experience Design team, you'll work closely with other designers, strategists, developers, product managers and business analysts to further our understanding of how people interact with their money. You'll find opportunities for change, advocate for the needs of our customers and lead design from empathy to iteration, delivering human-centered solutions to over 65-million customers.
You're a great fit for this role if you are:
A skilled worker. You obsess over things like taps, content, and form fields to create experiences, services, and products that are deeply satisfying. You understand that in a landscape where behavior and expectations are rapidly evolving you always need to be asking why.
Human centered. You have empathy for those you're designing for, and have demonstrable experience identifying, articulating, and incorporating user needs into your design decisions.
A simplifier. You take the complex and communicate it - both visually and in presentations - as simply and clearly as possible. You're able to cut through the noise to understand what's important and inspire that clarity in others.
A systems thinker. As you translate user needs and requirements into elegant solutions for complex problems, you're not just thinking about the task at hand but also about how your design choices scale and fit within larger established systems and patterns.
Collaborative. You enjoy working on agile teams with other designers, marketers, product managers, and engineers to collectively define the best solutions. You understand that it's more important to get there together than to shine.
Passionate. You are driven to design beautiful experiences that impact people's lives. You make it your business to know as much as you can about the people you are designing for and stay up-to-date on the latest design trends and techniques.
Have a can-do attitude. You're proactive and excited to produce awesome work. No task is too small or large for you. You are able to work alone or with partners to problem solve and develop clear action and execution plans for a task, keeping your manager informed of progress. You display a positive attitude and are excited to share your ideas with the team as well as listen to those of others.
A storyteller. You're able to develop clear and persuasive stories about your work that you share with a wide range of audiences, including business partners and stakeholders.
Detail oriented. You're proud that you've thought through every permutation of your designs, making the development process smooth sailing. Your production files are word and pixel perfect.
Flexible. You know that projects can adjust at the drop of a hat so you're adaptable and welcome change.
