Internship

According to Spotify, they are looking for a Product Design Intern to Join The Band this Summer. You must be someone who is passionate about developing strategies based on insights of real people, is interested in mastering your craft to turn insights into appealingly designed products (both interactions and visuals), and seeks to encourage the organization by showing/prototyping what is possible before it is built. Above all, your work will impact the way the world experiences audio content.

What you’ll do:

  • Work on design projects across the entire product lifecycle. Let users lead the way. Our users inform where we are going. Our teams focus on listening to users and letting their needs guide us to the best solutions. It’s important for us to know we are solving for real people and not just the loudest voice in the room.
  • Work with small multi-disciplinary teams. You’ll partner closely with engineering, product, and business folks to find elegant but practical solutions to craft challenges. You’ll supply ideas to develop the right product strategy. Together, you’ll tackle problems and come up with solutions that delight our users.
  • Produce concepts and prototypes; knowing when to apply pixel-perfect attention to detail, and when to make low-fi sketches and prototypes.

Who you are?

  • You are pursuing a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree or a bootcamp certification in Graphic Design, Human Computer Interaction, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a related field of study.
  • You have a graduation date of 2024 or 2025.
  • You currently have valid work authorization to work in the country in which this role is based that will extend from June to September 2023.
  • A great communicator. You have the communication skills to help set up frameworks and brainstorm initial design concepts.
  • You are constantly looking to hone your design instinct through user feedback, whether through hands-on user research or by designing options for an A/B test.
  • You have an online portfolio or PDF that you can share with us and have some projects that you can tell us about.

Where you’ll be

  • We are a distributed workforce enabling our band members to find a work mode that is best for them!
  • Where in the world? For this role, it can be within the Americas region in which we have a work location.
