Above is now looking for talented industrial design interns to join us in both our Malmö and Stockholm studios starting in the fall of 2022.

This is a great opportunity for you to develop your skills and get to know more about agency life!
You will get the opportunity to work with multi-disciplinary project teams on a wide variety of design & innovation projects for some of the world's most exciting clients. We believe in creating a culture where you, as an individual, can take responsibility for your work - but we also take care of each other as we navigate ambiguity, tackle challenging problems, and grow as a team.
One of our core philosophies is that we believe in bringing design and technology together from the very beginning, breaking down boundaries between the physical and the digital, while fusing hardware and software into meaningful products & services.

What we are looking for:
An inspiring design portfolio; good ideas, ample creativity, solid conceptual thinking

Curiosity for sustainability, material innovation & manufacturing processes
A humble, self-driven and positive attitude; willingness and desire to learn
Team player, with good verbal & visual communication skills (you have an excellent command of the English language)

We also have a passion for creating our own products and have a good track record of successful start-up ventures. We’re a team of warm, welcoming, dedicated professionals that love to build cool stuff. In everything we do, we strive for a world-class result and we believe you share that mindset
