Do you envision better futures and use prototyping to experience and test them? Are you an interaction designer who codes – a UX engineer who thrives in early concept explorations?
We are looking for a Design Technology intern to join us for 6 months (or more) at our Above Studio in Malmö or Stockholm – starting in the beginning of 2024. This is a paid internship.
What we offer
As a Design Technologist intern, you will be a member of our interdisciplinary teams that create innovative solutions and great user experiences across digital & physical. We work with some of the world's most exciting clients on emerging technologies and new experiences. Our work ranges widely from smart home experiences to healthcare devices, to automotive spaces.
We believe in creating a culture where you can take responsibility for your work - but we also take care of each other as we navigate ambiguity, solve exciting 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 to create meaningful products & services.
What you will do
Here is a list of what you might be doing in a project:
Explore new product experiences across digital and physical in multidisciplinary teams
Bring ideas and concepts to life through prototypes
Prepare and support user testing sessions for new products
Build tools that enable teams to experiment with new experiences
Inspire us with your insights and fresh takes
We mostly work with consumer products - so you should be interested in the world of user experience design. A lot of our work is prototyping experiences that live across digital and physical – so you should have some experience with coding and perhaps one or two prototyping tools (ProtoPie, Unity, TouchDesigner, React, Arduino, etc). Some experience with AI tools is a bonus. Beyond that, this role will be shaped by you and us together. We are super curious to see what new facets you could add to our work.
Too vague? Here are some general qualities that we'll be looking for:
Good communication skills in spoken and documentation form
An inspiring portfolio with solid conceptual thinking and applied technology that demonstrates your skills in (for example): coding, game engines, electronics and/or machine learning.
Curiosity in working with us at the intersection of design x tech
If you are still not sure whether this role is for you, just reach out to us. The fact you read this far probably means we should at least talk :)
