Experience Design Intern 2021 – Slalom Build
Who You’ll Work With
At Slalom Build we co-create modern technology and software products with clients who are ready to accelerate their digital transformation. We choose to imagine things made better, and then set out on a journey to realize what’s possible. By blending design, product engineering, analytics, and automation, we build the custom-built software and data products of tomorrow.
Slalom’s 2021 Internship program is a 10-week paid program focused on student interns learning and practicing Slalom’s experience design capability model under the direction of our designers and design leaders. Slalom will select an internal project designed to provide lift across the organization and leverage modern technologies to realize that vision. Selected interns will utilize bleeding edge engineering practices and leverage new technologies in an agile delivery model mirrored from Slalom’s full-time consultants. Interns will also be leveraging experience design software like Sketch, InVision, and Zeplin to support our product teams and their understanding of the optimal interactions and experiences. This structure creates not only a valuable real-world experience for students to up their expertise and capability, but also mutually benefits Slalom as an organization.
Slalom is regularly recognized as a best place to work by employees and our Slalom Build Internship has been ranked a Top 100 Internship Program by both Vault.com and Wayup.com.
