Product Designer - Internship/Co-op (Summer 2017)

Uber Overview

We’re seeking talented and thoughtful design interns to help define and execute against a giant vision that builds upon what Uber has brought to the world so far. If you have the right stuff to join the Uber Design team as an intern, you’ll work among best-in-class designers, product managers and design-oriented engineers in a fast-paced, rapidly growing, hybrid (technology/operations) environment.

We are highly user-centric and we deeply believe we can innovate our way out of any box. The role demands great execution, bold innovation, obsession with quality, fearlessness and optimism to be inspired by the unknown and never settle, solving problems with creativity while keeping the user in mind and ambition to take projects to the finish line.

We might be a good match if…

You have a passion for great user experiences, and some work to prove it.

Whether UI, UX, or both, we’re interested in passionate designers that believe in hard work and great experiences. You have at least one project that demonstrates this ability and the desire to create many more.

You believe in craftsmanship and creating elegant, compelling designs.

Your growing portfolio has some stand-out work. You’re a walking encyclopedia of the latest apps and design trends (on mobile, web, desktop, etc), and have ideas and opinions on how to make many of them even better.

During your summer internship, you’ll get a chance to…

Work side-by-side with talented, thoughtful product designers.

You’ll be embedded directly in one of Uber’s product teams, working on a project in close collaboration with other designers. You’ll learn what it takes to design for millions of users – and hopefully teach us something too.

Prototype your ideas with the latest design tools.

Designers at Uber live and breathe prototypes – and are always up-to-date on the latest and greatest prototyping tools. During your internship at Uber, you’ll test out your design ideas with all kinds of high-and-low fidelity prototypes. By the end of your internship, you’ll be a walking encyclopedia of the latest and greatest new tools and trends.

Ship product alongside product managers, engineers, and other designers.

Great product design lives outside of just Photoshop or Sketch. You’ll work alongside other members of a product team to get the fit and finish right. You’ll experience release cycles and learn what details matter at each stage of the product development process.

All submissions will be reviewed and qualified candidates contacted in January 2017 for next steps.

  • Must submit portfolio along with resume for consideration. Must be actively enrolled in a Design degree program.*

Job Description

PERKS/BENEFITS:

  • Competitive hourly pay.
  • Catered meals and unlimited snacks.
  • Monthly housing stipend, reimbursement for cell phone bill and credits for Uber rides.
  • The rare opportunity to change the world such that everyone around you is using the product you built. We’re not just another social web app, we’re moving real people and assets and reinventing transportation and logistics globally.
  • Sharp, motivated co-workers in a fun office environment.
