User Experience Strategist Intern

We are no longer accepting applications to this position.

Software shouldn't make you mad. Learn how we make digital products a delight to use.

To put it simply, UX covers all aspects of how a user interacts with digital products, services, and content. It's a highly multidisciplinary field. You might be good at it if, besides being passionate about technology, you're fascinated by psychology, anthropology, sociology, architecture, or cognitive science. You might be good at it if you have recurring nightmares about using your school’s course registration platform, and even better if you find yourself brainstorming ways to make it more usable.

As a Viget User Experience Strategist Intern, you'll participate in all aspects of the UX process, including discovery, user research, content strategy, information architecture, and interaction design. You'll experience the entire process of a digital project, including design and development, by working with and shadowing members of other teams. You'll join client meetings to experience presentations and consultations firsthand. You’ll have the opportunity to contribute to client work and internal Viget initiatives, and you'll meet regularly with your Advisor to discuss your progress on personalized learning goals.

What We Look For (You may not have all of these, and that's okay!)

  • You have an innate sense for—and strong opinions about—what a good experience using a website should be about. You keep a mental list of sites you love and sites you hate.

  • You're passionate about technology. You're the first among your friends to know about the latest trends, methods, and tools in the web and tech industries.

  • You get things done. No matter what you're doing, you take pride in your work. You enjoy responsibility and you know that real effort pays off daily.

  • You take pride in listening, communicating, and collaborating exceptionally well.

  • You are currently enrolled in college, preferably as a junior or senior. We also consider graduate students and recent grads in some cases.

  • You have top grades or a track record of success.

  • You have the permanent, legal right to work in the US. We are unable to sponsor visas at this time.

  • We provide free lunch once a week to all staff (including interns).

  • We offer several opportunities to connect with coworkers each week, both in-person and virtually, including our weekly all-hands meeting.

  • You’ll experience Viget at its most vigorous. Whether you’re remote or in an office, you’ll participate in summer activities, challenges, hang-outs, etc.
