UX/Research Paid Internship: Summer 2011

UX | Research Summer Intern

gotomedia (gotomedia.com) is a global leader in creating people-friendly, connected experiences. Our approach combines research, strategy and design into digital solutions. gotomedia is looking for an intern interested in multiple areas of UX design and research to work in our fast-paced, real-world environment. We currently have an open position for a paid internship at our office in San Francisco for a talented and motivated applicant.


Note: Though our ideal is a mixed-experience internship, we will consider applicants interested exclusively in UX design OR research.


You

- Are personable, proactive and self-running, with a desire to learn and a passion for user experience and research

- Are completing or have finished a bachelor’s or master’s degree in HCI, digital design or related fields

- Take a problem and figure it out yourself—in unique and creative ways

- Have a strong portfolio and can demonstrate your style of visual thinking

- Have excellent verbal and written skills—and can type really fast!

- May have experience in human factors, cognitive psychology, or other

- May have coding or other technical experience


Our working environment

gotomedia is located in San Francisco’s eclectic Mission District. Our loft space is casual, inviting collaboration and creativity. We revel in our flexible environment and ability to work in the manner and location that yields the best outcome. We welcome you to visit!


What you will be doing

The UX side of things demands attention to detail and a focus on real user experience strategies. You will learn task and behavior-oriented mapping and information architecture. Depending on your aptitude, you will participate in design reviews, working sessions and project meetings. Applicants who are more technically focused will have a chance to get deeper into the specifications and coding side of the solution. Design-focused applicants will participate in brand sessions, product and interaction deliverables, and more.

In the research portion of the internship, you will focus directly on projects ranging from usability to remote and in-person (contextual) studies. You will be asked to help with recruiting, testing, note taking, report writing and integration into results.
