We’re looking for a smart and talented intern to join our small product design team. Together with engineering, we invent and design everything across our mobile and web apps. We speak plainly to each other, listen carefully to the people we work with every day, and work until everything’s perfect. The Tumblr community is the most creative on the internet, and we owe them our best.
As a product design intern, you’ll:
Design real (mostly mobile) features from sketch to Sketch.
Gather research and ideas.
Assist in overseeing the development of your ideas.
File design bugs.
Take on smaller creative projects across the team, from icon design to production work.
Work with various departments and teams within Tumblr.
Have a fantastic summer in NYC.
What we’re looking for:
A self-starter. You don’t sit around waiting for opportunities to come to you.
An expert in Sketch and motion prototyping tools.
A strong sense for art direction, typography and general design principles.
A keen eye for detail and consistency.
Solid understanding of Apple’s Human Interface Guidelines and the Google Design Guidelines.
Strong writing and communication ability.
Humility and the ability to accept and manage feedback. This is important.
Humor, niceness, and an allergy to the platitudes and jargon of the tech industry.
Interests outside of computer stuff.
A Tumblr user with a deep understanding of the product and community.
We’ll need to see:
A portfolio with relevant work, especially mobile examples.
3-5 sentences about why you’d like to design for Tumblr.
Your Tumblr and other social URLs.
Our ideal candidate is in their senior year, and is interested in the prospect of future employment at Tumblr.
