UI Design Intern

Boost Labs is on the lookout for a Design Intern to join our growing team. We are data analysts, innovative coders, and clever designers: we love creating ways to view data and building beautiful visual and technical solutions. The ideal candidate would be a recent graduate looking to gain quality experience within the design industry. We are looking for someone who is self-motivated, eager to learn, ready to collaborate, open to feedback, and wants to build cool stuff.

This internship is paid and requires full-time availability Monday through Friday in our Gaithersburg office for a term of 3-6 months with the opportunity to turn into a full-time hire. Local candidates only as this is not a summer internship.

What you will do:

As part of the Creative team, you will collaborate with project managers, data scientists, developers, and other designers on projects varying from informational graphics and data visualizations to interactive dashboards and large scale applications.

Follow direction from Senior Designers to assist on concept development to final product presentation by implementing various design process steps: defining a problem, conducting research, gathering requirements, brainstorming and ideating, iterating from low fidelity wireframes to high fidelity design prototypes.

What you will need:

  • Experience with Sketch, Axure, Adobe Creative Suite, and/or other wireframing tools
  • Understanding of design principles such as typography, color, and layout
  • Attention to detail
  • Passion to create smart, functional, and usable designs, not just something that looks good
  • Data visualization experience is a huge plus
  • Ability to take input, critique, and advice from clients and the team to move projects forward
  • Communication skills and team spirit
  • Portfolio with work samples

Why you should join us:

As an organization, we consider all-level collaboration a key aspect of our success. Our existence relies on effective communication and accountability, no matter the title. We work hard but we like to get loose with Bagel Fridays, ping pong battles, and taking a break for a happy hour with a stocked beverage fridge to keep you going. Want to call the next game?

Please include a link to your portfolio with your resume and/or application. Applications without a portfolio will not be considered for this position.
