The Opportunity:

As a UX/UI Design Intern, and a member of the Interos Design team, you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in our collaborative design process and contribute to the conception, evolution and realization of Interos’ Supply Chain solutions.

For us, creative collaboration and functional agility are the keys to our success; for you, this is an invitation and an opportunity to push your creative, problem-solving and people skills further than ever.

You will work closely with product managers, development leads, data scientists, user researchers and fellow UX professionals to realize solutions that are not only useful and relevant, but also delightful, consistent and valuable to our customers.

Our design process is inherently cyclical and iterative – this means you, as a key member of the user experience team, you will need to continually learn, understand, ideate, create, and validate your solutions – constantly pushing the product towards greater excellence.
