Long story short

I’m a 21 year old Product Designer looking for a paid design internship in the US, perhaps Europe for 4 months.

Digital Product Design is what I’m focused on. It means that I can help you with your product (web app and/or mobile app) with my skills from UX/UI Design, User Research and Testing. I can create interactive prototypes coded in HTML, CSS & JavaScript and help you to do data-driven decisions.

One of the most engaging experience of my life was working in a team of the founder of CreativeMarket in Hawaii on his new startup and being a design intern at Shopify. I have also had the opportunity to work as a part-timer for IceWarp (50M+ end users), organize 2 Dribbble Meetups with over 300 attendees altogether, be #1 on Y Combinator Hacker News twice and travel 22 countries.

What I’m looking for

My goal is to develop myself, gain new skills and experience and help the team I will be part of. Based on my knowledge and previous experience, this summer I am looking for a specific internship.

I would like to find a 4 months long paid internship (June — October) in a mid-size company with more multidisciplinary product teams and mature design team. Ideally it should be a US (NYC or California) or Europe based company with exciting and challenging product.

How you can benefit from my internship

Primarily, I am focused on User Experience. I can help you with prototyping and quick testing new ideas, designing a new user interface, and sketching wireframes for your new project.

In addition, my skillset includes creating a trendy visual language for your product, bringing the products to mobile or implementing prepared design with HTML, CSS and JavaScript. The tools I use and have a high level of competence with are Sketch App, Adobe Suite, InVision, Keynote, Balsamiq Mockups, and Github, among others.

I will work on new ideas and concepts you have never had time to realize as well as bring new ideas and see the things from a different perspective. All that can result in radically improving the design of your product just in 4 months. On top of that, if both sides see that the cooperation is mutually beneficial, I can join your team as a full-time next year!
