Join our team

Thank you for your interest in working with us! Applications for internships are always open, but we don’t have any full-time positions at the moment. If you still feel like we should get to know you, we’ll be happy to hear from you.


Interaction Design Internship

Full-time paid internship
We believe that brilliant solutions come from great engagement and working outside of your comfort zone. To help you do that, we will put the best tools in your hands to make sure you’ll enjoy work as much as play. You will join and represent us at conferences and workshops and write for our publications. We stay connected with progressively thinking designers, artists, technologists, and academics worldwide. You will learn from and work with the best professionals and have a jolly good time doing so.


The German word “Praktikum” says it best: an internship should be mainly about practicing your skills. At Interactive Things you will experience how to work in a cross-functional team of designers and developers to deliver digital products that solve our clients’ toughest challenges.


We want you to become a better designer and developer. To guide you in your education, we have put together a practical and theoretical curriculum of design and data visualization methods. You’ll get the chance to apply and improve the skills you learned in school on real projects.


Our biggest expectation is that you bring an open mind and an interest to design for people. We try our best to provide a nourishing and collaborative environment that is pleasant to work in. Your individual skills and ideas will be a great source of inspiration for all of us – we’re looking forward to getting to know you.

How to apply

Open to candidates from all backgrounds

We run two 6-month internships per year: January–June and July–December. Applications are open until end of March and end of September, respectively. If you’re interested in learning about data visualization and interaction design for the web, this is for you: some of our former interns joined us as high school graduates, journalists, biologists, visual designers, software engineers, and apprentices. We’re looking forward to getting to know you!

Please note that due to Swiss regulations we can only accept applicants from Switzerland or EU/EFTA states. If you’re not from an accepted state we’re very sorry we’re not allowed to hire you.
