Interaction Design Internship

Six months, full-time, paid internship position in Zürich.

Who we are

We are a Zürich-based design studio with a focus on data-driven digital products. We work with a broad range of clients in journalism, healthcare, academia, finance, and government. The visualizations and applications we design and build facilitate understanding of complex topics, make people better at what they do, and solve relevant problems.

People who work at Interactive Things are passionate for their craft but also for working on a team which brings together different backgrounds, personalities and skills. Continuous improvement is at our core; we foster an environment where people can learn from each other and contribute to every aspect of the company. Our team is open to share what we know with the wider community. Be it on our blog, at conferences or by offering internships, trial apprenticeships, or at the «Zukunftstag für Mädchen».

Who we’re looking for

We are open to candidates from all backgrounds. 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.

What we offer

  • Work

    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.
  • Learn

    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.
  • Inspire

    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

Diversity and inclusion are important to us. We welcome all candidates irrespective of age, ancestry, color, disability, race, sex, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religious creed, medical conditions or marital status. When in doubt, please apply! For any questions, Acil and Peter will be happy to help.
