Are you up for a design challenge?

We’re looking for a UX Design Intern to challenge us and themselves. Is that you?

Who we are

Human is an award winning user experience design consultancy with a keen focus on detail and craftsmanship. Our focus is on telling a digital story that puts humans at the core of that journey, translating our customers needs into powerful user experiences. We’ve worked with companies such as Newstalk, Morgan McKinley, XSellco, Ding, Spin1038, Chupi and government agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency to deliver user centric designs for apps, websites and mobile services. Everything we build is designed and coded in our studio in Dublin 6, Ireland.

Who you are

You are a talented UX designer who wants to work in a bustling studio (we share the space with another creative company). You will work on a number of ongoing projects delivering artefacts ranging from user journeys to wireframes and prototypes. Proven skills have as much value as qualifications and in this role communication is a key skill. We want a designer with drive, enthusiasm, a willingness to learn and above all else the ability to communicate their design ideas both internally and externally. We’re looking for a designer first and foremost but an ability to code or at least understanding coding principles would be a plus. This role is integral to our business and the successful candidate will need to represent the business at all times.

What you'll do

We’re keen to grow our team and we’re opening up a 3 month internship programme for a UX design intern. Your role will involve working directly with our senior UX designer to design and develop user centric solutions to a number of ongoing projects. You will have the experience and ambition to develop and achieve within a busy studio environment. We are a small team so the ability to get involved in any aspect of the company if you are needed is essential. The role is base in our Dublin 6 offices.

Skills

  • Ability to work collaboratively in a cross functional team setting as well as independently
  • Strong communication skills

  • Ability to rapidly sketch ideas in various media - words, graphics, whiteboards, prototypes, user flows
  • Ability to plan, facilitate, moderate and analyse results from user research, focus groups, usability testing and competitor market research
  • Ability to take a design from wireframe to prototype to high fidelity concept
  • Ability to map out interactions and user journeys through systems
  • Strong understanding of information architecture
  • Strong visual design skills adaptable to the platform for which you are designing

Bonus Skills

  • Knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite
  • Working knowledge of HTML and CSS
  • Working knowledge of jQuery or javascript
  • Knowledge of wireframing applications like Balsamic
  • Knowledge of prototyping tools like Marvel App or Invision

How to apply

We’re looking for someone who’s looking for a great design challenge, hard working and looking to build a role for themselves in a successful UX consultancy. The role will be 9:30am to 5pm four days a week. Expenses will be covered.
