At Skillshare, we’re building a global community of curious, lifelong learners, and we’re excited to welcome a Product Design Intern to our team. We strive to provide every teacher and student with a frictionless and beautifully designed experience.

Role Overview: As a Product Design Intern, you’ll spend three glorious months working with a product design team that is thoughtful, honest, and kind. This is a great opportunity to develop your craft in a supportive environment of highly skilled designers. During your internship, you’ll get hands-on experience working with product, engineering, and cross-functional partners to support the design and development of our product. In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to get resume and portfolio feedback during your time with us.

Please note: This is a 3 month internship, 20 hrs per week, $28 per hr. We can work with your schedule, but the bulk of your working hours should be during company working hours so you get the most out of your internship experience.

What you'll do:

  • Support the product design team in creating user-centered design solutions.
  • Produce design concepts and prototypes, balancing the need for high and low fidelity designs.
  • Present design work to team members and stakeholders, gathering feedback and iterating on solutions.
  • Help maintain consistent visual design patterns across all Skillshare platforms (web, mobile web, iOS, and Android).

Here is a list of possible projects and experiences you could have during your internship. The specific project(s) will be planned in collaboration with you.

  • Growth experiments
  • Contributing to our design system
  • Engineering hand off and supporting a project through development
  • Product Feature work

We also want to hear from you! What do you want to learn or experience? What experience gaps on your resume do you need to fill? Let’s make a plan together

Why we're excited about you:

  • Passionate about user-driven design and eager to build a strong portfolio.
  • Ask questions when you need help and push for clarity.
  • Share work regularly and seek out feedback to iterate.
  • Responsive and proactive in your communications.
  • A critical thinker with a user-focused approach to design.
  • Ability to collaborate effectively with cross-functional teams.
  • Experience designing in Figma.
  • Excited to work with and learn from an awesome team of super cool people!

Why you're excited about us:

  • Our team: We have a passionate, creative, and innovative team that is a lot of fun to work with.
  • Our mission: We’re doing work that matters – connecting lifelong learners around the world and empowering them to pursue their creativity.
  • Remote culture: A healthy, productive working environment means different things for different people. We optimize for trust and invest in supporting remote teams and focus on transparent communication to ensure an inclusive, equitable work environment for everyone.
  • Flexibility: We believe that doing your best work means living a full life. That means different things for everyone, so we optimize for trust, invest to support remote teams and encourage work-life balance.
  • Impact: You’ll be in a highly visible role responsible for business-critical initiatives while helping us improve the core experience for our students and teachers.
  • Your growth: You’ll have the opportunity to wear a lot of hats and collaborate with others.
