UI/UX internship

Job description

This internship is only available for students who live in the Netherlands.

This is an exciting opportunity for an user experience and/or interaction designer with strong interface design skills. We are seeking creative and passionate interns looking for an environment with a core set of values anchored in trust, autonomy and a relentless focus on user experience. Being part of our design team is a unique challenge because Fonto is defining the ultimate user experience of a structured content editing, and not following others. Unlike website design, there is no comparable product. So every design is an entirely new challenge!

About Fonto

We are a 100% tech/product company based in Rijswijk and near to the Haagse Hogeschool. Our flagship is an online text-editor like Google Docs but then for a wide variety of diverse XML-schemes and their specific way of implementations. All sorts of companies like Toyota, BBC, Pearson, VMware, and various governments utilize our product.

Fonto is part of the well-known internet agency Liones, and we are sincerely proud of the fact that we have already guided over 40 students in the last 5 years. People are a family for each other: people take care of each other, and the same goes for the company. Within the company, there is no hierarchy nor a one-man show.

You will work closely with 2 designers, 15 developers, a couple project managers and, every now and then, with Martin – our Chief Merchandise Officer ;)
