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!
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 ;)
We choose quality over quantity; we do product development, no projects.
An internship allowance of 450 euros.
A team of passionate people who genuinely care about what they do and the standard of work they produce.
Agile working; the best of kanban, scrum, common sense and healthy sense of reality based on decades of combined experience.
Opportunities to make a difference in a nimble, highly productive environment.
Tasty lunches with daily fresh bread and (almost) all the spreads that the AH delivers.
Fresh fruit, biscuits, chips and other snacks.
Weekly Friday afternoon drinks with music, beer / wine and frying for the enthusiast.
Free T-shirts and other merchandise.
Enjoy what you do everyday!
We’re looking for a UI/UX student on a roll who will be enrolled throughout the internship.
You’re passionate about devising excellent user experiences and eager to master the art of user research and interaction design.
Your great sense of empathy allows you to make user-centric decisions, based on the research and insights you help collect.
You can quickly visualize interface and interaction ideas in Sketch.
Your high level English allows you to understand and communicate complex problems and ingenious solutions.
If you have experience capturing and presenting your UX thinking and designs in presentations, that’s a big plus.
The best bribe you could give us would be hands-on experience with prototyping tools such as InVision, Marvel and Framer, though this isn’t a hard requirement.
The same goes for experience doing customer research interviews and analysis.
