Our design team is dedicated to one of our Big Bet’s called App Marketplace. We focus on Mailchimp’s two-sided marketplace: the user experience of discovering, connecting and using apps/templates to power their account as well as the developers who build the apps. Because we’re in the early phases of the Marketplace as well also developing a new app type called extensions, you’d have a big head in helping shaping the future of how users interact with apps at Mailchimp.

We're looking for an Intern for the Product Design team. Product Design sits at the intersection of design, product management, and engineering working closely with product owners, engineering team leads, research, data science, and marketing to arrive at elegant solutions for our users. You’ll get to work alongside an incredible mentor with a design team that has two prior Mailchimp interns to support your growth and development.

You’re highly collaborative and comfortable giving and receiving design critiques. You are passionate about web and mobile technology, explore the latest and greatest in prototyping tools, while keeping emerging design patterns and visual treatments on your radar. You're always looking for ways to create simplicity out of complex problems with an awareness of the market need, an obsession for detail, and an eye for sharp visual design. You’ve got a healthy curiosity for how things work, a dedication to bringing a shared vision to life, and you are ready to grow in your design career.

What you’ll do:

  • Develop design approaches that translate to elegant user experiences
  • Create interaction models, workflows, screen designs, and visual details that resonate with the Mailchimp user
  • Collaborate with design peers and cross functional teams to build concept consensus
  • Explore Mailchimp design systems and patterns
  • Support user research by reviewing or running studies

We’d love to hear from you if: or you have:

  • Passion for designing compelling user experiences
  • Solid intuition and demonstration of visual design principles and tools used in interaction design
  • Experience creating interface prototypes and portfolio of examples
  • Understanding and ability to prototype with tools like Figma, Invision or Principle, or even good old fashioned HTML/Javascript/CSS

They determine how we do our jobs and how we meet our goals, enabling us to bring out the best in each other and execute on our strategic plans to deliver for our customers.
