We have a full-time paid internship starting next year in my group at PARC. We work on cutting edge technologies, often under the IoT umbrella and we pay competitive Silicon Valley intern salaries. Please feel free to pass on/post to your networks.
The intern will work closely with senior staff to produce interim and final deliverables for presentation. The range of activities will include: creating illustrations to explain complex ideas; producing consistent presentation documents; unifying the appearance of prototypes across a variety of media (Web, mobile, tablet, physical, etc.); conducting visual design and interaction design explorations and visual design research.
Recent BA/MA/MDes/MFA graduates or current MDes/MS/MFA students in Interaction Design, Digital Media, Product Design, or closely related fields are encouraged to apply. Exceptional senior year BA/BFA students will also be considered.
The ideal candidate should:
– have strong visual design, interaction design and prototyping
skills across a wide variety of media (print, digital, Web, mobile,
– be familiar with the practices and techniques of user-centered design
– have demonstrated the ability to collaborate across disciplines,
ideally incorporating ethnographic design research and working with technical developers
– be willing to work with physical prototyping technologies (cardboard, 3D printing, etc.)
– have some exposure to prototyping with hardware (Arduino, etc.)
To assist with creating prototypes we have a complete machine and model making shop, professional machinists on staff, electronics fabrication labs, and commercial digital manufacturing tools such as laser cutters, CNC machines and multi-material 3D printers.
This is a paid internship.
