Are you a student looking for an internship where you can use your skills and have a real impact on the company’s User Experience and journey? Do you love taking responsibility and are you looking for an internship where you can grow with the tasks and gain valuable learning experiences? Do you live in Denmark and want to work in Aarhus? Then you have a great opportunity in the up-and-coming startup ParkShare.
ParkShare is a fast-growing startup in need of a UX/UI Designer Intern who can help us improve our User Experience in general as well as our User Interface Design. We are looking for a creative and customer-focused intern with a curiosity to learn. Working in a startup can be both challenging and thrilling as things are moving quickly. At the same time, you get to share the passion, motivation and optimism that comes from improving the User Experience with your colleagues. In ParkShare, we strongly believe in everyone contributing and having ideas with value. Therefore, you can expect that the ideas and improvements you have will be valued and used to create a better platform. Here, your work becomes reality and will be used by the users.
ParkShare is a sharing economy platform for parking spaces, where private people as well as companies, can rent out their parking spaces when they don’t need them and thereby earn an extra income. At the same time, the parking spaces become more easily accessible for drivers, who need parking. The UX/UI Intern will therefore be essential in ParkShare in order to ensure our customers have the best possible experience when using our product.
Tasks and responsibilities:
Enhance and strengthen the overall User Experience (UX) that ParkShare’s customers have with our interfaces.
Improve ParkShare’s website, web- and native-app User Interface (UI) design. This includes enhancing the look and feel as well as the users’ ease of navigating it.
Doing user research, creating user personas, wireframes and prototypes, as well as doing user testing.
Create mockups and work with our developer team.
Participate in meetings regarding new features for our web- and mobile app. Afterwards design mockups for the features, as well as test them on customers.
Ongoing meetings with the tech team to give feedback on the implementation of your designs, while they are being developed.
If you have an interest in programming, this can also be included in the internship, but it’s not a requirement.
Qualifications and skills:
Adaptability and problem-solving skills as well as a creative and customer-focused mindset to be able to spot areas of improvement to create a better User Experience for our customers.
Independent and good social skills. There will be many individual tasks that still involve a lot of teamwork with different departments, so it’s important that you thrive in these conditions.
Fluent in English, as ParkShare is an international workplace so the main language we speak here is English.
Studying a degree with an emphasis on UX/UI Design or Interactive Design.
Living in Denmark as the office is in Aarhus and the internship will take place here.
We are located in The Kitchen in Aarhus, which is the city’s biggest community for entrepreneurs, so we work alongside many other amazing startups. ParkShare is an international and diverse workplace, where knowledge-sharing, networking and fun is an essential part of work life. Our official language is English. Therefore, you would join a diverse team where people of different backgrounds are able to bring their best ideas and turn them into reality. Just like good ideas, we also value good relationships among our team members, so we often organize social activities to get to know each other on a bit more personal level. At least once a month, we have a social activity during work hours after our monthly status meeting. We believe that this makes us a stronger and more connected team. At the office we also offer free coffee, and if you don’t enjoy coffee that much, we have a great choice of sodas. Occasionally, we also like to share cake together, especially when it’s our teammates’ birthday or we reach milestones.
At ParkShare we believe that everyone can bring value to the company. As an intern your opinion will also be heard, and you will be given meaningful tasks. You will also see your work becoming a reality, reaching our customers, and putting a mark on the company.
Working hours are generally from 8-16 o’clock, but we are flexible in terms of hours per week and will adjust it to your study program’s schedule. This also means that if you already have a student job, we will work with you to find a schedule that fits it all.
