NYC Summer Intern - User Experience






MullenLowe New York City is seeking a User Experience intern.

Making copies, busywork, coffee runs—these are some of the things you’ll have absolutely no experience with as part of MullenLowe's Summer Internship Program. Because you'll be doing real work. Real, client-paid-for, heading-out-into-the-world-to-catch-attention-and-change-minds work. And you'll be doing it with some of the most talented people, at one of the biggest-name agencies, in the business.

The general discipline of user experience is quite broad and can include everything from initial research and concept development, through to test plans, site maps, wireframes, and annotations. The UX designers here have the opportunity to work across the entire spectrum and tend to flex one way or the other depending on the needs of the project. Our core responsibilities are to understand and empathize with those who visit the site or app and design an experience that meets both business needs and user goals. We are part of a multi-disciplinary team, gaining insight from strategists, SEO, and data analysts to inform our designs; working with product managers and clients to stay true to the core requirements; and collaborating with designers, writers, and tech teams to ensure the vision becomes a reality.

The ideal candidate is someone who sees user experience as a broad discipline - research, concept development, user testing, design, and documentation - and is OK with flexing one way or the other depending on the project.

You enjoy working on small, interdisciplinary teams, where people from UX, design, copy, tech, strategy, SEO, and analytics all have a seat at the table.

You like to create useful, beautiful things that make things easier/faster/better. You want to experience what it's like to work on large-scale, complex websites, as well as smaller digital projects and apps.

You've seen the back end of a CMS (or want to) and understand how it can impact your design. You consider the CMS author a user too. You get excited about user testing, A/B testing, all sorts of testing, and welcome an outsider's opinion.

Send us your portfolio. We want to see smart, visually interesting executions that are extraordinary and memorable.
