Internships

DIGITAL PRODUCT DESIGN INTERNSHIP – Disperse.io – London

Disperse.io are looking for a passionate and proactive graduate to join their team as a full-time digital product design intern for 4-6 months. If you are passionate about creating and testing innovative design solutions across product and business development, eager to learn and aren’t afraid of diving straight into design challenges, this role is a great opportunity for you to grow and build your design skills in an exciting entrepreneurial environment.

This is a hands-on opportunity to work with the product team and build a solution that will transcend an entire industry. You will work on a wide range of briefs and projects, from UI & UX design to data visualisation, branding, video, and animation, so a flexible, ‘can-do’ attitude is a must.

As part of the role, you will receive exposure to many areas of the business from product, branding, marketing to business development as well as learn how to build and grow a design team. You’ll be working alongside the founding team with lots of responsibility and ownership from day one, and get unique first-hand experience around what it takes to embed human-centered design into artificial intelligence-based solutions. Throughout your internship, you have the opportunity to receive regular mentoring and coaching from different members of the team to make your experience at Disperse the best it can be.

This is an opportunity to join in at the start of something new, and if you prove to be a great fit over the course of the internship, we’ll happily convert you to an equitable full-time position.
