User Experience Design Intern (closed)

Job Description

As an intern in the Product Design team of Diabetes Care at our site in Mannheim you will get the opportunity to work on problems that are really worth solving.

Our team designs better experiences for people with diabetes, a disease affecting more than 382 million people worldwide. And just to put this number into perspective: If diabetes would be a country, it would be the 3rd biggest in the world.

We work on a wide variety of products that help people with diabetes in their daily lives. There is for example a smartphone app to share data with the doctor, a remote control for an insulin pump, and quite a few new and innovative products we can't talk about yet.

During your internship you will help design future experiences for our products as a user researcher, interaction designer or visual designer. You could for example conduct user studies, create interactive prototypes, or design beautiful user interfaces for iOS and Android apps.

If you are motivated to solve healthcare problems that affect millions of people, we’re looking forward to talking with you!
