UX/UI Internship

Quadio is a new social streaming platform designed to transform how music is created, discovered, and enjoyed. Harnessing the power of existing communities, starting with college campuses, Quadio introduces a powerful, easy, and efficient way for artists to find each other and expand their audiences, and a fun, gamified way for music fans to find and share everything from cool and relevant new stuff to the next big thing. 


Quadio is looking for a UI/UX Design Intern to join its Product Team starting Summer 2020. In this role, the UI/UX Design intern will assist the Product Team in exploring and developing key future features that will be implemented post-launch. This internship is an incredible opportunity to gain powerful experience in UI/UX design at a young, fast-growing company. 


The ideal candidate is a self-described music enthusiast who will thrive in a fast-paced, ever-changing startup environment and is working towards or recently graduated with a degree in User Experience or Design. This intern should be able to commit at least 20 hours per week, although there is room for more flexible hours/duration.


What you will be doing: 


The UI/UX Design Intern will work closely with the Product Team, Marketing Team, Quadio Users, CEO, and Founders, learning to brainstorm, conceptualize, and develop new and exciting artist- and listener-focused features for Quadio’s platform. This intern will assist in creating mock-ups and early wireframes to articulate vision dependencies and design for evaluation and possible implementation by the product and engineering teams. 


Who you are:

  • Currently enrolled at or recently graduated from an accredited college or university. 

  • A major in User Experience or Design.

  • A strategic thinker with a big picture mindset and acute attention to detail.

  • Clear communication skills with the ability to articulate thinking behind creative concepts. 

  • UI/UX design experience including a portfolio of work (online or PDF format) that you can share with Quadio. Applications without a portfolio are unlikely to be considered.

  • Familiar with and comfortable using Sketch. 

  • Local to NYC -- this job is not currently accepting remote applicants. 

  • Able to legally work in the United States.


Why you want to work for us:


At Quadio, our motto from Day One has been #makemusicmakefriends because we believe music, joy, understanding, fun, and humanity are inextricably linked, and we live those values in everything we do. Working for us, you will be immersed in a positive, upbeat, music-oriented culture committed to helping every employee grow with us as we prepare to launch in 2020 and everyday thereafter. You will gain invaluable experience growing a business in the music-tech space, and will have opportunities to network and learn from top professionals in the music and business industries.

Start date is flexible. This is a paid, part-time internship for Summer 2020. There is no guarantee of permanent employment at the end of the internship.
