Intern or thesis student – UX/UI designer for innovative software project
What's the role?
This project is based on an innovative proposal which won an award and is looking for resources to build a mock-up and take the idea to the next phase.
You will work together with a marketing intern and two project managers.
As a UX designer your focus will be to co-define the initial scope and feature requirements together with the two product owners. You will familiarize yourself with Hilti’s Design System and UX/UI principles applied in different digital products. You will develop design concepts and validate these with customers and other stakeholders. You will work together with a marketing intern who will provide market research, customer insights and be your project collaborator for the final product. You will align with technical teams to assess technical feasibility and constraints of your designs.
Start date is flexible per the student's availability, ideally August/September, duration for 4-6 months
Who is Hilti?
If you’re new to the industry, you might not have heard of us. We provide leading-edge tools, technologies, software and services for the global construction sector. We have a proud heritage, built over 75 years, and a worldwide reputation for pioneering products and exceptional service.
With 30,000 people in more than 120 countries, which we’re looking to expand, we’re a great place for you to show us your worth, step up to new challenges and grow your career.
What does the role involve?
As intern in our department you will be part of the New Business and Health & Safety team within our business unit of Tool Services. Our department is responsible for definition and development of services and software linked to our tools and health and safety on construction sites. You will have an opportunity to work with people from various disciplines in global and regional teams.
Your key responsibilities will be to co-define the initial scope and feature requirements, develop design concepts in Sketch and validate these. Your team colleague, the marketing intern, will provide customer insights to support the concept design and be the link to customers for the validation. The output of the result you achieve together will be a base for decisions on the next steps in the feature development.
What do we offer?
We’ll give you the tools you need to excel in your internship, including one-to-one coaching. You’ll enjoy a rare combination of autonomy and camaraderie, as you’ll manage your own project while being part of a friendly team.
You’ll not just be another pair of hands but a fully integrated team member with lots of self-responsibility. From there, we’ll trust you to do whatever it takes to deliver outstanding results. Go the extra mile and we’ll reward you with strategic development discussions and career opportunities.
We’ll support you even before you start with us through relocation and integration support. With the international intern’s community at Hilti you’ll never be bored. Further, the snow-draped mountains, crystal-clear lakes and marvelous landscapes in the Happy Valley invite for lots of outdoor activities.
Why should you apply?
We have an excellent mix of people, which we believe makes for a more vibrant, more innovative, more productive team. So, if you have no knowledge of construction, that’s fine with us. We’re more interested in your ability, commitment and drive to succeed.
What you need is:
- Master’s / bachelor’s student in Interaction Design, User Experience Design, Human Computer Interaction, or related field
- Passion for innovation and software development
- You have experience with UX/UI design
