Product Design Intern

Vail Systems Company Profile

The human voice is capable of conveying nuances and meaning that just can't be expressed through clicks and text messages. And for that reason, voice interactions have always had a special power to shape our perceptions and experiences. At Vail, we believe in the unique power of voice interactions to create more expressive, more intimate, and more efficient interpersonal interactions. Our experts work with Fortune 500 companies to help them serve their customers more efficiently and effectively through the use of various voice technologies. From basic network services, to state-of-the-art IP telephony, to cutting edge real-time analytics, Vail technology makes millions of voice interactions better every day.

Product Design Intern (Chicago Loop)

At Vail the UX & Design Team advocates for user-centered design in all our enterprise applications, following an analytical process to arrive at solutions that not only work but feel natural and easy to grasp. We believe enterprise product design starts with an understanding of the user's needs, and strives to balance those needs with the real-world constraints of business requirements and technical resources.

Vail's Product Design Intern will support the UX & Design Team in implementing company-wide design standards for application development. They will have the opportunity to own the end-to-end product development of an internal tool for Vail Software Engineers to access and understand the technical framework for our design system. The project will encompass user research, wireframing, design validation with users, UI design, and consulting with software engineers on technical feasibility.

  • An interest in technology and workplace applications
  • An interest in user research and data-based decision making
  • A positive, entrepreneurial attitude
  • A curious mind with broad interests

Additionally, familiarity with the following design concepts and tools will be useful:

  • Design software, either Figma or Adobe XD
  • Prototyping techniques
  • User research best practices
  • Visual design

If you are excited about the internship we encourage you to apply, even if you are not familiar with all of the above concepts and tools.
