UX Design Intern

Safe Software is looking for a talented UX Design Intern to join our Product Development team and support our FME Form/Engine product.

In order to provide the best onboarding and mentorship experience, this position will require the  intern to work on-premise at least 2 days per week at our office based in Surrey, BC, Canada. The remaining 3 days can be worked remotely from home.

About The Team

Our Product Development department spans our entire FME product platform (Form/Engine, Flow, Flow Hosted, and Mobile) and is subdivided into specialized cross-functional teams that support the end-to-end development cycle.

As a member of our FME Form design team, you will work with a small team of Developers, Quality Analysts, a Product Manager, and fellow UX Designers to shape the future of our product. You’ll also collaborate with other UX designers to ensure a consistent experience across all of our products, as well as provide and receive feedback. Our team values collaboration and open feedback and we look forward to adding your voice and experience to the mix. You can learn more about the FME Platform and find out how it helps organizations bring their data to life.

What You’ll Be Doing

We’re looking for an intern to help deliver UX solutions that measurably improve the workflows of our users. On any given day, you might be:

  • Building out wireframes and high-fidelity mockups, or polishing up a finished interface to share with the team.
  • Working closely with developers to turn your designs into working features.
  • Helping to design a best-in-class design system that supports our cross-platform user experience.
  • Presenting and sharing your design work with stakeholders to support discussions.
  • Conducting user research to inform design decisions.
  • Contributing to the overall design practice at Safe alongside other designers.

What We’re Looking For

Safe Software evaluates applicants based on their passion and skill with technology. That said, having experience with some of the following areas is an asset.

  • Ability to develop low-fidelity and high-fidelity wireframes, mockups, and interactive prototypes that effectively communicate interactions and design intent.
  • Working knowledge of visual design and prototyping tools - Adobe Creative Cloud suite, and Figma.
  • Familiarity or experience with visual design (UI, icons, illustration).
  • Effective communication skills - you will collaborate with a variety of stakeholders and teams across the organization so it is important that you can articulate details clearly.
  • Passionate about design - You will be an advocate for design and your users
  • A portfolio of previous projects that you are proud to talk about!

Desired skills / Bonus points:

  • Experience with Jira, Confluence, or other development tracking tools.
  • Familiarity with Google Suite - Google Docs and Sheets.
  • Students in their 3rd year and above are preferred.
  • Prior Co-op or related work experience in UX/UI, Interaction or Product Design is an asset.

  • Meaningful Work: Be a part of the solution. Get involved in hands-on projects that matter to you (and us) that challenge your critical thinking and help take your skills to the next level.
  • A Supportive Environment: Feel empowered to share your ideas and implement them with high autonomy and support.
  • Mentorship: Learn from a team of experienced mentors and technical leaders who will support your development. 1 in 4 of our current staff started as student interns!
