User Science Researcher / Experience Design Intern/Assistant

Design/Creative | San Francisco, CA | Internship

Job Description

 

Looking to get your feet wet in the startup world?

Apply for our Data Science & User Testing Design Internship in SF

FanBridge is a communications platform that helps influencers like Lady Gaga, John Legend, Linkin Park, and Dave Matthews band (and some 100,000 other clients) engage and build their fan base. 

Currently we manage over 130,000,000 fan emails and 250,000,000+ Facebook fans.  Hooked yet?   We're a rapidly growing startup, and we want talent on our team.  

Interns will work in either our SF office and assist the design department with testing upcoming designs, monitoring and figuring out data on existing products, and figuring out where improvements could be made.  Given the hands-on nature of this position, this is a great way to gain work experience at a rapidly growing tech/music company. 

What we are looking for

  • You love to dive into the data and science of design.
  • You're interested in user testing and user experience refinement.
  • You're ridiculously organized.  
  • You have an interest in design and information architecture. 
  • Your high EQ enhances your character.
  • You get it done.  Period.
  • (Oh, and you must have your own laptop you can use…)

Other Information

  • This is an unpaid internship (college credit is ok)
  • This internship will start as soon as you are available.
  • If you are awesome, there is a very good chance this can lead to a part time or full time job (we've ended up hiring most of our superstar interns)
  • We do a lot of fun things as a company. You will certainly be involved in these regular activities.
  • Position requires at least 15 hours a week (or more, if you can swing it - we figure the more involved you are, the better for everyone!).

When you apply, please include your resume, portfolio, and a cover letter you'd actually want to read…!

Why you want to work here

We could give you a little blurb about what FanBridge.com is, but since you’re a go getter we know you’ll just do your research on us.  What we will give you insight into is what it’s like here...

Reason #1:  Because you're the best at what you do.  Because a small startup means everyone's work matters.  Because you want to *want* to go to work every day.

Reason #2:  Because we’re not one of those one office—or even one time zone--companies.  We roll in New York City, San Francisco, and Buenos Aires.  Like to travel?  Our employees have the unique possibility of working from the other offices to check out what it's like from other perspectives.

Reason #3:  We get to see our work positively impact the careers of lots of talented people. That’s pretty sweet. We thrive on “wow” moments and take pride that we’re building something bigger than ourselves.

Reason #4:  Because you're up for team meals and happy hours and seeing bands (at least our bands) and, more than likely, ping pong.  Okay, and string cheese.  We have a whole team here devoted to balancing out our productivity with…Good. Times.

Reason #5:  We're a smart crew and we want to stay smart.  The same team devoted to keeping us fun also works to let people know about classes, seminars, and conferences that would a) be awesome/interesting and b) help the cause.

Reason #6:  Working here means working with the most talented (and fun) people from multiple countries…speaking multiple languages…doing multiple tasks. There is no “rinse, repeat” type of day at FanBridge.

Reason #7:  We love where we work and who we work with. No really, it’s weirdly true. (Yeah, fair enough - we may not always love everyone’s turntable.fm contributions, but we at least mock them kindly.)

Reason #8:  You get the freedom to work on projects you’re actually passionate about. There’s something you think we need that you want to take on? It’s yours – run with it.
