UI/UX Designer – Summer Intern

Company

Changing human behaviour is at the heart of the most important strategic challenges that organisations and societies face.

Sandtable was founded with the single purpose of providing a better understanding of human behaviour by developing rich and realistic simulations of populations.

We use these simulations to provide the foresight needed by leaders to make better decisions and shape the future.

For more about what we do, see our blog.

Our offices are on Old Street, London.

Role

We are looking for a motivated intern for the summer to work with our engineering team.

The team develops a cloud-based platform, Sandman, used by data scientists to develop and deploy simulation models. For more info on Sandman, see here.

This is a great opportunity to work on an exciting, evolving product.

We’re a small team, do morning standups, and use Trello for Kanban.

Note: the team does not include an UX expert, so we’re looking for a self-starter. But we will offer front-end mentorship.

Job Description

You will work on UI/UX improvements for the Sandman interface.

The project will involve doing user testing, then designing and implementing improvements, and of course getting feedback.

You will work with the development team to implement the changes.
