About Us

Yahoo is a global media and tech company that connects people to their passions. We reach nearly 900 million people around the world, bringing them closer to what they love—from news, sports, and finance to mail and commerce. And we give businesses a platform to amplify growth and drive more meaningful connections across advertising, search and media.


No one product or team works on its own. We consider the entire ecosystem when creating new features, content, immersive experiences and platforms. When all of our products and teams work in unison to serve customer needs and pain points, we bring more value to their lives and our own. Each Yahoo plays a part in our success.


Responsibilities

Product Design Interns at Yahoo collaborate with skilled product designers, product managers, engineers, researchers, and content partners to define the vision for new features, while owning and driving the craftsmanship for every interaction and visual design detail. Day-to-day, you will:

  • Turn broad, ambiguous user and business challenges into clear, valuable and delightful solutions;

  • Connect user research and data insights to design decisions at every stage of development;

  • Incorporate best practices across multiple platforms and devices;

  • Contribute to a design system that supports design and engineering processes; and

  • Participate in feedback sessions with humor, grace and empathy towards teammates and cross-functional partners.


About you

You're likely to succeed in this roll, if you are someone who:

  • Draws on all aspects of product design—information architecture, multi-step flows, motion—to create holistic experiences;

  • Delivers consistent, polished and balanced layouts, through typography, color and visual hierarchy;

  • Uses prototypes as a foundational piece of your design process both to identify appropriate solutions and influence stakeholders;

  • Solves user problems in creative ways that go beyond obvious, expected solutions;

  • Demonstrates high emotional intelligence when interacting with teammates and other co-workers;

  • Presents designs clearly and confidently to facilitate useful feedback while shifting approach based on the audience and desired outcome;

  • Takes initiative and accountability for timelines, deliverables and outcomes;

  • Contributes to the design community both inside your company and beyond; and

  • Desires and takes action to grow professional skills.


Qualifications

  • Currently enrolled in a bachelor’s or master’s degree program (in design, human-computer interaction or related field).

  • Portfolio that demonstrates abilities in visual design, interaction design, prototyping and product thinking.

  • Understanding of what makes an experience good or bad

  • Familiarity with the user-centered design process.

  • Experience with design tools to create design concepts, prototypes, assets and specifications. Figma preferred.

  • Skills such as illustration, photography, animation, data visualization, conducting user interviews, front-end programming or data science are a plus!
