The opportunity

The importance of design is changing at a rapid pace. Increasing expectations to stand out visually is impacting how we create and share stories, promote a business or cause, build brands, and engage with our audience. Spark is a next generation content creation platform used by millions of students, small businesses, and social media marketers who want a fast, fun, and frictionless solution. We’re looking for an Experience Design Intern to join our team for the summer of 2021! This is the opportunity of your early career to have an immediate impact on an exciting product with some of the best product and design leaders in the industry. In this role you’ll own a project start to finish with guidance from your x-functional peers and design mentor. You will learn by doing - with a greater sense of how design drives business outcomes, how data informs decisions, and how visual communication and storytelling leads to influence.

About Spark Our mission is to give a voice to the next generation of visual communicators. We’re talking students, non-profits, small businesses, digital marketers, bloggers - who want to create flyers, social graphics, videos, presentations, event recaps, and much more. Our users want professional-looking results to stand out and engage with their audiences but don’t have time to learn professional design products. Learn more at http://spark.adobe.com/
