Remote Job Description

Skillshare’s Brand Studio is looking for a summer design intern. 

Grow your design skills and launch your creative career with a company focused on learning and growth. As a Skillshare Brand Studio intern, you’ll participate in all aspects of our creative process. You’ll collaborate with our team to create assets for the Skillshare website, brand marketing & email campaigns, and social media. As part of our small-but-mighty team, you’ll get honest critiques and direct feedback to help develop your design skills (did we mention that learning and discovery are super important around here?). This paid, part-time (3 days/week), remote (but generally on NYC / U.S. East Coast time) summer intern position is an excellent opportunity for someone looking to learn the ins and outs of working at a small Brand Studio. You’ll grow your experience in using and evolving an established brand system, and designing for diverse deliverables (video/motion, web, email, social, and ad formats of every kind).   


What you'll do:

  • Use your design sensibility to deliver impactful imagery for our website and videos
  • Deliver assets for our product, marketing, videos and email campaigns
  • Collaborate with our team of designers on ideas and art direction for photo shoots
  • Join our conceptual design sprints and get better working on fast-paced assignments

Why we're excited about you:

  • You’re eager to continue learning and want to work alongside a small team and gain real-life experience
  • You’re passionate about design and our platform
  • You have a strong eye for imagery, design, and typography
  • You love thinking about brand systems and identity
  • You have experience with Adobe CC (experience with Figma is a plus)
  • You’re excited about, or have experience with, motion graphics (plus)
  • You’re organized and reliable

Why you're excited about us:

  • Impact: You will be responsible for supporting our nimble Design Team; by working closely with them, you will gain experience and learn the ins and outs of working in a Brand Team
  • Growth: You will have the opportunity to wear a lot of hats and develop your experience working with identity, brand design, marketing and emails. 
  • Our team: We have a passionate, talented team that is a lot of fun to work with.
  • Our mission: We’re doing work that matters – connecting lifelong learners around the world and empowering them to pursue their creativity.
  • Flexibility: We believe that doing your best work means living a full life. That means different things for everyone, so we optimize for trust, invest to support remote teams, have an unlimited vacation policy (with a required minimum!), and encourage work-life balance.
