We are looking for an intern with real skill and passion in the design and development of front-end experiences. We need this person to work with us as part of a multi-disciplinary team looking at the last of these areas – the future of work. Can you build client-side and web-based prototypes and demonstrators, on both mobile and the desktop, that will help us demonstrate and test concepts for new tools for work? We want to empower modern workers through a combination of great digital experiences and smart systems driven by AI. Come and help us make it happen.   There is no closing deadline for this post. The post will be filled once suitable candidates are found so if you are interested please apply as soon as possible. Responsibilities While the work will concentrate on client-side UX, there will be the opportunity to contribute to the server-side implementation too, if that proves to be of interest.  Qualifications Good collaboration and communication skills will be essential, along with creativity and the ability to tackle challenging tasks independently. Our implementations will almost certainly be based on React.js and Typescript, and the ideal candidate will therefore have strong HTML/CSS/JavaScript skills, as well as a good eye for modern web design.
