We have a vision for changing how project managers see the world.  Let’s make it a reality. 

Inline is recruiting Computer Science, Design, and MBA students to help us realize our vision of a functionally beautiful scheduling tool for project-based businesses. 

Our goal is enabling project managers to effortlessly assign personnel and resources to projects, while gaining new visibility into how those projects are performing. Our initial target market will be the construction industry. We believe that our product satisfies a large unmet need.

Team members will receive valuable experience, thoughtful mentorship, and career guidance.  This is an excellent opportunity to build a portfolio for anyone interested in software development, UX, or product management. 

Position – UX and Product Design Intern

Inline is recruiting a User Experience Designer to join our development team.  The User Experience Designer will be skilled with modern design tools such as Adobe Illustrator, Adobe XD, Sketch, or InVision.  A good working knowledge of HTML and CSS is desirable, along with the ability to write User Stories and conduct interviews.  A design portfolio demonstrating a strong understanding of data-driven design is a plus.  

What you will do

You will be part of a software development team utilizing Lean UX / Agile to build a working Minimum Viable prototype (MVP).  Inline has already developed a low-fidelity prototype from which you will develop and test hypotheses.  A typical Lean UX process involves:  

  1. Discovery – Create a conceptual model for the user’s experience through storyboarding, user analysis, and sketch work 
  2. Wireframe – Develop use cases, workflows, and site maps while identifying major user interactions with the product
  3. Prototype – Use visual design to create icons and style guides.  Develop screen mock-ups and transition to HTML prototypes.  
  4. Internal Validation – Get quick and frequent feedback from executive and team member.  Stand up daily Scrum meetings and write clean code. 
  5. Test Externally – Meet with customers, find niche groups of target users.  Develop A-B testing, surveys, and other feedback systems
  6. Summarize – Validate and learn from user behavior.  Create product roadmap and capture knowledge with documentation and wikis. 
  7. Iterate – Plan and move to the next cycle of development by incorporating one or all of the previous steps

We are here to help you succeed

Our team values your time and effort.  We are fully dedicated to providing you with support and guidance throughout the project, and after its completion.  

We will co-ordinate efforts between teams ensuring that work loads are appropriate and provide the resources required for the team’s success. For example, Inline will host guest speakers with industry experts to answer questions about the project, along with broader insight into career progression.  

Inline will also give guidance on best practices in project management, and provide infrastructure for efficient communication, knowledge capture, and presentation.  

Additional Requirements

This will be a remotely administered full-time internship for the duration of the summer. We will be able to accommodate different schedules and time zones including your academic calendar. You will need a quiet workspace with fast internet, webcam, and a microphone for video calls. 

This role is compensated purely on experience, and you will receive considerable levels of autonomy and ownership over your projects. Due to current market conditions, there will not be any other compensation for this role. We will be happy to provide recommendation letters, references, and resume items for your time at Inline. 

Next Steps

We’ve worked in numerous start-ups and established companies, and we know what it takes to bring a solid product to market. We also know that generating fresh ideas requires people who march to the beat of a different drum.  At Inline, we prefer intelligence, creativity, and a willingness to grow to industry experience.
