Internship • Oslo
We offer internships from 6 to 24 months to aspiring designers that want to devote their professional careers to building a better world.
Railway is a close-knit team of entrepreneurial makers, dedicated to help solve some of our time’s biggest challenges. We build lightweight startups with heavyweight impact, leveraging untapped assets in established industries. Our backbone is human-centric design, and we value long-term sustainability over short-term financial gains.
You'll be joining our dynamic team of seven employees, at our Vulkan office. You will collaborate closely with our lead designer Alex. Together, we will invent new startups and scale them to achieve international success.
As a Railway designer, you'll be involved in digital product design, strategy, concept developing, marketing, and branding. With the rest of the team, you'll be responsible for deliverables, including design mockups, prototyping, production of design languages, and documentation required for proper implementation. You'll help invent startups from pitch to execution, working closely with both internal and external specialists. We expect you to assist our research team to explore new problem areas and our family of developers at Kodebyraaet, doing detailed design, figuring out product decisions, and pivoting when new information comes up.
In short, you'll be able to set the direction for the company in years to come. To be successful in this role, you'll need strong collaboration skills, a maker's mind, and the ability to strike a balance between an understanding of human insights and business needs.
We are looking for people with an alternative mindset. Of course, it's good to be gifted, but you will have to be a person who is not opportunistic and instead ready to invest in people and the community.
You are in the beginning of your design career, but already skilled in crafting all things digital.
You have an excellent portfolio showcasing UX, UI, brand and visual design work for mobile and web.
You see yourself as an entrepreneur with a maker's mind, constantly challenging status-quo.
You posses strong functional and aesthetic intuition, however you care as much about the nerdy details as getting things done.
You are familiar with Sketch, Figma and the Adobe suite, but you understand that your most important tool is the ability to understand people.
You’ve got opinions, and you’re not afraid to voice them and stand up for them. But most importantly change them, if they turn out to be wrong.
You speak, or will commit to learn, Norwegian or another Scandinavian language.
We'll ask for some personal info along with your portfolio showcasing UX, UI, brand, and visual design work for mobile and web.
We will set-up a video call with Alex, our head of design, where you will spend some time getting to know each other and dive into questions you might have.
We will share a take-home exercise with you. This will help us get a sense of your abilities, and you can get a feel for the kind of problems you will be solving at Railway.
By this point, you will chat with the rest of the team and share a bit about your background, experience, and achievements, and learn more about the role.
The last informal chat where we will dive into Railway's values and culture. This is also a perfect moment to ask any pressing questions.
Let's sign and make it final.
