Product Design Intern Coda

About Coda

The document and the spreadsheet — the paradigms that still largely dominate how businesses and people operate — have remained relatively unchanged for the last 40 years. We are building a surface that we believe has the opportunity to define the paradigms of the next 40 years.


It will start as simple as a document but can grow into a powerful, connected app. It is an exciting mission but an extremely challenging set of design problems, especially since Coda is not built for programmers. We believe the everyday user should be able to mold it into their personalized tool for work and life.


Coda is currently used by tens of thousands of people, and we're early in our journey. Joining our small design team so early means your fingerprints will be all over the foundation of the product. 


About the internship:

  • Design, build, and ship a new feature inside of Coda.
  • Collaborate closely with our world-class Product Design team, currently a team of 11.
  • Collaborate closely with Product Managers to understand customer and business needs in order to form a user-centered solution.
  • Oversee the build process and work with developers in a tight feedback loop.
  • Critique and iterate on design ideas with other team members, proactively opening up your own ideas for critique. 
  • Explore foundational concepts with big ripple effects to small UI interactions.
  • Paid, of course. 


About you: 

  • Available for a full-time remote role in Summer 2021. 
  • Authorized to work in the U.S.
  • You’re comfortable using Figma, from creating components from scratch to using existing components. 
  • You’re excited about solving complex problems.
  • You have work that radiates craftsmanship, from visual to product design.
  • You’re eager to talk to customers and learn about their needs, frustrations, and goals.
  • You have an owner mentality and willingness to roll up your sleeves.
  • You bring a unique superpower to the team.
  • Bonus: You consider yourself a maker.


Portfolio suggestions:

  • A portfolio that showcases your superpower.
  • 2-3 case studies where you show how you took a feature (big or small) from a problem to a full solution (design specs, prototype or built).
  • Portfolio format: Website, Doc, Figma File, or other. 
  • Case studies:
  • Conceptual, student or personal projects are perfectly fine, and encouraged!
  • What was your role? How long did it take?
  • Show us a clear problem and process: what tradeoffs and insights did you encounter along the way that ultimately led you to a solution?
  • More of: High-fidelity mocks or prototypes.
  • Less of: Pictures of a post-it filled design sprint. :)
  • We’ll likely spend about 4-5 minutes looking at your portfolio initially, so use your time wisely.
