Do you want to make the global industry more sustainable, efficient, and human? We are looking for design interns who wish to create an impact in the real world, changing how people work today and shaping the industry of tomorrow. Cognite is a young, talented, fast-growing software company aiming to build the world's best industrial brain. A brain to empower the digital industrial revolution globally and make the industry safer, more efficient, and more sustainable.

About Cognite
Cognite is a global leader in industrial software renowned for its cutting-edge Industrial DataOps platform, Cognite Data Fusion® (CDF), which was recognized as the 2022 Technology Innovation Leader for Global Digital Industrial Platforms.

Cognite's Global Delivery organization spans offices in Austin & Houston, TX, Oslo, and Tokyo. With expertise across Oil and Gas, Power, and Manufacturing, we are dedicated to delivering flexible, scalable projects that unlock the full potential of our flagship product, CDF. Together, we are striving toward one mission: To provide a digital representation of industrial reality and make it accessible and meaningful for humans and machines.

About the Design team (and Design System)
Our Design team comprises 19 designers and six content writers across Oslo, Stavanger, and Austin. We are committed to continuous refinement, fostering individual growth, and supporting Cognite's rapid expansion. Our designers focus on various complex domains in heavy asset industries, including data onboarding, field operations, maintenance, and planning.

More specifically, our Design System team consists of two full-time engineers and two full-time designers, whom you’ll work closely with throughout the internship. We use MUI as a base library to build and maintain our components while relying on user (designer) feedback via workshops and critique sessions to help develop and refine our shared patterns, which cater to industrial data interfaces. We also rely on the Atomic Design principles to organize and scale our system.    

About the job
We’re looking for an energetic and curious individual ready to apply their design education to the real world. As an intern with the Design System team, you’ll be able to help deliver, evolve, and maintain our design system - an essential linchpin for helping our designers and engineers build holistic and seamless experiences. 

Key role and responsibilities

  • Collaborate closely with seasoned designers to understand the nuances of industrial data and user requirements.
  • Contribute to creating and enhancing a robust design system that ensures consistency and efficiency across our industrial data platform.
  • Work on developing UI components, patterns, and design guidelines that align with industry standards and best practices.
  • Work closely with the engineers to ensure our design system is built according to the specifications.
  • Engage in design critiques, workshops, and brainstorming sessions to elevate the overall user experience of our design system.

What we hope you bring to the table

  • Currently pursuing (or recently finished) a degree in UX-UI Design or a related field.
  • An understanding of fundamental design principles.
  • Comfortable in Figma. Understanding the Figma component creation process is a plus!
  • General understanding of component best practices, including design, behavior, and interactions. 
  • A portfolio (or examples of your work) featuring projects and your design process as well as the ability to communicate your designs effectively.
  • A strong curiosity - Design Systems are still fairly new to the UX field. Get the chance to dive deep into how to build scalable and usable components. Learn how design systems function beyond the designer experience and how to evangelize others to contribute and adopt the system. 
  • A love for games and team social shenanigans - Every Friday our team loves to wrap up our weekly demos with a couple rounds of Gartic or Skribble. New game suggestions are always welcome! We also enjoy a monthly team social where we get to do all sorts of things like painting classes, climbing, bowling, karaoke, and much more!
