Graphic Design and Web Development Intern

Getting your foot in the door can be tough, so we’re opening the door for you. We’re looking for a talented hybrid of a graphic designer and a web developer who can support our team and learn tricks of the trade along the way. This hybrid position isn’t a new thing, designers have been encouraged to learn to code, and developers have been encouraged to learn design software and fundamentals of layout and design. The person we’re looking for is a master of neither, but eager to learn both.

Our interns work directly with our designers and developers assisting in many phases of the design and production processes in our casual, creative environment. This is a paid position located in our Bridgewater, NJ office.

Days/Hours

This is a full-time position, however, we understand that some candidates may have the added demand of school and are very flexible with scheduling.
Full-time: Monday-Friday, 9a-5p (40 hours/wk)
