About Fuzzy Math

Fuzzy Math is a leading user experience design, strategy, and innovation consultancy. We work with clients of all sizes across industries, from covert startups to Fortune 500 household names like Hyatt, GE Healthcare, Microsoft, and Threadless. We work across the user experience space, including design for mobile, web, and emerging technologies. We pride ourselves on our ability to deliver fantastic results with small, agile teams. We’re dedicated to user experience design, from top to bottom — everyone is involved in UX work.

Do Good Work. Be Good People.

Good work can’t be done without creating a sense of belonging, understanding, and empathy. We strive for every team member at Fuzzy Math to feel they have a voice, and we promote a value add culture over a value fit. We have regular retros with team members to give people space to talk, reflect, and discuss issues going on in projects and processes at Fuzzy Math. We come together virtually as a team at least once a month to increase connection and cultivate our culture. Our team members support one another through mentorship, feedback, and collaboration. We welcome changes that create opportunities for us to do better work and be better people.

Beyond our client work, we strive to give back through charitable giving and pro bono projects. We’re also an active member of the design community.

Role Overview

We’re looking for a UX design intern who is interested in applying their knowledge of design in a professional setting while collaborating with a visual design intern and our team of full-time designers and project managers. Over 12 weeks during the summer, the UX design intern will apply the human-centered design (HCD) process on a project with a non-profit client, gain exposure to other projects across industries and platforms, and receive mentorship and support from experienced designers along the way. The UX design intern will be offered learning and growth opportunities focused on research, strategy, and interaction design.

    - Synthesizing research findings into user personas, scenarios, and journey maps
    - Creating low-fidelity wireframes and linking them together into clickable prototypes
  • Gain exposure to the visual design phases of the HCD process
  • Conceptualize, present, and explain design decisions effectively, internally and with clients
  • Interest in contributing to the culture and success of Fuzzy Math outside of client projects
  • Collaborate, communicate, and provide direct feedback with other UX and Visual designers
  • Interest and experience in solving complex problems
  • Strength in storytelling and presenting work and ideas
  • Collaborate seamlessly with small project teams and work with team leads to drive projects forward
  • Critically think through and execute on feedback from team members and clients

What You Will Gain

  • Project work that can be added to a design portfolio
  • A better understanding of working at a UX design consultancy firm
  • 1:1 mentorship guidance from Fuzzy Math designers
  • Enhanced design and consulting skills through practice and feedback


  • Available to work full-time for 10-12 weeks over the summer starting in June (exact start and end date can be flexible based on candidate’s availability)
  • Able to work core working hours of 9am-5pm local US time
  • Currently authorized to work in the United States (no sponsorships are available for this position)
  • Can show design work that has utilized the human-centered design process
  • Working knowledge of Sketch, Figma, Adobe Creative Suite, or other industry-relevant design tools

Competitive Qualities

  • Skills in high-fidelity UI production and prototyping (using Figma a plus)
  • General knowledge of the visual design process as it applies to the UX design field

What We Care About

  • Your passion for design and the HCD process
  • Your empathy for users
  • Your interest in working at Fuzzy Math
  • Your ability to show and talk through your thought process
  • What you value
  • And most importantly *insert your name here*

What We Care Less About

  • Whether you have a degree
  • Where you went to school

Benefits & Perks

  • Paid ($25/hour), full-time opportunity
    • Note: Additional benefits such as health insurance and 401k are not provided
  • Fully remote position
  • Flexible hours: We strive for a good work / life balance and understand when someone needs to arrive late or leave early based on other circumstances. We have employees in a variety of time zones across the US, but have a core set of hours ( 11 am CT-3 pm CT) to facilitate project team collaboration
  • Remote team activities: We have taken the same playful spirit of our team outings and have brought them to the comfort of our homes! We have held events that involve virtual storytelling workshops and game-based play like pictionary, scavenger hunts, jeopardy, and trivia! (We can get pretty competitive with the trivia games).
