Listing Info

Our Company, Spoke, has an opening for a Graphic Designer Intern who will work with our software development team to design websites and mobile apps. Although coding skills are not required a general understanding of website visual design and CSS animation is expected.

We are a team of entrepreneurs who have a passion for innovative technology and efficient workplace processes. We have chosen to venture into the startup scene because we seek a career that is fun, interesting and challenges the status quo.

The goal and hope of this internship is to find a candidate who shares the same values as we do. Our aim is to personally train and develop a college student to eventually become part of the team full time or at the very least to give you the skills needed to obtain a full time job at any company.
