XING Summer School Intern (m/f) – Freemium UX

XING is the social network for business professionals with millions of members all over the world. Help us shape the future – for a better working life! We are currently running the application phase for our summer internship program (mid of July – mid of October 2017) at our headquarters in Hamburg.

A challenging project ahead

At its core XING has a successful freemium business model. We want to raise the experience level of XING as a freemium service.  The internship project aims to innovate, design and evaluate new ways of freemium mechanics and to elaborate a future vision of XING freemium.
Two students, one with a business, one with a design/UX background, will work as an agile team during the summer school. By evaluating the status quo, competitor solutions and getting to the core of freemium, they will set the basis towards the future freemium approach. This base should be iteratively worked out for feasibility in detail and tested with real users during their stay with XING.
At the end of the internship new ways of thinking and realizing freemium should be ready to present and discussed with internal stakeholders.

An inspiring program alongside

An onboarding boot camp, intense methodology and soft skills training, networking events as well as career guidance will round off your experience with us.
