We’re currently looking for a motivated intern who is keen on learning about online publishing as well as tech-savvy Web design development. All of our interns have had the opportunity to gather first-hand experience from one of the most successful online publications by working side by side with Smashing Magazine’s editorial team. To find out how an internship at SmashingMag could look like, please take a closer look at the article written by our past trainees Jessica Bordeau, Melanie Lang and Shavaughn Haack.
The internship programs take place in the Smashing headquarters in Freiburg, Germany (Google Maps). Freiburg was founded in the 12th century and is one of the most attractive and beautiful cities in Germany. Freiburg is also known to be the sunniest and warmest city in Germany — right next to France and Switzerland. It lies on the edge of the Black Forest and in the middle of a major wine growing region.
The internship position begins on the 15th of April 2014 and ends on the 15th of October 2014 (6 months). However, we are quite flexible and encourage you to send us your résumés nevertheless, and tell us what time of the year you’d be able to do an internship. Please note that the internships do not have to be full-time positions, but in-house attendance is compulsory (and yes, the internship is paid!).
It’s important that you want to learn new skills, and we hope you share our affection for Web design and development. We expect excellent English speaking and writing skills, as well as some basic knowledge of German. You’ll also be given multiple projects to manage at the same time, so juggling is a plus! ;)
You’ll be involved in different departments and will gain valuable, practical first-hand experience — both in online and print.
If you are interested, please contact Iris Lješnjanin at internship [at] smashingmagazine.com and she will get back to you as soon as possible.
We look forward to your applications!
The Smashing Team
