Blazing Cloud creates innovative mobile products to clients ranging from startups to Fortune 500 companies. At the core of our success is a continuous appetite for becoming experts at new techniques and technologies, paired with our willingness to pay it forward. Over the past year, our classes and events were the main outlet for sharing our knowledge with the community. Today, we are happy to announce our Design Mentorship program.
We are ready to take one design trainee under our wing, opening up a full time, paid internship for a junior designer who can show good design sense and the drive to become great in this profession.
To benefit fully from what we have to teach, you’ll need to be very comfortable in Photoshop or other graphics software, familiar with HTML + CSS, and a good writer. In addition, you will demonstrate the ability to think critically and show a true passion for products and design. These required building blocks will allow you, under our mentorship, to develop into a full stack product designer capable of tackling UX problems in a cross-disciplinary way.
From Day 1 you will be involved in design activities for client projects, under the guidance of one of our lead designers. You will be expected to learn and contribute to all aspects of product design, from research and brainstorming to visual design and asset production.
Given the focus of the company, you will learn mobile design from the inside out. You will have insight into methodologies like Agile and Lean UX, and you will learn what types of activities and deliverables are suitable to fast-paced, iterative design.
At the end of the program, we hope to graduate you into a full time design position with our team, perhaps the best indicator that we take our investment in you very seriously.
