Product Design Internship - Summer 2022/2023 (Sydney)


Every month, millions of people across the world are downloading MongoDB to transform industries and build amazing apps that are used everyday. We believe that making data easy to work with allows our users the opportunity to free their genius and create something world-changing. The database market is massive (IDC estimates it to be $121B+ by 2025!) and MongoDB is at the head of its disruption. Join our team to help us ‘Think Big, Go Far’ this summer!

We’re seeking an individual passionate about improving the world through design and making technology accessible to more people. MongoDB Australia is looking for a Product Design Intern to help us create user experiences that are not only easy to use - they are wanted and enjoyed by our customers too.

As an intern you will collaborate closely with Senior Product Designers to gain practical product design experience. You will determine and advocate for user needs, make design decisions, and balance those with business objectives and engineering trade-offs, to create user experiences that will make an impact in our data visualisation product, Atlas Charts. You will develop an understanding of Atlas Charts users through established user research, competitive analysis, common behavior patterns, and advocate for user needs. Also, you will collaborate with designers, product managers, engineers and stakeholders to discover, define, design and develop user experiences for Atlas Charts, and partner with the Atlas Charts team and Design Systems team to develop and implement your work. 

Upcoming Intern Networking Night: 

Join us at the MongoDB Sydney office on the 18th of August 2022 to learn more about our Summer 22/23 internships on offer! 

You'll have the opportunity to meet the hiring manager, current employees and recent interns, ask questions and also present your resume to the team. There'll also be swag bags to give out to our attendees on the night. Refreshments will be provided.
