Leapfrog is conducting its first-ever UX Design Internship. This time, we are making this position available only for women. It will be solely conducted by a team of highly talented and experienced women from different departments here at Leapfrog. This is our initiative to honor the hard work and dedication women show despite facing several gender biases and stereotypes.
We are looking for talents who have a strong passion for designing a smooth experience to bridge the gap between users, products, and technology. With help from our incredible mentors, you will receive basic to advanced training in the UX/UI field. You will also get an opportunity to work on real-time projects in the company.

What type of projects will I be working on?
As a part of this internship, candidates will be assigned to various real-time projects. More information will be disclosed during the internship.

Yes, all the interns will be rightly compensated.
Note: Interns do not need to pay any application fee or internship fee to the company.

Can the schedule be adjusted if my college starts or if I have exams in the middle of my internship?

Do I need to commute to the office every day?
Even though the program is mostly remote due to COVID-19, this is not a remote-only job. All interns should be able to work from the office when required.
Do I need my own laptop?
Yes, you should have your own laptop. Since we will be working remotely, basic remote working gears like headphones/earphones would be required.
What happens after the internship?
Deserving candidates will be hired as Associate UX Designer. 🙂
Will I receive a training certificate?
No. But you will receive an experience letter after the completion of this internship.
