Visual Design interns will work on designing wire-frames and non-HTML mock-ups of web-pages. Your work will be reviewed by a large group of people which means that you can get immediate and active feedback on your work. A good command of an Image Editing Application such as Adobe-Photoshop and a good sense of design is required. Send us some of your original designs if you have done any.
Web Design interns will work very closely with the visual design team to produce HTML mock-ups of the visual designs. A strong command of HTML is required. Send us some of your own hand written HTML for a few static pages if you have any.
Testing interns will be responsible for writing exhaustive test cases and performing a comprehensive end user testing of website components. Interns of this position will play a critical role of making sure the system is rock-solid and that there are no flaws in web-pages that are developed.
All of the positions described above will be unpaid. However, should you have any prior experience in any of the above categories we will consider paying you on a case-by-case basis.
The duration of the internship can be from one month to six months. We would prefer candidates based in Chennai to work at our office but location is no-bar if you are game for the positions mentioned.
Interested? Just send us your CV by email to work[at]rangde[dot]org with subject “Internship opportunity — <name of category you’re applying for>.” If you were referred by your friend, please mention your friends name and email also.
