Design Technologist - Intern

Punchcut is looking for a designer who codes, or a developer who designs, to join us for a four month internship. You should have a strong understanding of user-centered design and be comfortable working independently and in collaboration with other designers. You are passionate about data-integrated front-end prototypes or prototyping interactive experiences in emerging user interfaces such as spatial computing, AI, VR/AR/MR, automotive, and voice. You feel comfortable hacking and prototyping in a fast-paced, collaborative, creative design studio environment. As a Punchcut intern you’ll play an active role on client projects, getting real-world, hands-on experience.


  • Conceptualize and prototype, at speed, unique digital experiences.
  • Deliver world-class and edgy experiences for our clients, their customers and the general public.
  • Work with teams across multiple offices, collaborating with multiple disciplines.
  • Constantly over-deliver, surprise and amaze collaborators and clients alike.
  • Collaborate daily with a team of designers, technologists, and creative team members.


  • Ability to rapidly develop proof-of-concept demos to solve design problems and validate novel interactions across platforms.
  • Ability to craft high-fidelity interactive prototypes following project timeline.
  • You’re a delight to work with on a team, but you’re comfortable working alone through most design and development puzzles.


  • Experience coding in Unity and prototyping XR experiences.
  • Experience building Figma plugins, coding in Xcode for visionOS, prototyping in ProtoPie.
  • Enable Punchcut, its people, and its clients to understand emerging technology and how to unlock its potential in new and innovative ways.
  • Experience designing and developing for design systems.
  • Experience using React to build components for websites, preferably using React hooks.
  • Experience coding CSS transitions and CSS keyframe animations.
