Design Summer 2022 Internship (UI & Motion)

Helsinki, Finland

Wolt is a Finnish technology company established in 2014. We’re mostly known for our food delivery platform that makes it easy for hungry people to find great food from our restaurant partners.🏆 In addition to that, we’ve expanded our offering beyond food into retail: ranging from grocery to clothes, flowers, beauty, and other sectors!

While our 15M registered users all around 23 countries enjoy seamless deliveries, our amazing Product development team provides the platform with beautiful design and services, ensuring a sustainable balance between customers, merchants, and courier partners.💙

To build a better, bigger Wolt, we’re looking for three Design Interns to join us for summer 2022 in Helsinki. 🤩

About the program and the roles

The program will last for 4-6 months — you can decide the duration within this frame. We’re also very flexible with the start month — you can join us in April, May, or June. The internship is paid (3000€/month) and you’ll be assigned a mentor from the team to work closely with and learn from. So there will be plenty of room for developing and growing together. At Wolt we take ownership beyond the obvious, do common things uncommonly well, think big but stay humble, and treat all people equally kind. If this sounds like a place for you, then make sure to keep on reading as we dive deeper into the roles below. If you are finalizing your studies or a fresh graduate this is especially ideal for you as there might be a chance to continue full-time after the internship period.

Product Design Intern, Consumer 📱

As a Product Design Intern for the Consumer mobile team, you will get to be a part of shaping the future of our consumer mobile clients on Android and iOS. These apps are the most visible consumer-facing products we get to work with here at Wolt - crown jewels of ours’ one could say. This will be a great opportunity to learn the ins and outs of product design while perfecting a mobile application that is used by millions of users worldwide. In the consumer mobile team, we thrive for pixel perfection while optimizing the overall UX of our consumer experience with a holistic take, so this will be a prime position for someone who values visual excellence as well as is keen on participating in solving wider UX challenges. On top of working on different features of our apps, you will get a chance to also contribute to developing and managing our design system.

Product Design Intern, Merchant 🚀

As a Product Design Intern for the Merchant team you will have a chance to explore different services we are designing and building for our merchants - the restaurant and retail partners we collaborate with. Merchant products are at the foundation of Wolt. Our users are thousands of Wolt employees, tens of thousands of restaurants, and hundreds of thousands of merchant employees. Our mission is to make Wolt an integral part of our merchants' daily lives. The biggest emphasis will be on the Merchant App, which is in the frontline of the staff experience as it's used to receive, accept and track the orders, but you’ll also get to help in other projects. You will be contributing especially to the UI design of the merchant products and also in developing and managing our design system. 

Product Motion Designer Intern 👾

As a Motion Designer Intern, you’ll have a chance to work with different projects, coming from various product teams. This role is leaning more towards product design than commercial advertising, meaning your work will focus on nailing the product behavior rather than creating motion graphics videos. However a general motion knowledge is appreciated, and can be put in use for making materials such as tutorials or social media videos. This could be an interesting opportunity if you are a Product Designer wanting to expand your knowledge in Product Motion secrets or a Motion Designer wanting to switch sides from advertising to product. 

Our humble expectations

Our humble expectations from you as a Product Design Intern:

  • Capable of using Figma as your primary weapon of choice

    • Experience in other design tools and/or ecosystems (e.g. Sketch/Zeplin) is also seen as a plus

  • Great eye for details and visual design in general

  • You have an ambitious, imaginative, and curious approach to design

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills

  • You have basic prototyping skills in place to help validate your ideas and concepts

  • Understanding of general accessibility principles

Our humble expectations from you as a Motion Design Intern:

  • Capable of using at least one animation tool

  • Great eye for details and visual design in general

  • Basic UX skills will be beneficial

Next steps

Please note that we are looking for persons who are able to work closely together with their mentors & teams located in Helsinki as soon as the situation enables. We are unfortunately unable to offer relocation or visa support for internships, so you should be eligible to work in Finland for the duration of the program.

Sounds good? Here’s how to apply

To apply for the internship, you don't need to have extensive working experience — you can prove your skills by completing the assignment we have prepared for you!

👀 The process is easy:

1 - Complete the assignment; based on your interest choose *product design* or *motion design*

2 - Click “Apply now”, fill in the form and attach your assignment link. Make sure to attach your portfolio and CV as well.

3 - Send your application

Please note that the assignment is a mandatory part of the process. Applications without attached solutions won’t be accepted.

The deadline for the assignment is 31st January. We’ll review the assignments and invite successful candidates for interviews within one week. If you have any questions you can turn to our Talent Acquisition Partner, Jasmin Shams, at 


Do I need to be based in Helsinki? Do you offer relocation support?

We have our HQ in Helsinki and we would need you to be able to work at least partly from the office with your future mentor and other team members. We don’t offer relocation service for this specific program so you should be already eligible to work in Finland for the duration of the program.

I want to apply; what happens after I send my application?

If you are selected for the first round, you will get an invite for the next step by the latest on the following week the application period ends. We will be in touch with each and every candidate who applied regardless of the outcome. The recruitment process includes the preliminary home assignment, interview, and a meeting with your possible team lead. We are aiming to make the decisions during February.

I'm a student/ fresh graduate. Can I apply?

Our aim would be to provide an opportunity to continue full-time after the internship so the program is ideal for candidates who would potentially be able to continue with us after the internship ends. Therefore, we are especially looking for graduated candidates but if you are at the very end of your studies and feel comfortable finishing those while working with us, you are welcome to do so!

We've also been fortunate enough to receive some appreciation and recognition for our hard work along the way: Apple selected Wolt’s app as their Editors' Choice, Wired named the company one of the "Hottest Startups in Europe," Forbes included our CEO Miki Kuusi on its 30-under-30 in Consumer Tech list, and the Nordic Startup Awards named Wolt Company of the Year.

In 2020, the Financial Times named us Europe’s second fastest growing company. We’re still expanding rapidly and are looking for more talented individuals to join us.

Our internal tooling enables us to ramp up new cities efficiently and provide excellent customer service, our own logistics platform allows us to optimise our couriers' work to get you the food you want as fast as possible, and our restaurant platform allows restaurants to offer exciting food experiences for our customers in an optimal way.

We work in small teams with high ownership, with each team focusing on a key area of the Wolt product stack. Each and every one of our product team members has a say in where we are going and what solutions we implement. We work with a passion, but we haven't forgotten how to have fun along the way!
