Glossier Summer Internship: Product Design (Montreal)

Glossier is a girl's best friend and we are hardcore believers. The brand is the brainchild of Emily Weiss who started beauty website Into the Gloss then ventured into the billion dollar business of beauty and skincare products fit for the millennial and beyond. Glossier was founded on the fact that beauty isn’t made in a boardroomβ€”it happens when the individual is celebrated. Personal choice is the most important decision a brand can never make. 

Glossier is looking for a Product Design Intern for Summer Program. Based in Montreal, you will be at the heart of the Technology and Design teams and will get the opportunity to work closely with experienced Product Designers to bring our evolving digital experiences to life. Together, you will create functional, delightful, beautiful user experiences across all of Glossier's digital touchpoints.
