An opportunity has arisen for interns to join GFI’s Product Studios in the position of ‘User Experience and GUI Designer’.

You will gain significant experience in one of Malta’s leading software houses as well as hands on exposure to roles such as UI designers, HCI researchers and graphic artists. This internship enhances your future work opportunity prospects through the experience gained. This internship may also be your gateway to a future position within the GFI Software.
Who we are looking for:
If you have an inquisitive personality and innovative mindset, a flair for design and eagerness towards making things look nice and an outgoing personality with strong problem solving skills, you might be the one we are looking for. Expertise in the use of graphic/creative design tools such as Adobe Creative Suite, wire framing and prototyping tools as Axure/Balsamic will be considered an asset. Additionally, if you have front-end coding abilities using HTML/CSS/JScript/JQuery and/or mobile app development will be considered strong assets.
