That said, there’s always room for more! If you’re a student or recent grad and haven’t yet uploaded your portfolio, or if you’re a creative professional looking to give back to the next generation of creatives throughout the month of May, you have until this Friday. May 1 to register.

BuzzFeed Product Design Summer Internships

We’re hiring two interns this summer!

Deciding what kind of internship you want is hard. Large companies give you a glimpse of how Product Design is practiced at scale. Startups are more hands-on, providing opportunities to have a more direct impact with your work.

Product Design at BuzzFeed offers the best of both worlds. You’ll be an important member of a fast-moving product team that values your ideas, working on projects that impact millions of people.

Also, as a part of the Product Design team, you’ll be:

  • Working with a dedicated design mentor throughout the program
  • Presenting work and receiving feedback via weekly critique sessions
  • Brainstorming solutions with other designers
  • Collaborating across Product, Engineering, Data Science and other teams

Apply to BuzzFeed’s Product Design Internship

Being a part of BuzzFeed’s Intern Program means you won’t be alone! You’ll get to meet and work with a bunch of interns across Tech and beyond.

Over the summer, interns will participate in Hack Week, Product Design team outings and other fun events with BuzzFeed at large.

At BuzzFeed, we work on a lot of problems at scale but also know how to have fun. Free lunch twice a week, leftovers from the Tasty kitchen, and other exciting intern events are just some of the things you can expect!

The Hiring Process

1. Application Review

We will be reviewing applications as we receive them. We’ll be evaluating you based on similar criteria we look for in Associate Product Designers. Once we’ve shortlisted potential candidates, we’ll reach out with interview requests. For this internship, we’re only considering Product Designers because the role requires having demonstrated User Interface and User Experience work for digital products.

2. Teamwork & Collaboration Interview

Our initial conversation will last about 45 minutes and will focus on getting to know you, seeing how you collaborate and work with others, and understanding your skillset. We’ll ask you about your experience collaborating with other disciplines, like engineers, data scientists, and product managers. If you haven’t worked with these disciplines before, tell us about how you’ve worked in a team.

We’ll also tell you about the product design team, and what it’s like to be on a team at BuzzFeed. This conversation will happen with a BuzzFeed product designer over video chat.

3. Portfolio Review

For those who are successful in their first interview, you’ll have another 45-minute conversation with a member of the product design team over video chat. We’ll ask you to walk us through 2–3 projects that you’ve worked on in the past.

We want to see not only the final product but also the messy parts of the process. What did you try that didn’t work? What variations did you come up with before narrowing down it to the final design? What parts of the work generated friction or disagreement with your team or other stakeholders? Did you run experiments? If so, what did you learn?

These projects can be from school, past internships, or self-initiated. Don’t worry if you didn’t have teammates or stakeholders on your projects, that’s ok, we’re most interested in understanding your design and communication skills.

4. Finalizing candidates

Following these interviews, we will regroup to compare notes and finalize the most well-suited candidates. Once we find a good fit, we’ll send out offers!

Whether you get an offer or not, you’ll hear back from us to let you know we’ve reached the end of our process.


Currently, we’re accepting Product Design Intern applications for Summer 2020. If you can see the link below, you can still apply! Applying early is encouraged as we will close the process when we find the right fit.

You can apply here.
