Industrial Design Internship
Quip’s Innovation team is looking for an industrial design intern to help build our product portfolio, including both existing and in-process products. You will dive deep into concept development, brainstorms, and help create the future of product at quip. You will be operating on a team of 5 designers and engineers to make real an aggressive product roadmap that impacts hundreds of thousands of quip subscribers. You’ll work with multiple disciplines and contribute concepts, thinking, research, and high fidelity form development to the design of our newest products. Those projects will involve advanced sensors and PCBAs, precision CNC, high-cavitation plastic injection, and world-class tier 1 CMs. You’ll work out of our DUMBO Brooklyn office with a team of 35+ team members to support with marketing, graphic design, supply chain, and finance. You should be adept at communication concepts through various mediums, including sketching, surface modeling, 3D printing and model making.
Quip’s Innovation team prides itself on creative problem solving that bucks most ordinary practice. When we envision a product with unparalleled user experience, it requires a rigor of method, a depth of intelligence, and a penchant for delight not found in everyday products. If you’re ridiculously passionate about good design, we want to talk.
Responsibilities and Characteristics we’re looking for:
Expertise with final fit and finish that provides unparalleled user experience across every snap, hinge, button, and parting line.
Ability to design cost-consciously around moldmaking, being mindful of materials, complexity, and part weight.
Communicate findings clearly, with a mind to condense and clarify a mixture of inputs
A night owl schedule that lets you join phone calls with team members, suppliers, engineers, and other designers across the globe
Strong hand-sketching or other concept development techniques
Knowledge of materials, process, assembly, electronics, and production methods
Must demonstrate knowledge necessary to use tools such as SolidWorks, Keyshot, Adobe Creative Suite, and Sketchbook Pro
Strong and effective verbal, written, and interpersonal communication skills
Ability to deftly prototype solutions using a mix of samples, hand work, and SLA 3D printing (Form 2)
Fluency in Mandarin or Cantonese dialects
Knowing best practices for SLA 3D printing is a plus
An office located in the heart of DUMBO with breathtaking views of Manhattan Bridge
Flexible work hours
Your very own quip with an unlimited subscription plan
You will be working in a high energy, fast paced environment helping us make oral care simple and effective!

We're looking for full time candidates. You should be local in the NYC area and able to work with us in-office on a daily basis in Dumbo, Brooklyn. Timing will be June- August.
Most of us aren’t brushing our teeth correctly, either because we don’t know how to do it right, or because we just don’t feel like it. At quip, we design delightful products and experiences to help you care for your mouth better. Our initial product is a beautifully simple electric toothbrush and toothpaste that was featured by Time Magazine as one of the 25 Best Inventions of 2016. With refill brush heads and toothpaste arriving on a 3-monthly schedule, we are now growing our product line with that same standard of design. We pride ourselves on great design and our brand values of simplicity, honesty and accessibility are applied throughout our community.
How To Apply
