Esri's 2022 internship program is open for applications!

Every summer Esri's design division, the Creative Lab, hosts a cohort of interns across UX Research, UX Design, UI design, and Graphic Design roles. These paid, 12-week internships provide opportunities for students to directly contribute to Esri's software, apps, websites, and other customer experiences.

A note on location: It’s TBD if the 2022 internship program will be remote again like it was this year or if the program will return to being based in Redlands. If you are only interested in a remote internship, please feel free to apply as that still might be an option.
