Hi folks! Sorry if y'all were confused about where to chat with us today—we're a bit new at this 😄we'll start threads for office hours each Friday from now on.
Feel free to drop us questions here or in the other threads anyway, and we'll get back to you when we can! Happy Friday :)
Thank you. My question is can I join as an intern with the system design team?

We're not taking on interns at the moment, but if you have finished college and are looking for your first role you can apply for the Systems Designer role. We are looking for people with prior experience in UI design or design systems for this role though (unsure if you've also been working). Another option is that we just started doing apprenticeships—these are six-month career development programs for people with non-traditional technical backgrounds from underrepresented groups in tech. The design systems team is looking for a UI designer apprentice. You can read more here: and there is some general info about apprenticeships on the careers page
