IDEO Tokyo is looking for a Japanese/English Bilingual Business Design Intern to join us for the summer of 2022. The ideal candidate loves to craft and build new businesses and understands how (and why) designing products and services can drive strategic growth for our clients. We are looking for someone with a depth of experience in business model design, market analysis, and developing and launching new products and services.
IDEO Tokyo’s mission is to help enable change in Japan through design and creativity. As part of a small studio that is still growing, this person will work closely with designers that come from various disciplines, in a non-rules based environment of innovation. Together, we dream up and make the future tangible, by designing new businesses that make a difference for both our users and clients.
What you can expect from the process: In early/mid April, we will notify candidates if they are moving forward in the process or not. Candidates who advance to a first round interview will have a 30 minute phone conversation with a member of our team about their background and their interest in the role. Candidates who advance to the second round will have a mix of case interviews and behavioral interviews by video or in-person. Third round will be with the members of the IDEO Tokyo's leadership team. Summer internships are approximately 12 weeks in length. The start and end dates are slightly flexible.
