    Location Copenhagen

    Position Internship

    Salary Unpaid

    Rokoko’s offering unlocks the talent of millions of emerging creators that need fast, easy, and affordable animation tools.

    Our tools are designed for independent creators whilst being adopted by some of the world’s largest animation studios, like Netflix, Sony, or Disney.

    From the heart of Copenhagen, where it began, to our colleagues back in Athens and all the way across the USA, we all echo Rokoko’s calling – to empower the storytellers of tomorrow.

    None of this would be possible without the humans behind Rokoko.

    Creative, driven, and passionate about what we do, every day we stand by our mission and we’re looking for talented teammates that can join us to build creative tools within art, entertainment, film, research, education, or health. We collaborate with top-tier game, film, AR/VR, and VFX producers as well as thousands of creators that make unique content.

    Dare to join us too, we’d love to have you.

    Interning as UX Researcher

    We’re looking for Copenhagen-based interns to join our design team in our HQ, Copenhagen. We imagine that you’re doing your masters in ITU, DTU, anthropology, ethnography, or something along those lines, and you’re willing to put into practice everything you heard and learned so far.

    During your time with us, you’ll be working in the design team and contributing to the product development processes and you’ll be learning and exploring all the ins and outs of our user journey. We want you to get a chance to practice all phases of the UX research process.

    We’d love to hear from you regardless of your educational whereabouts if you tick the boxes below.We will agree upon a suitable duration and starting date so it fits your education’s commitments and requirements for an internship. Ideally, we are looking for you to join us full-time, for 3 months in early March or April 2022.

    What you’re likely to be doing

    • Conduct usability audits and tests of our products.
    • Early user testing of software and hardware solutions.
    • Identify pain points and product opportunities.
    • Understand users qualitatively and quantitatively in order to deepen our understanding of user needs, behaviours, and mental models.
    • Gather feedback on early designs with users and synthesize the feedback into meaningful and validated clusters.
    • Smaller ethnographic studies and interviews with our users.

    We’re keen to meet you if…

    • You are genuinely curious, creative, and an avid team player.
    • You have an outgoing personality and the ability to interact excellently with users and gather feedback.
    • You can work relatively independently: the ability to make things happen with limited direction.
    • You have the ability to translate concepts and interactions into visually coherent wireframes or prototypes is a big plus, but not a requirement as the role is more targeted towards UX research than towards UX design.
    • You are an analytical thinker, with an eye for a simple yet powerful solution
    • You have a high proficiency in English, both written and spoken.

    We will be absolutely impressed if..

    • You have an interest in and ability to understand highly technical domains.
    • You have a strong curiosity in the domain of 3D tools.
    • You’re passionate about what you do and have an immense willingness to learn.

    What’s in it for you

    • Work with an international team of 70+ talented individuals and a rare opportunity to work with professional motion capture/or other ESP.
    • Fantastic office location in the heart of Copenhagen.
    • Work-life balance – we want you to win both at work and in life.
    • The chance of participating in all events that occur during the internship period.
    • A quite unique opportunity to join Rokoko at the most exciting scale-up phase. We offer a steep learning curve and an ambitious work environment.
