Description

User Interface Designer Intern

Our staff has developed a patented project portfolio management software tool which has a wealth of features to help assure organizations are capable of consistently conducting successful projects. Our targeted clients love our features but we have been hearing objections that our user interface isn't sexy or as intuitive in relation to other software tools. We need to modify our existing GUI so as to create a more intuitive environment for our clients. Our product, EPPORA, is implemented in Java and JavaScript.

This is an unpaid internship for now, however, it will become paid as sales increase over time. This project will be a major plus on your resume. We have other exciting tasks after the selected individual finishes this effort. Not many students are given the opportunity to help build the next significant project management software product in an ever important and growing industry.

While a slick-looking interface may be really cool, the overriding concern, when it comes to user interface design, is “Usability.” Usability is defined in an official ISO standard as “the extent to which a product can be used by specified users to achieve specified goals with effectiveness, efficiency, and satisfaction in a specified context of use.” A well-designed interface should contribute to the following:

Learnability: How easily can users accomplish basic tasks?
Efficiency: How quickly can users perform tasks?
Memorability: How easily can users establish proficiency?
Errors: How many errors do users make?
Satisfaction: How pleasant is it to use the design?

User interface design is critical to our future success. The interface must give the user an appealing and familiar feeling to what they are used to engaging in on a daily basis. Email, social media and file sharing are everyday applications which users routinely navigate and our front end interface should reflect this scenario.

If you are a top performing student in the world of software programming and development and are seeking to put a huge star in your portfolio, then contact EPS
