“eBay Design’s Summer Internship Program immerses undergrad and graduate students with diverse cultures and backgrounds in a myriad of complex design problems at the critical intersection of product, brand and technology. Innovating and crafting within full-stack teams of designers and researchers on behalf of our Buyers and Sellers, eBay summer interns gain very real business experience, a taste of studio culture and a big portfolio boost. Fun events, creative jam sessions, and other community activities spark connections that can help launch lasting professional careers in an environment that values craft, diversity and a principled process.

Just one year ago, Stanford undergrad/University of Washington grad, Julian Body, began his journey with eBay Design as an intern working virtually with our New York studio. After a 2021 summer experience that touched on product design and research, stakeholder interaction and successfully addressing design problems in real time, we’re pleased to officially welcome him — physically — as a full-time member of the eBay Design Family this July.”
