“This internship at UIE exceeded my expectations. I gained practical experience with front-end development, working with live servers, and best practices techniques in both coding and UI standards. I was unsure of exactly what I wanted to do after this internship when I started, but my time here gave me the opportunity to discover not only what interests me, but the necessary steps to get there. I had ample resources and advice from the whole team, and I leave here grateful for the whole experience.”
Technical Web Designer
“I can’t speak highly enough of my internship experience at UIE. I was immediately thrust into a position where I was coding, designing, and troubleshooting every day, which vastly exceeded my expectations. My skills have increased and improved exponentially over these past few months, and I feel very well-prepared to apply these skills in any kind of setting. I was hoping this internship would provide a stepping stone to another job, but I did not anticipate just how much I would learn, how much I would be trusted to accomplish, and how bloated my resume and portfolio would become.
If you’re serious about pursuing goals, overcoming obstacles, and making strides in this industry, then your first step should be an internship at UIE.”

“My time at UIE was a fantastic start to my career. This opportunity taught me technical, marketing, and business skills. The environment was welcoming and conducive to learning everyday. The people I worked with offered great advice in all aspects of my intern tasks. I am extremely glad to have been part of the UIE team.”

“My internship at UIE helped me develop a personal workflow while also giving me enough room to explore what interested me. From day one, UIE treated me like part of their family and it really made a difference. UIE gave me the experience I needed to get an entry level job before my internship ended but they also helped me gain the confidence I needed to do well in my new job. Without my internship, it probably would have taken me several years to figure out my career path and even longer to become confident in my own abilities.”
“I am beyond thankful to have had the opportunity to work at UIE, especially for one particular reason: the people. Working on a cross-functional team of people with different roles and diverse perspectives was so enriching to me. I did real, challenging work and learned from books, podcasts, and conversations every day. I left UIE having gained technical skills, a thirst to learn more, and, most importantly, confidence. My time at UIE has left me excited for the future and eager to be a part of a team as engaged, hard-working, and productive as the team at UIE.”
“I came into the internship at UIE looking to move from a completely different career (biotech) into web development, and things couldn’t have worked out better. It was a great environment to learn in, I was immersed in the latest and greatest ideas in design and development, and I was given the time to explore my own interests while learning more about web development practices.”
“It was one of the best internship experiences I've had, especially as someone who was in a career transition. New skills I learned that were essential was Git, grids for responsive design, and user experience methodology. With a small agile team, it was a great collaborative environment and I was always learning. The folks there truly care about each other and that's what I miss most about them.”
“I felt very welcome and comfortable during my tenure with UIE. The internship was well thought-out to give its interns daily exposure to a number of important technologies and skillsets, including version control, HTML5/CSS3, and email marketing. They also supported and helped set me up for success for my move across the country after the internship ended.”
“From the beginning, it was one of the most intense application processes I had or have been through—and well worth it. In fact, every application and interview process since has seemed a breeze in comparison. In my time with UIE, I learned many skills; I mastered the “Dark Arts” of the HTML email; I sat in and participated in usability tests of the new AYCL website, followed by KJ Method sessions; and I was introduced to the wonders of true responsive design, Twitter Bootstrap, Git, and best practices such as clean, slim CSS and the use of HTML entities at all times.
The entire team helped me refocus my developed skills from other talents into tools for UX and UI. The whole gang at UIE does such a tremendous job of developing a real feeling of family that it’s a hard place to leave. However, I am happy to say that I’ve been able to pay it forward by utilizing my gained knowledge to enhance the processes and tool sets of every agency, company, or small creative boutique I have worked for since. I consider myself the winner of a lottery.”
“UIE was a great place for me to start out. I am still very appreciative that they took a chance on me when I was just starting out. I really enjoyed the laid-back atmosphere at UIE and the fact that there was a general focus on researching industry best standards. One time I got to sit in on a usability test and afterwards we all brainstormed on it using the KJ method with tons of post-its. It was cool to get to be part of that. I also got to reconstruct a website as part of a court case. Since the website no longer existed I had to use the wayback machine to figure out what it used to look like, so it was a mixture of web development and detective work, which was a lot of fun. I learned a lot working at UIE (Git, Basecamp and Wordpress among other things) and since leaving they have been extremely helpful with recommendations and references for new jobs.”
