We are looking for a full-time position to work in our Chelsea office.
Be in touch here info at diagram office dot com.
We’re small so being an intern here means you’ll be IN it. We work hard when we have to, and believe that sometimes it’s a necessity to head out to an event or film for some inspiration.
You will work closely with the partners on projects ranging from healthcare companies to individual doctors. You’ll have exposure to a wide range of capabilities such as what it takes to get a co-creation session with patients off the ground and how to design for behaviors. You might even learn to make a mean green smoothie (training required).
If you’ve got the following, we’re keen to meet you:
Experience in healthcare is a plus, but not required
No fear of jumping in, even when the water is cold, rough, and it’s foggy outside
Be self-initiated and independent
Be willing to learn and be challenged
We’re looking for someone to be present in our space at least 2-3 days a week. We plan on putting in the time and energy to expose you to as much design and healthcare as you can stand.
If you’re interested, the first step is to submit a resume, cover letter, and portfolio to info at
