About Quora:

Quora’s mission is to grow and share the world’s knowledge. To do so, we have two knowledge sharing products:

  • Quora: a global knowledge sharing platform with over 400M monthly unique visitors, bringing people together to share insights on various topics and providing a unique platform to learn and connect with others.
  • Poe: a platform that lets people ask questions, get instant answers, and have back-and-forth dialogue with various AI language models (bots). As AI capabilities rapidly advance, Poe provides a single platform to instantly integrate and utilize these new models.

Behind these products are passionate, collaborative, and high-performing global teams. We have a culture rooted in transparency, idea-sharing, and experimentation that allows us to celebrate success and grow together through meaningful work. Join us on this journey to create a positive impact and make a significant change in the world.

About the Team and Role:

We’re creating a repository for all human knowledge. To do that, we need to design systems that make sharing knowledge rewarding and discovering it easy; that show you answers to questions you didn’t know you had, on topics you didn’t know you liked; and that scale to support the participation of the entire planet. Designing a global ecosystem for knowledge sharing requires a multidisciplinary approach and a diverse team, empowered to shape strategy while moving quickly and learning as much as possible.

Quora designers are thoughtful generalists. As a product designer, you’ll be responsible for what you design from start to finish: brainstorming solutions, iterating on visuals and interactions however you see fit (bonus: implementing your designs in code yourself). You work on everything from ranking to UI, from LLMs to moderation systems. Your design decisions are validated through A/B testing and user studies alike, as we value rigor and empathy in equal measure.

A Quora internship is not your average internship - there is no busy work. Rather, every project that our interns work on is important to the company and its goals. At Quora, interns work on meaningful projects that directly impact the end-user experience. Each intern is paired with a dedicated mentor who provides close guidance and support to develop key design skills. Interns have led redesigns of our onboarding experience, built features like Reading List, implemented site-wide typographical revisions, and much more. From your first week, you’ll be pushing changes to production, and you’ll have more independent impact than interns typically do at other companies.

If you’re interested in democratizing access to knowledge and are looking for autonomy and impact in an internship, we’d love to talk to you. Read more about product design at Quora or apply now if you’re ready!

This internship will run for 10-12 weeks.
