Location: Barcelona Spain
Role: Product Design
Industry: Technology & AI
Remuneration: On Experience
Pre-requisites: Product Design Experience

Company Overview

Vermut is the fastest-growing social network for older adults worldwide, combating the significant health risks associated with loneliness. With populations in major economies ageing, this challenge is monumental. Unlike any before us, Vermut effectively mitigates loneliness among seniors through a unique approach: our platform fosters real-life connections at scale, is populated primarily with user-generated content, and its user interface is amazing, specifically designed for individuals aged 55 and above. Our outstanding retention rates, user engagement, and content creation metrics affirm our leadership in this domain. Having established a strong presence in Spain we are now launching in the United States and South America, with plans to incorporate cutting-edge AI technologies to further enhance socialisation among older adults.


This position presents an exceptional opportunity for professional growth, pivotal in nurturing a sense of community within our social networking application. It demands a creative individual capable of translating user insights into tangible, real-world experiences. As a Product Design intern, you will delve into understanding our user base, collaborating closely with our CTO and CEO to craft and refine our product designs from the ground up. Armed with complete autonomy and a blank canvas, your decisions will be guided by our core values, identity, and strategic direction. Your responsibilities will extend across the design and development of two mobile applications and one website. Being part of a startup, your role will transcend traditional boundaries, contributing to brand identity and enhancing the visual appeal of crucial meetings, including those with partners and investors.


  • Spearhead the design process for new features and enhancements, overseeing their evolution from concept to completion.
  • Develop wireframes, prototypes, and high-fidelity designs utilising tools such as Figma.
  • Leverage user research, including usability tests, interviews, and surveys, to guide design choices.
  • Advocate for your design decisions, drawing upon deep design thinking and fundamental principles (e.g., colour theory, visual hierarchy).
  • Remain abreast of the latest developments in design trends, methodologies, and technologies.
