Mark43's mission is to empower communities and their governments with new technologies that improve the safety and quality of life for all. We build powerful, scalable, and elegant software that sets a new standard for the tools upon which our first responders rely. Our users are diverse, and we are therefore committed to embracing diversity of thought and experience within our team.

Come join our design research team this summer as a paid intern, and learn what it's like to design software for police officers, detectives, and 911 dispatchers. You should be inspired by solving unique problems and excel at assisting designers as they gather and communicate insights that put our users at the center of our design thinking. The ideal intern loves researching and collaborating with design and product peers to gain insights that drive solutions with intent to solve tough problems.

We believe we can only succeed if we deeply understand our end-users and the communities they serve. We spend a lot of time with first responders to learn about their pain points, watch their experience and see the real impact of our work. This is a unique opportunity to explore an industry that needs human factors perspectives.
