Looking for an opportunity to test your skills with some firsthand industry experience?
Green Guru is seeking an intern to assist in the design and development of its line of environmentally friendly gear.
We are looking for a design intern either in a design program or a graduate, that is interested in learning more about the development of soft good items for the outdoor and cycling industry. Software experience should include familiarity with Adobe CS, Office and some CAD.

Experience will entail a little of everything; market research, materials research, materials sourcing, product concept sketching/rendering, prototyping, sampling and creating manufacturing packages for sewn items.
Training will be firsthand, covering all aspects of bag and accessory development. The intern will be able to practice and develop these skills in close proximity to the supervisor who will review the work performed and provide key notes and critiques on the jobs performed. Overall this opportunity will provide a comprehensive understanding of the design process at an outdoor/action sport industry manufacturer.

Located in a fun yet productive warehouse/office located on the Goose Creek bike path just east of Foothills on 47th is an easy bike ride from anywhere in Boulder.
