Why join frog?

Joining frog means you’ll be joining the “pond,” a global network of studios, each with a thriving in-person and vibrant virtual culture. frogs are curious, collaborative, and courageous, united by our passion for improving the human experience through design, while each bringing our unique and diverse skills and experiences to the table. We draw on our global reach and local knowledge to solve complex problems and design innovative, sustainable solutions that touch hearts and move markets. frogs prize humour, positivity, and community just as highly as performance and outcomes. Our culture is open, flexible, inclusive, and engaging. Working at frog means being empowered to Make Your Mark on every project, in your studio, your community—and the world at large.

What will you be doing?

As a Strategy Intern at frog, you will collaborate with designers, technologists, and program managers to envision and create new products, services, and experiences. You may work across any stage of the product development lifecycle but your role is to ensure that the concepts and designs are sensitive to both the needs of users and our clients’ businesses.

You are empathetic, curious, humble, and creative. You don’t accept the world as you find it but strive to improve it. You are skilled at reducing complexity to hone-in on the essence of a business or strategy issue. You enjoy learning.

We want you to have:

  • Good storytelling, writing, and presentation skills.
  • Experience approaching ambiguous questions and thinking from first principles
  • Good math and statistical skills, including Excel modeling
  • 3+ years of work experience in any field.
  • Business level ability in English
  • Current or recent enrollment in a graduate degree program (e.g. MBA, Public Policy, International Development, Research, Innovation, etc.)

It would be a bonus if you have:

  • Experience in identifying and delivering on growth opportunities and bringing products or services to market.
  • Financial analysis and business case development skills
  • The ability to prepare compelling presentations in Keynote and PowerPoint.
  • An undergraduate degree in business, entrepreneurship, finance, research, engineering, social work, anthropology, human-computer interaction, or liberal arts
  • Hands on research expertise, from ethnographic and other qualitative research methods to quantitative research skills including survey design and data analysis.
  • An interest in global trends, from culture to people and business to climate, and how that impacts our world
  • Experience with SPSS or other statistical software.
  • Experience working in a creative environment with designers, and an interest in human centered design (sometimes called design thinking).
  • An interest in technology, both extant and emerging.
  • A second language (and every additional language is a plus!)
