The Opportunity

Design research bridges the gap between business, brand, and users. You will dive deep into our clients’ brands, their stakeholders, and users, while learning about our mixed-methods research approach. Working together, you will identify research insights and facilitate design solutions that improve brands and show future paths forward.

“Design research creates the possibility to experiment with a multitude of methods precisely where users, context, and brands intersect.”

Florian, Team Lead Research


  • Actively participate in the ideation and organisation of research activities. You will learn from the team and contribute by tapping into previous experience.
  • Start analysis and synthesis of results using methods like textual analysis, empathy mapping, and experience journeys.
  • Support the team by developing future recommendations based on research findings.
  • Contribute to an amazing team and have fun.


  • You are either studying, doing a semester-internship, or have obtained a bachelor’s degree in design, design research, brand marketing, psychology, sociology, or ethnology.
  • No professional experience in research and/or design required. An interest in getting to the bottom of the “how?” and “why?” of a product’s success is important.
  • Openness to an experimental research approach that mixes qualitative and quantitative methods. Keen to understand the life cycle of a product and its impacts.
  • Willingness to travel for research and workshops.

The Austrian government requires us to state the MINIMUM salary for every position. In this case the actual salary is €1,000 gross per month for an undergraduate internship and €1,200 gross per month for a postgraduate internship. KISKA is also an equal opportunity employer. It’s a no-brainer, but important to mention.
