UX Design on a Large Scale

- Cristian, 2018 IGNITE UX Design Intern - Reston, VA

How did you hear about FireEye? Why did you choose FireEye? 

Becoming a User Experience Design Intern at FireEye has been an amazing opportunity for me to get into the cybersecurity industry and grow as a designer. I found out about the opportunity via Glassdoor and I was able to get a phone interview to speak with two members of the UX Team. I chose FireEye because designing tools for Security Analysts was an exciting challenge I haven't faced before and it was a great way to get started in cybersecurity! 


What is the most interesting thing you have learned? 

The most interesting thing I have learned so far is how the workflow is managed between the UX Team, Engineering Teams, and Stakeholders. It has been quite interesting to experience and learn how it is done within a company as big as FireEye.  


What has been your favorite part of your internship so far? 

The Intern Showcase has been my favorite part of the internship because I was able to present the project I worked on throughout the Summer to a variety of employees at FireEye. 


What would your advice be to a student pursuing an internship at FireEye? 

Keep working hard on your craft, you will get there! If you get an internship at FireEye, you will find that everyone wants you to succeed, so just make sure to ask as many questions as possible! There are a lot of exciting products and services with fantastic teams at FireEye!  


Is there anything else you would like to say?  

Shout-out to the UX Team! They truly have been a dream team. I'm thankful for the opportunity and everything they have taught me so far!
