“Intercorp operates with a single ambitious goal: to create a strong economic backbone to sustain Peru’s burgeoning middle class.”

La Victoria Lab is comprised of a small multidisciplinary group of creatives who use human-centered innovation to improve the lives of Peruvian families. Partnering with design consultancy IDEO, we help Intercorp – Peru's largest business conglomerate – to reshape its companies and rethink their future.
Starting as an intern is a proven way to shine and become a valuable long-term member of La Victoria Lab. We are always looking for university students toward the end of their studies and recent graduates from any background or specialization. We especially encourage university students who are completing their studies because ideally they will join us as full-time designers after their internship has ended.
Please note that this is a position that is permanently open, but we only look for interns during specific times of the year. Submitting your application allows us to review your information and keep it on file, but we will most likely reach out to you at a later date.
During the first six months of your internship, you will help out with whatever is needed in the lab. You will be given a broad vision of the lab’s methodology and way of working, while you support the team in different activities and tasks.
After six months, you will start to get exposed to the whole design process from within by joining a project full time. Interns primarily work in their field but also have space and autonomy to explore and grow in other areas. After one year, you may begin to transition towards becoming a full-time designer.
Curious, with a continuous thirst for learning.
Very eager, and you take the initiative.
Willing to get your hands dirty and do whatever is required.
Extremely patient, resilient and comfortable with uncertainty.
Highly adaptable and comfortable in ambiguous and evolving contexts.
Able to discuss and defend your ideas fluently in both Spanish and English (English is the official language of La Victoria, since we work with IDEO designers all year long).
WHAT WE OFFER
Introduction to innovation. You will be exposed to different ways of working and methodologies, such as design thinking and human-centered innovation.
Best-in-class partners. You will learn next to IDEO designers from all around the world.
Exposure to the whole design process. After six months of interning, you will start to become involved in a project full time, witnessing the design process from inception through implementation.
A sense of family. We only work with folks who have huge hearts and a great sense of humor.
