Learn at Headway

Apprentice Designer

Crew Description

As an Apprentice Designer at Headway you'll work alongside our design lead and developers to learn the profession of modern digital product design.

We're looking for designers or front-end developers with about a year of experience and passionate about growing a career in technology and design.

Help us make a difference, make waves, and make headway!


The program runs for 12 weeks, in person at our office in De Pere, WI. It is a full-time program, running for 40 hours a week during normal business hours, from Monday to Friday.

During your first week you’ll be paired with a mentor to help guide you. For the first 6 weeks apprentices participate in lectures and an intense set of challenges meant to develop new skills. You’ll spend the final 8 weeks working directly on client projects with our team to cultivate valuable real-world experience. During this time we also teach interviewing and negotiation skills, help you with your portfolio, and make introductions to companies looking for UX talent (including Headway!).


Make a Difference, Make Waves & Make Headway

If this sounds like you, we’d love to have you apply! This position is open to local and remote designers. When possible, we prefer you to be local because we want to have you immersed in our culture, our process, and get the full experience of a professional product designer.

All positions at Headway are open to anyone who can legally work in the US. Headway does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, age, ethnicity, or disability. We’re actively trying to build a culture of positivity, learning, and growth. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply!
