As an intern within Nike's Innovation Footwear Material Team (NXT FM), you will focus on yarn and textile solutions for Flyknit and other performance based knit and woven products being designed and developed for performance footwear. You will be asked to provide technical expertise and project support, including material testing, for ongoing yarn and textile innovation projects.

You will work closely with a broad range of Nike NXT teams to generate, develop, and validate solutions for complex problems, at the yarn level, that relate to Athlete* performance. You will be responsible for determining how yarn properties translate into performance benefits in the final shoe through laboratory testing and collaborations with various Nike innovation teams.

You will be asked to review and present your work to Nike footwear innovators, developers, designers, and other Nike team members.

Emphasis is placed on being a creative innovator and delivering unique solutions to the Nike NXT team. Your ability to work with a broad range of functions, personalities, and technologies is a key aspect of this intern position.

We do the math and the art, the research and the refining, the conception and the crafting — everything that goes into creating great design for an entire world of sport. Individually, we are hundreds of creatives, from diverse experiences and design disciplines, creating the products, communication and experiences you see every day. Together, we are a world-class design community like no other, open to innovative ideas and to those willing to expand the conversation—or start a new one. Wonder if you're one of them? We do too. As a Nike Apparel Design Intern, you'll create or refresh existing designs that reflect Nike's design philosophy and inspire targeted consumers. You will execute design projects with the intent that they will go to market. You'll have the opportunity to research consumer/athlete and market needs based on a design brief. You also work on an individual design project that will culminate in a Design Gallery Show, and a cross-functional project that will be presented to Nike Executive Leadership at the end of the program. In order to complete the application process, we need to receive a portfolio from you.
