The Nielsen Company is the world’s leading provider of global marketing information, consumer insights, business media products, and services. The mission of Nielsen is to provide clients with the most complete understanding of consumers and markets worldwide. We have two major businesses, one focused on what consumers listen to and watch and the other on what they buy in over 95 countries. The dynamic nature of how people now watch TV, listen to radio, use the Internet, and purchase products makes Nielsen an exciting place to be.  The intern will assist with developing an App version of an existing web-based radio ratings diary. The Nielsen eDiary is a online version of our current paper diary that is used by respondents to record their radio listening over a seven day period. The intern will work closely with both the Behavior Methods and Application Development teams to design an App that engages respondents, while maintains the high quality of data collection we get from the existing eDiary website. The intern will also work with an in-house design team to incorporate corporate branding and UX design best practices. Further, the intern would attend staff meetings, participate in Nielsen’s online or on-site training courses and become familiar with Behavioral Methods and its role within Nielsen. The ideal candidate will have in-class or outside experience in App development for iOS and/or Android. We are looking for a creative mind with a passion for designing Apps that will engage the user. He/she will work with several teams within Nielsen to develop the requirements for the application and should be able to work independently on development. The candidate should have strong time management skills and be able to confront issues and challenges that occur on projects and work with team members to come up with solutions.
