Senior Exhibit Developer

Company: Exploratorium
Location: San Francisco
Posted on: January 17, 2020

Job Description:

SUMMARY Exhibit developers are the primary staff responsible for exhibit creation, from idea generation and concept development through design and fabrication. Although exhibit ideas may come from many sources and fabrication may be accomplished in coordination with other staff, exhibit developers drive the process of transforming exhibit ideas into interactive, physical form. Exhibit development at the Exploratorium emphasizes iterative prototyping and incorporates input from outside advisors, public visitors, and project team members including project directors, other exhibit developers, graphic designers, writers, scientists, and evaluators. Exhibit developers are also expected to collaborate on other types of experiences for visitors, including demonstrations and programs, to contribute to overall project and exhibition development, and to participate in developing proposals for new exhibits and exhibit areas. The Senior Exhibit Developer position differs from the Exhibit Developer position in its emphasis on self-direction and independent creation of high-quality exhibit experiences. ESSENTIAL FUNCTIONS Execution: consistently deliver high-quality exhibit experiences across a number of projects with minimum supervision; model best practices in all areas of exhibit creation. Scope work within time and budget parameters. Meet project milestone and final deadlines. Idea generation: reliably produce a wide variety of compelling and engaging exhibit ideas. Iteration: observe visitors and work with evaluators to iterate prototypes based on feedback. Documentation: document exhibits and demos according to standards set by the shop and project leadership. Facilities Work/Institutional Support: contribute to general museum operations, including shop and/or lab maintenance, exhibit maintenance, material ordering and stocking, and equipment upkeep. Flexibility: adapt to project constraints with proactive solutions; work comfortably and productively on a range of projects from grant-based R&D to projects for an external client. Judgment: make timely exhibit design and development decisions; show strong creative discernment and good discipline around editing of ideas; understand when to move forward with a prototype and when to move on. Other duties as assigned. MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS BA/BS degree or equivalent combination of education and experience, preferably in art or science. Minimum five years prior exhibit development experience with a science, art, or design focus. Two years Exploratorium experience preferred. Intermediate shop skills: wood, metal and plastic fabrication; CAD drafting and hand-sketching; prototyping. Intermediate design skills and ability to communicate designs to team members; experience with Autodesk Inventor essential. A portfolio of exhibits that demonstrates an ability to create unique and robust, high-quality visitor experiences, and an ability to find promising exhibit ideas in specific content areas. Excellent eye for visitor use issues, and demonstrated ability to work with a visitor research and evaluation team to address issues. Demonstrated ability to work on several exhibits and programs simultaneously with minimal supervision. Talent for collaboration and effective teamwork, and demonstrated ability to work with people at all levels of an organization. Ability to adhere to budgets and timelines for individual exhibits, and to meet budget and timeline project goals. Open-minded, able to fail and try again, observant and deeply curious. Ability to lift and carry up to 50 pounds short distances. Able to move from place to place; bend, stretch, grasp, reach, kneel and twist. APPLICATION DEADLINE Open until filled HOW TO APPLY This is a fixed-term (End date 6/30/21), full-time, union position that includes benefits. To apply, please visit the Exploratorium job page.
