We are seeking a hands-on Creative Designer with a broad range of skills, capable of being the design lead on new themed entertainment and exhibit projects. Strong graphic and spatial design skills are a must.

The work is highly creative and requires an independent thinker who will self-start and work largely unsupervised with excellent collaboration skills. There's no room for ego here, as we all do "whatever needs to be done" to produce a winning guest experience. The elements we build are highly interactive, with mechanical and electrical components integrated within.

Responsibilities will include brainstorming, researching, sketching/rendering, and concept development - a wide variety of early stage project creative work. Producing drawings, specifications, and documentation for all project stages. Game design, graphic design (Adobe Creative Suite), and set design (CAD and Sketch-Up experience helpful) may play a role, depending on the project needs. While a specific college degree is not required, relevant education is valued.

An individual who is able to take an active role in the "design" as well as the "build" phases is a good fit for our multi-disciplinary team. Our work is highly varied from project to project, with the opportunity for the right individual to define their niche here in this rapidly growing company.
