MICRO is looking for a Museum Tech Supervisor who will own and manage some of the most exciting challenges in new museum design. They will be responsible for building and engineering MICRO’s growing fleet of six-foot tall museums.
Do you have a background in highly detailed fabrication? Have you worked in museum exhibitry, model making, or prop building? If you’re a hyper-organized, self-motivated doer who loves to tinker and solve problems and wants to work with beautiful museums, the Museum Tech Supervisor position at MICRO is your dream job.
You will play a critical role as the bridge between museum design and museum fabrication. You’ll work with CAD and help to manage specialist contractors, but you are very hands-on and will make sure that MICRO’s museums are beautifully built and running perfectly. From the skillful operation of drills, drivers, and dremels to the application of graphics on Corian, you are a creature of all trades who is excited to help MICRO grow.
MICRO is an equal opportunity employer and actively recruits people of color, women, individuals with disabilities, and members of the LGBTQ community. Non-US citizens OK.
MICRO creates six-foot-tall museums that transform public spaces into interactive learning environments, increasing access for diverse populations and making world-class museum experiences accessible to all.
We bring together scientists, designers, and storytellers to squeeze a vast, complex world into museums the size of vending machines. Then we replicate the tiny museums and install them in unexpected places like hospital waiting rooms, transit hubs, and the DMV.
Museums are trusted sources of knowledge, but traditional brick and mortar museums are geographically clustered. In NYC, Manhattan has 85 museums. The Bronx has 8. The boroughs have the same population.
The impact museums have is demographically narrow: across America 90% of museum visitors are white, and museum entry is often expensive.
MICRO wants to change that.
MICRO has been called a “storytelling machine.” It was awarded the Tribeca Film Institute’s 2017 New Media Award, SXSW‘s 2019 Place by Design Award, and two Editors’ Choice Awards at the World Maker Faire.
