Full-time Interactive Developer

at BPI in Norwood MA, (Boston Metro)

Interactive Developer Job Opening

About BPI
BPI (Boston Productions, Inc) is a multimedia production company that produces videos, interactive programs, and immersive theater experiences for museums and visitor centers across the United States. Recent clients include: Turkey Hill Dairy, Hershey Chocolate Company, Smithsonian Institution, College Basketball Hall of Fame, and the International Spy Museum.  We are looking for an experienced interactive developer to join our staff.

Description of the Position
Our work combines Flash, video, content management as well as physical interfaces. We’re looking for someone to join our team with a broad range of technical abilities – but with a strong focus on being able to combine multiple programming languages with a database system to produce a complete solution. This is someone who is proficient in SQL, PHP, has a general understanding of IT networking and has some experience programming in Actionscript. Most importantly, this person is not afraid to self-explore technologies he or she doesn't know and learn on his or her own.

Here are some examples of some of the challenging projects we’ve done:

– A set of interactive kiosks which allow a visitor to first create their own ice-cream flavor, design packaging, and finally film a commercial in front of a green screen.

--a multi-user map table that allows up to four users to explore the history of the town of Hershey through photos, video and other rich media.

--an interactive presidential desk that teaches visitors about Teddy Roosevelt’s policy decisions and allows them to photograph and email an image of themselves as president.

As an interactive developer, you will program touch-screen applications, websites, and other multimedia programs. You’ll also be key in building custom applications to allow institutions to manage their own content and allow the programs to grow over time. As a valued member of the production team you will participate in creative development, programming, prototyping software and hardware, and ensuring proper QC of deliverables.


A basic understanding of IT networking.

SQL Experience.

Web scripting experience.

A strong understanding of Drupal, programming and editing custom modules.

Java development experience

Protocol Recognition and use of 3rd party libraries to implement protocols. (We are constantly creating applications that send e-mail, upload files and communicate between different instances of flash applications.)

Experience programming in Actionscript 3, Flex, and/or a solid object oriented programming methodology.

Good to have

Knowledge of cryptography

Experience developing for mobile devices

Computer Hardware experience

Electronics Experience

Basic Audio and Video Editing Skills

Understanding of graphical editing software such as Photoshop and Illustrator.

Linux Experience

Excellent communication skills and the ability to collaborate are extremely important as a project team may include a producer, video editor, graphic designer, scriptwriter, and the interactive developer. 

We don’t need you to know it all, but an adventurous spirit is important. We take on a lot of challenging projects that are different than anything we’ve done before, so if you like sticking to just web development, or don’t feel comfortable with integrating multiple technologies, then this probably isn’t the job for you.
