Have you led a museum exhibit design project, managed content creation for interactive social or public learning environments? Are you a hyper-organized doer who thrives on coordinating creative projects across disciplines and wants to build award-winning museums that transform public spaces? If so, being a Creative Producer at MICRO is your dream job.
As MICRO’s Creative Producer, you will manage, curate, and craft powerful stories and ideas into MICRO museums. Your organizational dexterity, creative eye, and project management superpowers will help design, build, and drive the future of museums and public spaces.
You will coordinate and oversee the development, planning, and creation of multi-platform media across MICRO projects, and be responsible for engaging MICRO’s awesome designers and content creators. You will be responsible for bringing MICRO's founders' and clients' creative visions to life, and will play a key role in developing robust systems.
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.
