Exhibit Fabricator - Ideum, Corrales, NM

We seek a full-time Exhibit Fabricator who can help our group design, develop, and build custom exhibit installations. We are looking for a detail-oriented, precision craftsperson who can help us create cabinets and exhibits of the highest quality. The work is bespoke—every project is different and no two days are the same. We often embed digital systems into the objects we create, such as the multi-touch displays built by our product manufacturing team or custom interactive systems created by our media systems department, and the ability to artfully adapt a design, often on the fly, to the evolving needs of these other departments is critical to our success.

Successful candidates will have experience working in a professional shop environment, preferably creating custom or one-off work. They must know how to use tools. Woodworking skills are essential, though a background in metal or plastic fabrication will also be considered valuable. Proficiency in digital fabrication, especially CNC routers, will be highly regarded. We are very interested in finding a candidate with experience in the museum or exhibit world.

We are a fast-paced company with high expectations; we seek someone who is as passionate about the work as we are. Our fabricators collaborate with the rest of the company along with external partners, so strong writing, communication, and interpersonal skills are essential. As a relatively small company (around 50 people) that is fast growing and has a diverse set of projects (and unique products), we seek individuals who are flexible, quick on their feet, and with a diverse skill set.

Salary: $40,000-$50,000

We seek an energetic, versatile, and tech-savvy Content Development Coordinator with 3-5 years of content development, project management, and marketing skills or related professional experience. Your main duties will include content research and writing, media research and management, managing smaller and medium-sized content development projects, assisting more senior staff on large projects, writing for business development and marketing, developing budgets, and working directly with clients. Content Development Coordinators mainly assist on large projects developing text and media content for exhibits and company-wide marketing efforts. You may be asked to semi-independently manage small projects on a case-by-case basis. All project managers and coordinators may be asked to engage in tasks directly related to projects they are not necessarily part of or to improve more general processes at Ideum, such as researching new productivity software, discussing business improvements, assisting in testing and evaluation of new products and interactives, and creating documentation. 

Strong Content Development Coordinators are self-starters with effective communication and interpersonal skills who can work with our diverse staff of project managers, fabricators, designers, programmers, and engineers.
