At Archimedes Digital, you'll partner with professors and researchers internationally to transform the way we publish and share cultural heritage data. You'll be challenged to design and build 3D interfaces for use in VR and AR applications at historic sites, museums, and galleries around the world. If you’re interested in thinking in metaphors for how user experience can be informed by the real world to create interactive elements that are immediately familiar on XR platforms, we’d love to hear from you.

Check out archimedes.digital for some examples of recent projects we've developed to get a sense of what you'll be working on. We're a distributed team that partners internationally with archives, museums, and libraries, so if you work with us, expect to be invited for travel (such as our annual hackathon in Sicily or Egypt).

Our ideal candidate:
• Has 5+ years experience in UX and game design for 3D environments
• Has published projects on VR or AR platforms in the last 3 years
• Seeks to redefine what VR and AR interfaces look like to continue to make them more intuitive to users that are unfamiliar with the technology
• Thinks metaphorically (and in 3D) about design elements
• Uses VR and/or AR hardware regularly
• Is passionate about a humanities-related field and wants to see the way that humanities data is published be radically different in the future
• Communicates well with professors, researchers, and museum professionals
• Is self-led but highly aligned with your teammates; we develop fast, and align every 2-3 days
• Is based primarily in the UTC -8 to +1 timezones (in the northern hemisphere, that's from the West Coast on the US to Western Europe)

Start your application by filling in this survey: archimedesdigital.typeform.com/to/zvCxKH Applicants without a survey submission will not be considered.

We look forward to hearing from you!
