Senior Creative Technologist

Local Projects, LLC

At Local Projects, Creative Technologists & Engineers form the backbone of our experiences. We work very closely with designers, motion graphics animators, and experience experts, all to bring a compelling experience to the end-user – be they the museum visitor, or the client who needs to manage our complex systems. Our experiences and applications are designed to last for years, and our clients rely on us to build stable, easy-to-manage, and flexible systems. All this requires attention to the best practices from a wide range of disciplines, everything from Design to Development, to modularization and reusable programming, all while ensuring the final experience is beautiful and innovative.

The Creative Technology Department builds experiences that have never existed before, to create environments that feel truly magical. Getting there requires a team with an expert understanding of their domain, a passion for learning and solving problems, the ability to collaborate without ego, and constantly strive for excellence. Our magic is our team.

If this sounds like an environment you want to be a part of we’d love to hear from you.
