Archimedes Digital looking for UI/UX Designer (Digital Humanities)($70k – $90k)
At Archimedes Digital, you’ll partner with professors and researchers internationally to transform the way we publish and share cultural heritage data. You’ll design and create industry-leading user interfaces that span traditional 2D web and mobile environments and bridge into 3D environments with Virtual and Augmented Reality experiences.
Check out https://archimedes.digital for some examples of recent projects we’ve worked on to get a sense of what you’ll be working on. We’re a distributed team that partners internationally with archive, museums, and libraries, so if you work with us, expect to be invited for travels (such as our annual hackathon in Sicily and Egypt).
Our current opening is for a freelancer, but we expect this to continue and grow into a full-time position in the near future.
