SUMMARY Exhibit engineers at the Exploratorium engineer and construct interactive exhibits with complex mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems, staying within design, budget, and schedule to fulfill the needs of the project. Engineers are the primary staff responsible for exhibit production. Although exhibit designs will come from many sources and fabrication may be accomplished in coordination with other staff or entities, exhibit engineers ensure the functionality, reliability, safety, efficiency, and cost effectiveness of each exhibit. Exhibit engineers are also expected to be knowledgeable of current technologies and professional standards and to have an active role in the maintenance and improvement of existing exhibits, design practices, and documentation standards. The role of Engineer at the Exploratorium is a mix of CAD work, engineering problem-solving, fabrication, and assembly, and the ratio varies by project and project phase.

Provide support as needed to Project Management with regards to off-site logistics and client relations. Solutions/Idea Generation: Regularly implement a wide variety of practical and innovative engineering strategies. Work to find creative ways to bring new and appropriate technologies into our current system. Facilities Work/Institutional Support: o Contribute to general museum operations, including shop and/or lab maintenance, exhibit maintenance, material ordering and stocking, and equipment upkeep. o Teach design and engineering techniques to other Exploratorium staff. o Provide technical advice to help production staff order and build exhibits; promote quality, efficiency, and decreasing costs. o Maintain current library of exhibit designs by managing design revisions, photographing design details, and organizing design information. o Collaborate with design, engineering, and production staff, to find efficient ways to create exhibits. Flexibility: Adapt to project constraints with proactive solutions. Work comfortably and productively on a range of projects from rough, in-house prototypes to highly-finished, turn-key client projects. Judgement: Make timely exhibit engineering decisions. Show strong creative discernment and good discipline around choice of forms, materials, and processes. Other duties as assigned. MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS BA/BS degree or equivalent combination of education and experience, preferably in engineering or design. Minimum five years prior exhibit engineering or other applicable experience. Two years Exploratorium experience preferred. Advanced shop knowledge: wood, metal, and plastic fabrication; prototyping and fabrication of exhibits using appropriate production methods; uphold safety standards. Advanced experience with Autodesk Inventor essential, plus working knowledge of AutoCAD, wiki-based platforms, MS Word & Excel. Ability to effectively communicate ideas and concepts through hand sketching, advanced drawing skills preferred. Demonstrated ability to work on multiple projects and problems simultaneously with minimal supervision. Talent for collaboration and effective teamwork, and demonstrated ability to work with people at all levels of an organization. Ability to adhere to budgets and timelines for individual exhibits and projects, and to proactively communicate expected variances. Excellent sense of value and efficiency as expressed in effectiveness of solutions, use of materials, and personal time management. Interest in science and teaching a plus. Ability to lift and carry up to 50 pounds short distances. Able to move from place to place; bend, stretch, grasp, reach, kneel and twist.
