Senior Creative Technologist, Software
Deeplocal is hiring a senior creative technologist with a strong software engineering background who wants to work on a team of incredible engineering and creative talent to create experiential work for the world’s top brands. While this position is based in Pittsburgh, PA and candidates outside of Pgh must be willing to eventually relocate, there is a good amount of flexibility on relocation timing.
As a senior CT, you’ll be a part of our integrated engineering team. You’ll use your software skills on a wide variety of consumer-facing projects to create unique experiences for brands like Google, Nike, Netflix, Slack, and others. This is an opportunity for an experienced developer who wants to collaborate with software, electrical, and mechanical engineers as well as a broad creative team.
Specifically, we’re looking for a full stack developer who wants to be hands-on bringing interactive experiences for the web and physical world to life. This role will mentor more junior team members, work self-sufficiently on their own projects, and be comfortable in client-facing meetings. Experience with physical interactive exhibits, interactive content, or live events is a plus.
The senior CT will bring deep skills and experience to the team, but also the broad knowledge of a generalist who is excited to learn new tools and technologies when necessary. We’re also looking for a creative thinker & problem-solver. We want someone who can tell when a project calls for digging into whitepapers and developing something novel and/or when piecing together an off-the-shelf solution for a prototype is appropriate.
In terms of specific technical skills, the ideal candidate is strong with:
- Git, linting, and CI/CD pipelines
- Google Cloud Platform or AWS
- Containers (Docker, Kubernetes, etc.)
- Controlling or orchestrating hardware with software
Ideally, the candidate will also bring deep knowledge in other specific fields, such as: AI/ML, Unity, mobile app development, conversational interfaces, or… well, you tell us.
While we’ve titled this job “senior creative technologist”, we are ultimately looking beyond a number of years of work experience. We are looking for people who recognize the unique space that Deeplocal works in and want to be a part of it. So, we still want to hear from you even if you don’t have 5+ years of experience; especially if you:
- Have worked as a freelancer / know what it’s like to be responsible for all aspects of a business
- Are bored with long development cycles
- Always have a side project and love getting new things out into the world
- Love mixing software with hardware
- Have worked in a client-services role
This position is based in Pittsburgh, PA. Applicants must also be willing to travel to client locations as required throughout the lifecycle of a project. Travel time is approximately 15%.
