Senior Environmental Designer (Pittsburgh, PA)
Deeplocal is seeking multidisciplinary designers with a passion for designing environments, and interactive installations to join our growing creative team in Pittsburgh, PA.
From early concept sketches to fleshed out 3D visualizations to detailed interaction design, the Environmental Designer leads aesthetic and design choices on physical interactive projects from concept to delivery. The ideal candidate for this position cares deeply about design quality and aesthetics—whether it’s the high-level vision or an intricate detail. They’re comfortable communicating design decisions to brand clients and internal team members articulately and respectfully.
Candidates for this role must have a portfolio that demonstrates strong physical and visual design skills—including the ability to visualize ideas through beautiful sketches and/or renderings for environments not just objects. While we’re looking for a design generalist, we expect that most candidates who apply will hold degrees in architecture, environmental design, interaction design, interactive art, or a similar hybrid discipline.
Environmental Designers report to the Executive Creative Director, Environments and are part of Deeplocal’s creative team. This position will work alongside the brightest minds in the creative engineering field, including full time roboticists, and electrical, mechanical, and software engineers (many whom are a hybrid of the aforementioned). Additionally, they’ll have access to Deeplocal’s full fabrication facility on the first floor of the company’s Pittsburgh headquarters, where the team prototypes and builds every interactive experience they dream up.
