Job Opportunity: Programme Technologist



Share:  FacebookTwitter

Over the last few years we have increasingly supported artists in producing digital and online artworks through our exhibitions and learning projects. These projects have taken the form of web applications and games, web based augmented reality (AR), and also building-based AR, VR and media installations.

The purpose of this new role is to provide technology-led support to the development and delivery of our artistic programme across our Exhibitions, Learning, and Public events, collaborating with our Marketing & Communications team to achieve this. The Programme Technologist will work closely within our new Studio/Lab to introduce artists-in-residence to new techniques and possibilities for the presentation of their work, as well as working with our Learning team as they develop participatory artworks between artists and young people.

The role is ideal for someone who has an interest in contemporary art, artistic processes, and a desire to explore the potential of new technologies to shape experimental and extraordinary experiences. This is a role ideally suited to recent graduates or those at an early stage of their career looking to build their experience and portfolio. We will offer relevant training and mentorship to support and enhance the technical skills of the appointee.
