Job Posting for Exhibit Designer at Peabody Essex Museum

Over the last 20 years, the Peabody Essex Museum (PEM) has distinguished itself as one of the
fastest-growing art museums in North America. Founded in 1799, it is also the country's oldest
continuously operating museum. At its heart is a mission to enrich and transform people's lives
by broadening their perspectives, attitudes and knowledge of themselves and the wider world.

The Exhibit Designer position requires a minimum seven years of experience in a fast-paced
work environment, preferably in a museum or exhibit design office. A working knowledge of
fabrication materials, techniques and specialties such as mount-making and related
conservation practices are required. Experience in the integration of lighting and media
technologies, immersive and/or theatrical techniques is also desirable.

The design position requires proven experience in leading a design development process from
concept through final design, and past work that reflects both a refined and dynamic aesthetic.
The applicant’s experience and references should demonstrate effective communication skills
and collaborative engagement with other museum disciplines including curatorial,
interpretation and object preparation. The ability to work on several projects simultaneously, to
establish respectful interaction across departments and incorporate requested changes by
team consensus are also expected.

The applicant should have a working knowledge of a variety of design software programs on
the Apple MacIntosh platform—VectorWorks, Sketch Up, Adobe CS6 suite and Microsoft Office
software at a minimum. The candidate is expected to develop both presentations and detail-
oriented documentation (bidding and to-build drawings and specifications) for PEM’s internal
fabrication shop and/or outsourced vendors, as well as effectively communication with these
technicians during the implementation process.

PEM is committed to diversity among its employees and encourages qualified candidates from
all backgrounds to apply.
