Description

The Peabody Essex Museum is seeking an extremely creative and strategic thinker to be part of our award-winning Integrated Media Department. Come create the transformative museum experiences that PEM is known for and help define PEM’s future as we move forward with our $650 million Campaign to advance the museum’s mission.

The Campaign includes $200 million for a 175,000-square-foot expansion including $100 million to support creative new installations of the collection and several infrastructure improvements to existing facilities. Our User Experience Designer will develop engaging and innovative interactives that help shape the visitor experience and establish PEM as a world-class 21st century museum.
