Company: Meow Wolf
Location: Santa Fe, NM
The Lighting Systems Designer position will oversee all lighting systems design for all Meow Wolf projects. This includes design, drafting, and/or review of lighting systems and effects systems for Meow Wolf operational facilities, exhibitions, events, traveling exhibits/shows, and other special projects. Additionally, this position will review installation of lighting systems to make sure they are installed as designed, and be a touch point for tech maintenance and/or operations staff who service and maintain lighting equipment.
This role parallels the Electrical Project Designer role but focuses on lighting systems rather than line voltage, low voltage, and network systems. These two roles will work hand-in-hand when designing/reviewing electrical and lighting systems for Meow Wolf projects. This position is half drafting and half project coordination. In addition to design, this position will be the point person for lighting systems conversations and liaise with the Meow Wolf Design and Tech teams as well as external project architects, engineers, and contractors to ensure the success of lighting systems design and implementation for all Meow Wolf projects.
This position requires excellent design, communication, and organization skills, as well as a high level of focus and follow-through. Initially this position will work closely with the IT & Infrastructure Director to learn Meow Wolf’s organizational design standards, process, and culture. Once established, there will be opportunity to grow with the organization and take on more responsibility as is pertains to audiovisual systems design and construction.
We are in the process of developing our department and streamlining our workflow. The ideal candidate will be an integral part of this growth. As we are in the beginning stages of the department’s expansion, this is an exciting opportunity to get involved and participate in building a strong, effective team that supports the entire company.
