Required Skills
Unreal Engine
  • Minimum 4 years of experience in a design, production, or architecture studio
  • Mastery of digital design tools such as SideFX Houdini, Rhino, Grasshopper, or Cinema 4D
  • Proficiency in programming (Python and/or C++)
  • Proficiency in real-time tools such as Touch Designer, Unreal Engine, or Unity is a plus
  • Research experience in computational geometry, computational fabrication, computational intelligence, computational dynamics, or related fields
  • Working knowledge of university-level linear algebra and multivariable calculus
  • Strong understanding of artistic fundamentals of composition, form, and color
  • Strong commitment to the team; maintains positive working relationships with diverse people, including internal team and external partners
  • Embodies ethics and integrity in all work, respecting both company and broader community policies in all conduct
  • Develop computational design processes, embodiments, pipelines, and tools to explore mediation across biomimetic, biointegrated, and biosynthetic systems
  • Conception: Create prototypes, models, and pre-visualizations of computational design embodiments and methods to guide design processes and decision-making within the team
  • Research: Conduct research to enable and support projects through computational design technologies. Research is integrated to specific projects or facilitates the development of computational design processes used across projects
  • Implementation: Realize design concepts by using computational methods to design embodiments and, further, implement novel computational design processes that generate embodiments (e.g., 3D models, fabrication descriptions, machine interfaces, software, scripts)
  • Visualization: Develop 3D renderings and illustrations to inform and express research and design concepts to the team, clients, and the public
  • Collaborate with a multidisciplinary team of engineers, biologists, and designers
  • Communicate ideas, work, and progress clearly, including by engaging in team meetings, presentations, and other creative communication outlets

OXMAN stands out as a unique workplace due to its commitment to merging design, technology, and biology, creating a unique intersection of disciplines that fosters a culture of creativity and problem-solving.
