Position Details

Situated at the very heart of Melbourne in Federation Square, ACMI explores the rapid evolution and astonishing creativity of the moving image with a vibrant, multilayered program of exhibitions, screenings, installations and commissions, festivals, and public, industry & education programs.  ACMI is the most successful museum of its kind in the world.  It plays a vital part in establishing Melbourne as a global cultural destination. In 2017/18, ACMI attracted 1.55 million visitors to its Federation Square site, and 454,200 visitors to its national and international exhibition touring program.

As we rapidly evolve towards a knowledge economy, ACMI presents its stories and objects in unique ways, spanning the conventions of traditional museums and reflecting the innovation and evolution of the moving image in our fast-moving world.  We are embarking on a visionary $40m redevelopment that will transform the institution, overhauling our permanent exhibition, dramatically improving the visitor experience, integrating cutting-edge technology and expanding our education programs. ACMI’s Fed Square site is planned to close for the redevelopment from May 2019.

We have an exceptional opportunity for an experienced Front-end Developer to join our small team containing a blend of Creative Technologists and Back-End Developers to help create the microservices and tools (the “museum OS”) to make our new museum experiences come alive.  This talented team works across the project team to create and deploy systems for managing exhibition content, hardware, and everything between.

If successful you’ll be joining a creative and high performing team that values diversity, innovative thought and risk-taking.  We’d love to hear from people from all walks of life, who work collaboratively bringing with them a portfolio of product launches with intermediate-to-expert skills in Python, NodeJS, or similar languages, and use of these to create RESTful APIs or microservices.

To apply for this fantastic role, follow the online application process on our website.  Applications should provide a 500-word response and a brief resume, demonstrating their ability to meet the requirements of the role outlined within the position description.

Please note interviews will be held Monday 6 May 2019.
