Watershed and the Pervasive Media Studio produce (and collaborate on) a constant and wide-ranging stream of projects: the role of the Creative Technologist is to inspire, advise, guide and help build them. To do that requires a scintillating knowledge of technology, how people interact with it, and the ability to make stuff quickly.
The Creative Technologist works as a member of Watershed’s ICT team, which is itself a hive of ideas, hacks and innovation.
You will have the ability to understand and inspire, listen and communicate and then make brilliant ideas happen. You need to know your stuff and have a flexible, adventurous and collaborative approach to work.
Over the past 15 years Watershed has forged an unrivalled reputation for facilitating cross-disciplinary innovation at the intersection of culture, media and technology. Watershed, its subsidiary iShed, and The Pervasive Media Studio work across the cultural and commercial sectors and produce projects which include gaming, projections, internet of things, location-based media, digital displays and new forms of performance. Our interest is in experience and interaction design. We test projects as early as possible and iterate.
The Pervasive Media Studio is a collaboration with University of West of England, University of Bristol and Watershed Arts Trust. We bring together academics, artists and businesses from across the creative and technology landscape and have hosted some 320 residents since opening in 2008. We have a great workspace, an open ethos and a can-do attitude.
