Helios Interactive is continually looking to expand our team. We are an Experience Design studio with offices in San Francisco, CA and Portland, OR. We create digital installations for large brands at tradeshows, events, and retail locations. We work with a variety of technologies including: large format touchscreens, augmented reality, depth cameras, physical computing, RFID / NFC, Android, iOS, and computer vision, using them to create cool, and compelling digital experiences for consumers.
Because working in the events space is fun. We execute projects all over the world, at events ranging from the Olympics and Super Bowl to the World’s Fair and more – and there is definitely an opportunity to hit the road and get to be a part of these activations. You won’t be tied to a tired, boring product that has an 18-month development cycle. Instead, you’ll be asked to create amazing interactive experiences with an average four to six weeks lead time, and then it will be on to the next.
Because you like working with a small team and seeing the impact of your work immediately. We’re a small crew that does big, highly visible work. You will be an important part of the development team, and will have the opportunity not only to contribute through development, but in the ideation and brainstorming processes as well. This is more than just an execution-oriented job – it’s one where you’ll get the chance to flex your creative muscles.
Because you have a passion for new technology. As an Experience Design studio, we have to stay on the bleeding edge of tech. We are constantly evaluating new interactive technology mediums, and have been engaged by a number of manufacturers to participate in beta programs and evaluation of new products. Because we encourage side projects. Helios will never attempt to own any code you have written outside of office hours and we encourage our employees to create on their own time. We encourage continuous learning, and provide staff development for conferences or education that our team is interested in.
