In addition, the ideal candidate will have the ability to:

  • Fluently speak the technical language required to successfully navigate projects through the various requirements set out by clients, collaborators, applicable codes, and authorities having jurisdiction.
  • Assist clients and colleagues in a transition away from 2D content/deliverables and toward 3D and digital fabrication (dFAB).
