ESI Design, an NBBJ Studio, transforms places into experiences that drive excitement and create a unique invitation for personal interaction and empathy. We experiment and collaborate to develop new ideas for high-profile, visionary clients. We are a community of makers that design, develop and construct large-scale, novel ideas. As a studio within the highly regarded NBBJ Design firm, we are uniquely positioned within the experience industry. We partner with pioneers like Barclays, eBay, Beacon Capital Partners, the Statue of Liberty Museum, and WarnerMedia to create solutions for tomorrow guided by our vision: we design for life.

NBBJ is a design and architecture firm, fueled by ideas and a culture of collaboration. With offices around the globe, the diverse perspectives of your future colleagues and clients will inspire and challenge you to be extraordinary and leverage your entrepreneurial spirit. Innovation and creativity are at the heart of our work: creating spaces and experiences that better connect people to each other as they live, learn, and work in their communities. 

ESI Design’s approach to experience design combines the physical, digital and behavioral to create memorable moments. We believe the most compelling experiences are born from interdisciplinary collaboration. As a result, our eclectic team and user-first approach allows us to provide a range of experience solutions and a depth of service that’s unique in the world of design. We don’t do off-the-rack solutions – we create custom experiences that are tailor made for every individual client’s needs.

  • Collaboration with the NBBJ Digital Infrastructure team to determine network configuration is functioning properly for the media production artists
  • Determine testing protocol for media workflow processes and address issues as they are uncovered

  • Work with Media Principal and IT to spec and price system upgrades as required
  • Evaluate and provision cloud services to augment in-house resources (render farm services, collaboration tools)
  • Responsible for technical onboarding of production artists (freelancer or new hires)
  • Proactive communication with artists to find and address workflow issues and inefficiencies
  • Define post-production workflow processes on projects and marketing videos as needed (transcoding, editing, color correction, audio, etc.)
  • Standardize project closeout, media catalogs, documentation and archiving practices
  • Maintain render farm infrastructure and all media systems within the studio

Qualifications:

  • 5+ years in a technical operations role at a post production studio
