ESI Design is one of the world’s foremost experience design firms. As an interdisciplinary team of problem solvers, designers, and doers we work at the intersection of physical, digital and social design.

Whether we are inspiring customer-centric innovation for international corporations or inventing new ways to activate public institutions, our mission is the same — to inspire conversation, collaboration, and action.

The sketches will be for traditional screen-based experiences as well as non-traditional displays, physical and sensor driven experiences.

The Creative Coder should be able to contribute to creative concepts by providing innovative ideas that can be executed but which push at the boundaries of what is possible. The candidate should be aware of the latest software technologies and the opportunities that they present to broaden our designs. Knowledge of front end and back end software and media platforms, as well as supporting hardware, and its limitations is necessary.
