Te Papa is building a team to design and deliver world leading, accessible, sustainable and delightful digital experiences, products and services that Te Papa’s customers love – both inside the museum and beyond its walls.

  • Use agile, design thinking and lean tools to prototype or prove concepts, to test the value of possible solutions for both audiences and Te Papa
  • Lead procurement processes for products and delivery partners

You are creative, motivated and highly organised person.  You are a passionate advocate for our audiences and take great pride in delivering educational, thought-provoking and entertaining experiences for them.  You’re able to think strategically, are results-oriented but also flexible and adaptable, as digital is fast-evolving.  You are technically savvy and keep up with the market.  Your clear communication and eye for style and quality complete the Digital Producer package.

You will also have:

  • A tertiary qualification in media arts, communications, broadcast journalism, film/television production, museum studies, or related fields, or at least 5 years’ experience working in these areas.
