If you are like me, you have arrived here at the Dynamo Forum due to a curiosity about the merging of technology and design. Since joining, I have found many of you share the same questions I have, and still others are kind enough to share their answers. I am thankful to all of you for taking the time to share your questions and answers with this community.

At bnim architects we’ve been discussing ways in which we can “redesign design”. One way we are attempting to do this is to use technology to better measure and visualize our designs before they are built, but we need to grow our team with experts in architectural technology. If you would be interested in joining me at bnim, and you fit the job description listed below, or any of the other postings listed on our job postings board, I would encourage you to apply.

Thank you for taking the time to consider.

…and a question.

@Jeremy_Nelson How does anyone with zero (0) to five (5) years of experience should know ALL of that? That’s impossible. I am glad you guys know that too as this would suggest:

Filling this role will not be determined by experience only; we are looking for the right fit for our team.

Just to prove my point, I have 7+ years of experience in AEC working as a designer, visualization specialist, bim manager, computational specialist and recently as a developer… and I still don’t qualify for this job. You guys are in for a tough search. :slight_smile:

Cheers and good luck!
