About Cactus: 

Cactus is an interdisciplinary design studio. We are focused on building new experiences, products and services at the intersection of digital technology and physical architecture. The team structure is unique and versatile -- made up of architects, software developers, hardware specialists, strategists, designers and makers. We work with visionary clients to imagine truly new-to-the-world concepts. But unlike a typical agency or consultancy, we then do the work to actually design, produce and launch that new idea into the real world. This means that we work across the entire lifecycle of a concept or product -- from strategy and design to implementation and execution, all the way through ongoing maintenance and support. Our work is spread across a range of industries (fitness, entertainment, retail, healthcare, etc.), but take pride in our ability to thrive in uncharted territories. Cactus' areas of expertise include user experience design, brand design and strategy, illustration and motion design, architectural design, software development, hardware development, and business development.

  • Highly organized, impeccable attention to detail and demonstrated time management skills.

Cactus is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We wholeheartedly support and encourage the diversity of thought, background, experience, and choice amongst all past, present, and future members of our team and community.
