Some words about Mir.

We are a small and closely-knit team that has set out to create the most iconic images in architecture today. Our goal is to propagate architecture and architects that aspire towards the different. Our focus has always been to cultivate independent and self-reliant artists who can master all aspects of the craft -and to help each team member find a good work/life balance.

Mir is looking for experienced Senior Artist to join our team in 2025.
The workplace is in Bergen, Norway.

We offer unprecedented artistic freedom and flexibility on some of the most interesting projects in architecture today. Joining Mir now is an opportunity to be part of a small and tightly-knit team that is ambitious, friendly, and eager to learn. After more than 20 years in the business, Mir is still on a mission “to boldly go where no man has gone before.” That is why we are looking for someone who is at a senior level, yet does not think they have figured out how the world works. The ideal person for this position is independent, open, friendly, curious, and ambitious.

Mirs’ focus is on architecture that enforces nature. We want to propagate architects and architecture that show to the world how we can live greener and calmer lives. Our studio is located in a small city, with limited urban offerings -yet unlimited possibilities for a magic outdoor life. Living in Bergen and working in Mir is for people who appreciate this perspective and the lifestyle that comes with it.

Benefits include company trips, flexible work hours, freedom to take holidays when wanted (or needed), free yoga classes, private health insurance, bonus arrangements, lunch made by our chef, paid overtime, and more. In addition to this, living in Norway means that you get the obligatory 5 weeks of paid holiday, a pension plan, free national healthcare, liberal parental leave and support, paid sick leave, free school and kindergarten for kids -and more. Competitive salary.

You should have a minimum of 5 years of experience in the business, and be able to work independently and in teams. A big plus if you have experience working on animations and if you are skilled at managing projects and dealing with clients. While you are your own art director here at Mir, nothing leaves the office without being seen and commented on by your colleagues. You have to be open to critique and see it as an opportunity to grow.
