Electronics specialist

The Other Tales, one of the top Escape Room companies in New Jersey, is looking for an expert in microelectronics to work on exciting escape room projects. We build our story-based escape games ourselves, from concept to production, and we are always looking for a new way to make our games fun, exciting and memorable. We are looking for a person to both work on our new projects and to help provide support of our currently running games.

We pay for the work on a per-project basis. The rates are commensurate with the experience and are open for negotiations.

Typical projects include:

  • Turning a proof-of-concept prototype into a production-ready electronics for the props (review and improve the schematics, design PCBs, assemble completed electronic parts)
  • Troubleshooting of existing electronic props and systems - being able to come to our location (Hawthorne, NJ), identify the problem and quickly fix it so the game is operational again.
  • Doing research to find the optimal way of implementing the necessary prop functionality.


  • Love microelectronics, understand it, and ready to tinker with it
  • Have experience designing and building electronic devices - from breadboard prototype to a working product
  • Know how to design PCBs and how to prepare fabrication order
  • Have experience working with Arduino, ESP and other popular microcontrollers
  • Have experience working with various sensors and peripheral devices
  • Are ready to learn new things, to experiment with new components and technologies and to create unusual, crazy and impossible devices!

Even better if you:

  • Know how to program microcontrollers
  • Have experience with MQTT and/or NodeRED (and/or other IoT technologies)
  • Love puzzles, games and escape rooms!

How to apply
