Careers at Science Museum Oklahoma

Whether you're a high school student or a seasoned professional, we have a place for you!
Science Museum Oklahoma offers a warm, friendly working environment that values creativity and curiosity. We also offer great benefits for both full-time and part-time staff!

Open positions are listed below with links to our simple, online application:


Full-time staff positions don't come available often - for good reason. Our staff are part of a collaborative team that receives competitive pay and are eligible for a generous leave and benefits package including health, dental, vision, FSA, core short-term and long-term disability, voluntary life and AD&D, and 403(B) with employer match for eligible employees. Join a culture that values education, creativity, diversity - and the importance of incorporating play into every day.


Development Director - We're looking for the right person to tell the museum's story and help us build on an existing foundation of individual, corporate and foundation donors. You'll have the opportunity to work with a passionate President/CEO and dedicated board to cultivate major donors, craft direct mail campaigns and pursue grant opportunities. You'll be supported by an institution that sees fund development not as a single department but as an institutional priority requiring collaboration among all departments. That's why you'll often find funding meetings include representatives from education, communications, finance and even IT.

Please review the qualifications carefully - this is not an entry level position. We're looking for someone with the experience to lead and the passion for our mission that matches our own. Please submit resume and writing samples.

Temporary to Full-Time Custodial Team Member - It's not every museum that constantly has cleanliness mentioned in their great reviews - but WE do thanks to the high standards set by our custodial team! Parents appreciate all our custodians do to keep their families safe and healthy. We appreciate our custodians for the care they give to our guests, building and exhibits! All of that appreciation is reflected in a competitive wage, friendly coworkers and the best working conditions in town. You'll begin working through our temporary staffing agency but excellent candidates may find themselves invited to be part of Science Museum Oklahoma's full-time permanent staff!


Part-time staff come from all walks of life and often have a lot going on! That's why competitive pay and a schedule you can rely on are some of the key reasons our staff love working at SMO. Add paid time off and working with incredibly fun people - that's why many of our part-time staff have been with us for years!

Program team members keep the energy flowing throughout the museum while they explore, learn, and play alongside our guests. We're looking for creative, fun people who love science and want to share that passion with others. If you're a little bit fearless and a whole lot of amazing then you belong at SMO!
