  • Assist in submitting projects to various jurisdictions and keeping the review process moving
  • Collaborate with teammates – we help each other be successful in all aspects of work & life
  • Contribute to the success of the firm by completing administrative tasks (e.g. update timesheet, keep project files organized, inform team members of project status, answer phones)
To be a Successful Addition to our Team, you need to...
  • Have experience working in an architecture firm (1 year minimum, 2-4 years preferred)
  • Thrive in an ever-changing environment, juggling multiple small- to medium-sized projects
  • Be passionate about proactive communication with clients, partners and team members
  • Embrace continuous learning – there’s always an opportunity to learn something new

What We have to Offer...
  • Meaningful work. This is your opportunity to help clients realize their dream work or living space within their budget.
  • A collaborative environment. Be part of a synergistic team where we help each other become the best-version-of-ourselves.
  • Competitive salary. The right person for this position will rejoice in their compensation package.
  • Variety and valuable experience. Your work day will never be boring as you manage a wide range of projects in various stages of the design process.
  • The long view. In a world of instant gratification, we stand firm in doing what’s right for our clients, partners and employees for the long-term.
