Our ideal candidate has the following qualities:

  • Is interested in being an integral part of a small practice.
  • Is excited to be involved in the entire development process, from originating and developing design concepts during schematic design, to preparing design documentation during permitting, and remaining involved through the construction process.

  • Is proficient in Adobe Creative Suite and MS Office, including Word, Excel and Outlook.
