In response to the unprecedented crisis of COVID-19, AIA is creating a “Staff Sharing” job type that allows firms short of staff and not able to hire to connect with firms that may be short of work but wanting to retain staff.
Prentiss + Balance + Wickline Architects seeks a full-time employee to join our dynamic design team based out of our satellite office in Winthrop, WA, in the heart of the beautiful Methow Valley. The Valley and surrounding North Cascades mountain range have long represented a mecca for climbers, hikers, and skiers. As a result, our small but thriving office in Winthrop has produced multiple award-winning vacation cabins. In addition, we often take on local, community-based projects, such as a recently-completed Montessori school in Winthrop. To learn more about the Methow Valley and all it has to offer, see this article from Sunset Magazine.
You should be eager to learn, flexible, and able to engage a variety of projects and tasks. We need someone up to the challenge of creative problem-solving in design, from initial sketch to housewarming party.
The ideal candidate has at least eight years of experience working on custom residential architecture in a small firm, and is looking for a full-time job in a fun, collaborative environment with the chance to use and develop a broad array of skills and knowledge. We are looking for an individual who is comfortable with the residential construction process, and who is well rounded in all aspects of project delivery including design, presentation, construction documents, and construction administration.
In addition to the chance to do thoughtful, high-quality design work, our Seattle and Methow Valley offices offer engaged colleagues, a supportive office culture and attractive, inspiring workspaces. We will give you a warm welcome (and maybe pie). Compensation and benefits are DOE.
8+ years of experience, preferably in residential design
Proficiency in ArchiCAD or AutoCAD, SketchUp, and Adobe software suite
Creative thinking tempered with strong technical knowledge
Focus on thoughtful detailing
Architectural licensure or working towards completion
