Ward-Young Architecture and Planning is seeking a talented, qualified Architect/ Architectural Designer with strong design and organizational skills to join our Truckee, California based studio. Our Truckee office specializes in high-end residential, commercial, and civic projects in the Lake Tahoe region. Ward-Young Architects offers a comprehensive benefit package including medical, dental, 401K, paid holidays, wellness benefit, and an annual four (4) weeks paid time off. We support continuing education and professional development of our staff, including AXP program and pursuit of licensure.
An Architectural Designer at Ward-Young is typically teamed with a Senior Architect to collaborate on a project from inception through to the completion of the project. Currently we have six Senior Architects and five Architectural Designers in our Truckee studio. We recognize the importance of a work/life balance for longevity in our careers. Typical work schedules are M-F, 8-hour days, with flexibility to enjoy the beautiful region where we live and to be involved in the vibrant mountain community. This is not normally a remote-eligible position, and we do not recommend you live further than Reno.
Truckee is nestled in the Sierra Nevada mountains of Northern California, 4 hours from the Bay Area and 40 minutes from Reno, NV. Located along Interstate 80, we are 20 minutes from Lake Tahoe. It’s the ideal environment for an outdoor enthusiast with a love for four-season life and recreation. Enjoy a scenic mountain biking or hiking trail in spring, relax by a mountain lake in summer, hit one of many ski slopes in winter, or go camping in the brisk fall air. You can bike or run around Donner Lake on your lunch hour or after work. In Truckee, you live in the great outdoors!
