Prentiss + Balance + Wickline Architects seeks a full-time employee to join our dynamic design team. The position will be based out of our satellite architectural studio in Winthrop, Washington, in the heart of the beautiful Methow Valley.
The Methow 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, Washington 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 www.sunset.com/travel/northwest/methow-valley-washington.
You should be eager to learn, flexible, and able to pick up on a variety of ongoing project tasks. We need someone up to the challenge of creative problem-solving in project management as well as in design.
2-3+ years of experience, preferably in residential design
Strong understanding of AutoCAD, SketchUp (or other modeling software), and Adobe software suite
Creative thinking tempered with strong technical knowledge
Focus on thoughtful detailing
Experience working in ArchiCAD
Architectural licensure or working towards completion
The ideal candidate has two to three or more 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 a broad array of existing 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.
Our Seattle and Methow Valley offices offer engaged - dare we say fun - colleagues and attractive, inspiring workspaces in addition to a chance to do thoughtful, high-quality design work. We will give you a warm welcome and, perhaps, pie. Compensation and benefits are DOE but competitive.
