We are actively recruiting for a talented Architect with 8-10+ years of experience. As a Project Architect with WC Ralston Architects, you will become a key member of this distinctive residential architecture firm based in Northern Virginia, just outside of Washington, DC.
Are you a skilled team leader who can contribute to all aspects of residential architecture, helping deepen its reputation for exceptional design?
At WCRA, our designs set trends in residential architecture. We're tinkerers, collaborators, and innovators. We strive for being “Distinctive” in everything we do. Our people feel challenged every day. There's always something new. There's pride of authorship. Our people are hands-on, responsive, and detail-oriented providing exclusive, high-end services to our discerning clientele. We thrive on mentorship, encouragement, support, and growth. We're driven by basic values and an amazing culture. We're looking for people who are powered by passion and eager to do the best work of their lives in a highly autonomous, yet collaborative environment.
You want to be around "go-getters" who, like you, are striving to grow professionally and personally. You want your voice heard and to make an impact. You value high-quality work and attention to detail. You are energetic, charismatic, and empathetic. You are a discoverer, always looking for ways to navigate unfamiliar territory. You prefer collaboration and creativity over rigid structure and micro-management.
You'll be responsible for guiding a team of dynamic architects, directing projects from early stage conceptual design through construction. You’ll collaborate with experienced leaders and act as a mentor to others, nurturing those on your team to grow and push themselves to improve.
If you take joy in amazing clients throughout the design process, we have the platform to support you. You’ll foster strong relationships with existing clients and form lasting connections with new ones.
You have eight to ten years of experience in residential design.
You have demonstrated success managing projects from design through construction and fostering relationships with homeowners and real estate executives.
Your character is a tremendous asset and you have a technical pedigree to match. You probably are licensed in one or more states and have a professional degree in in Architecture from an accredited university.
The tools of an architect are extremely familiar to you; both hand-drawing skills and a variety of software (Revit, AutoCAD, Adobe Creative Suite, and Microsoft Office).
We want to hear from you!
