BLRB is looking for a creative, collaborative, communicative, and detail-oriented job captain/architect to join its Oregon team in either our Bend or Portland offices. This position is open to licensed architects, but licensure is not required. We are a premier architecture firm with offices in Tacoma and Spokane, Washington, as well as Portland and Bend, Oregon, endeavoring for a diverse and inclusive organization. Our innovative and client-focused team supports success throughout the lifespan of all our projects, from feasibility through construction. We enjoy supporting our communities and enriching people’s lives through our design solutions, and we have great clients and fun projects that include schools, non-profits, civic buildings, apartments, and more.
The person in this role will support one of our commercial teams, with a primary focus on multi-family housing. However, opportunities to cross train and experience other project types exist. Duties include, but are not limited to, participation in the development of the project design, production support, consultant coordination, QA/QC on project drawing sets, code reviews, and agency coordination. BLRB has a robust professional development program including on-the-job mentoring, quarterly check-ins with the office Principal, opportunities to learn new skills, and support of ARE studying and testing.
Currently, this position is a mix of remote and in-office as needed/desired. Our firm is currently working on its permanent remote/flexible work guidelines. We would like any new employee to spend some extended time in the office through various levels of training, which may include travel to other office locations as current safety guidelines allow (time and travel costs paid).

Excellent collaboration, with a proven ability to work successfully on teams.
Excellent organization and time-management.
Balance of design creativity and technical proficiency.
Mastery of BIM with a working knowledge of Revit specifically.
