Licensed Architect, Salem, Oregon: Full Time Position
Why join a firm in Salem? A home here costs about 30% less and rentals about 40% less than in Portland or Eugene. Traffic is a tiny irritant, not a hair pulling event. The cost of living here is lower than much of Oregon for a city our size. We have historic buildings, theaters, beautiful parks and excellent restaurants. The “big” cities are about an hour away, as are the Oregon coast, ski areas, mountain lakes, and rivers to raft.
As in any architecture firm, there are lots of design projects, client meetings, deadlines, computer work-the stuff of a busy and award-winning office. Joining our close-knit team might just be where you can combine your love of architecture and your desire for an environment where all team members are encouraged to balance their work and home life and happiness with their love for thoughtful and meaningful employment.
Nathan Good Architects is a four-person design studio in downtown Salem. Imagination, durability and pragmatic solutions are characteristic of our designs, which highlight our leadership in environmentally responsible approaches with minimal environmental impact. Our office specializes in custom homes, serves the wine industry, and is responsible for a variety of interesting and innovative building types. Custom residential design is a large part of our business, including beautiful and innovative homes on the coast, in the mountains and along rivers. Working closely with clients and enjoying doing so is paramount for our firm.
Our ideal candidate would:
Have 3-5 years of experience in the field of architecture or engineering
Be a graduate of an accredited architecture program (Bachelor’s or Master’s degree)
Be technically proficient in standard office and CAD software (we use ArchiCAD, which would be a plus but not mandatory for the position)
Enjoy working directly with clients
Manage and prioritize time, tasks and professional relationships effectively
Want a long-term position and growth with our design team
Be flexible in both job tasks and in a close work environment
