Work Here

Do you have a love for the smell of pine and a need to have sawdust under your nails? Do you have a quirkiness about you that leads away from a cubicle life? If so, you might be one of us and not even know it.  We're currently looking for just the right person to fill these positions...


Architect/Architectural Designer—Farmington, NY

We're in need of an experienced architectural professional who is looking to be part of a Design/Build team that strives to understand and meet the needs of our client while thinking outside of the proverbial timber frame saltbox. You'll be heavily involved in the entire design process, from the early stages of face-to-face with clients and development of Schematic Designs, to providing detailed Construction Drawings. This role works collaboratively in a dynamic team environment with design and construction co-workers. 

Our ideal candidate has a minimum of 5 years of architectural experience with great design aptitude whether residential or otherwise, a hunger to learn, and charm to win over clients, builders, PE's, and co-workers alike. Architectural licensure is fantastic, but not a must. The ability to wield our tool of choice, Revit, with ease, create with SketchUp, and focus on high-performance design/construction, is what we're hankering for. 

If this sounds like you (and bonus points if you like to bike (mountain or dirt) and enjoy open office environments), send us a cover letter and your resume and be sure to use Architect/Architectural Designer in the subject line.
