Andrew Mann Architecture is seeking a Junior Designer with one to three years of work experience and exposure to custom residential design.  A well-rounded, enthusiastic, motivated person who would like to participate in a collaborative, creative work environment will thrive in this position. The well-respected firm specializes in the design of high-end custom residential architecture.  The office’s work is rooted in the tradition of the Bay Area style and is characterized by a crispness of detail, a richness of space and a sophisticated use of natural light.

Employment at Andrew Mann Architecture offers the candidate the opportunity to contribute to the design process, follow the development of projects from conception through completion and be involved in the craft of architecture and building.  Mentorship plays an important role in ethos of the firm; for the right person, this position has the potential to grow along with the growth of the firm.

The main responsibilities for the position shall include participation in the development of single family residential projects from the schematic design phase through construction administration. This will require working with the project team on the development of design ideas, communication with clients, assistance with the coordination of consultants, research of local codes, production of construction documents, assistance with the guidance of projects through the approvals process and involvement in the resolution of issues that arise during construction.  The firm looks to the strengths each team member brings to the table in order to finalize the position description, but generalists who can manage, design, and communicate thrive in this office.

Qualifications: Candidate must be a creative problem-solver, be able to work independently and to balance the responsibilities of multiple projects at the same time.  Applicant should have strong design skills and excellent written and verbal communication skills. Experience should include the exposure to the design, documentation and construction administration of wood-frame construction residential buildings, plus some understanding of the California Building Code.  The office works in Revit; familiarity with it or other BIM software is ideal.

Candidate’s background should include at least one year of work experience and a master’s degree or bachelor’s degree of architecture.  The firm provides competitive compensation and a generous employee benefits program including health insurance and a 401(k) retirement plan.  During this evolving time, the candidate should be able to work from home as needed or desired but also available to visit jobsites throughout the Bay Area on occasion.  A plan to balance aspects of remote working with benefits of face to face collaboration in a return to our office is in development to be implemented at a future date.
