Our Team

The Identity Team at SHoP Architects is a closely collaborative group that works across disciplinary boundaries to help define and communicate the strategies and design work of the studio. Our mandate is both internal and external: to creatively support SHoP's dynamic culture, and to share its work and values in all public channels. Our team's responsibilities include but are not limited to business development, press and publishing, photography and archiving, web and social media, internal and external special event and exhibition planning, and the design and implementation of data-intensive operational platforms to facilitate SHoP's workflow at scale. We are responsible equally for helping to shape the studio's mission, and for directly maintaining the systems and materials we create to document and express it.


The Position

The development of story ideas, the preparation of materials for publication, and the management of external relationships are all integral components of the broader work of SHoP's Identity Team. The responsibilities of the Press Manager also include: coordination with design teams in the development of visual and written assets, maintenance of SHoP's master project calendar, creation of concepts for and assembly of press kits, representing SHoP at public forums and events, management of online platforms (social and web), and strategic pursuit of additional communications-related projects and capabilities as needed in coordination with Identity Team and studio-wide goals.

In addition to the qualifications listed below, and regardless of previous experience, the ideal candidate should have a deep familiarity with and passion for architecture, writing, and writing about architecture.


Professional Qualifications

  • Three or more years comparable experience in an allied field
  • Demonstrably excellent writing skills
  • Visual literacy
  • Fluency with Adobe Creative Suite
  • Ability to work after hours and under tight deadlines

Salary is commensurate with experience. 

To apply, please send your CV and a selection of any relevant work to Elsie Dedecker, (include "Press Manager_NAME" as the subject). All files should be .pdf under 5MB.

This is not an architectural design position and will not lead to employment in that capacity.
