About the Position:

We are seeking a driven and enthusiastic draftsperson with at least 3 years of experience to join our full-time team.

Knowledge of SketchUp (with V-Ray) and Adobe Creative Suite programs is a plus.

This position requires the following:

  • 3+ years of drafting experience, assembling full construction sets
  • A degree in the field of architecture is preferred
  • The ability to prepare a full construction set and details of all scales
  • Excellence in AutoCAD 2D and drafting standards
  • A solid understanding of the stages of design, documentation, and permitting
  • Construction site experience is desired
  • Strong organizational, interpersonal, and communication skills are imperative

JMA has great things to offer you, such as:

  • A work environment that encourages learning and growth
  • A furry friend or two in the office (we hope you like dogs!)
  • Snacks and beverages for those mid-afternoon pick-me-ups 
  • A fair and competitive salary
  • Health Plan
  • 401k

To apply, please submit a cover letter that outlines your background and passions. Give us a sense of who you are! Also, please include a one-page resume and a few samples of work demonstrating that you possess the required abilities listed above.
