We are looking for a nimble, team oriented individual with a passion for residential outdoor design. The role will encompass everything from designing tasteful, modern outdoor rooms, to charming courtyards, versatile backyard spaces, and some of the coolest pools and fire pit features in the South Bay. If you are an individual that loves the thought of seeing something brought to life quickly; if you light up at the thought of designing and realizing local, modern projects on a smaller scale; and if you crave an environment of fast paced learning, then you should apply. But, if these things don’t appeal to you, or if you do not meet the requirements listed below, we ask that you spare us the application.

  • Associates Degree, or Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture & Design or Landscape Architecture

  • Experience with CAD, 3D modeling, and Adobe Photoshop
  • Passion for construction detailing
  • Ability to design tasteful and relevant options in multiple iterations
  • Strong understanding of graphic communication

ADDITIONAL QUALIFICATIONS: These are optional but advantageous to possess.

  • Illustrative and sketching abilities
  • Academic or professional experience in horticulture
  • Experience with municipal planning code requirements


  •  Pay: $12-20/hour
  • Design high end outdoor spaces for custom homes in the beach cities.
  • Learn, design, and build 3D models of outdoor design concepts.
  • Work with the Project Manager to take a project from concept design, to design development, to permitting to construction
