Cheung Showman Architects is a small (currently 5-person) architecture firm founded by Esther Cheung and George Showman in 2014.  We are looking to hire a full-time team member with 3 to 6 years' work experience to join our Dumbo office, starting immediately, as Project Manager.

Our Project Managers are the core of our team -- they also cover the role of 'junior/intermediate architect'.  You will be assuming a project management and design role on residential and commercial projects in New York City.  You will likely be taking on three or more projects at a time, at various scales, speeds, and phases of development.  For each project you will report directly to the partner leading that project.  As our projects are currently small- to mid-size, our Project Managers typically do everything for each project they manage: coordinate with clients, consultants, and contractors, and execute all phases of architectural services from survey and schematics, through details, to construction administration.  Project Managers also have a significant role in the design of each project.  As we move towards larger and more complex projects, and as the firm grows, we will expect you to manage other staff to assist you.

A short list of qualities a successful candidate should have:

  1. Be self-motivated and ready to take on significant responsibility.
  2. Be organized and rigorous.
  3. Have good experience in all (or almost all) phases of architectural work.
  4. Have excellent digital skills, starting with fluency in Rhino and AutoCAD.
  5. Have a well-developed aesthetic sense, and an appetite for great design.
  6. Be honest, adaptable, and have an open mind to new ideas.
  7. Have an accredited B.Arch. or M.Arch degree.

We are committed to providing a creative and supportive environment for working and learning.  We expose our staff to all aspects of the profession, including plenty of construction site time.  We offer reasonable hours and fair compensation.  We also value staff input to shape our way of working and the ongoing development of our firm.
