ACRE Designs is seeking an architectural designer to join our team at our Mountain View, CA office. The ideal candidate will have an b.Arch/M.Arch. or equivalent, strong design skills, competency in sustainable design, and a deep interest in construction. Individuals with 2-8 years of professional experience are encouraged to apply, although others will also be considered.

We are a growing startup, backed by Y-Combinator, designing and building net-zero energy smart homes that take a new approach to Prefab. The work is heavy in SD/DD as the CD sets are mostly complete, and siting/ civil coordination skills are especially useful. Our goal is to create exceptionally high quality designs which can be built rapidly at an affordable price. Acre homes are exceeding Title-24 energy requirements by 30-50%. The majority of projects are currently in Sonoma as we help to rebuild after the fires, but we have projects from Santa Barbara to Jackson Hole.

Responsibilities may include: site visits; preparation of architectural documents at all design levels from concept to construction documents and administration; preparation of presentation documents and graphics;  materials research; consultant coordination; client interaction.  

Applicants must have the ability to work legally in the United States now or in the very near future.  We regret that we cannot consider foreign nationals who require visa sponsorship.  

Salary will be commensurate with experience. The ideal candidate will be enthusiastic, easy to work with, hard working, and interested in working in a small-office environment with significant growth opportunity. As a small office, applicants should expect a more informal working environment and exposure to a wide range of tasks. 

Interested individuals should submit a cv and portfolio in pdf form by email to: Due to the number of applicants, we request you refrain from calling the office. We will make every effort to reply to each applicant individually.
