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   

We’re looking first for a colleague who is a good fit with the team: analytical and intuitive, cerebral and fun, equal parts accomplished storyteller and devoted research geek. The primary focus within the team will be business development, but you will quickly see the ways in which all of our projects overlap. Your primary role will be to work as part of the Identity Team to support the creation of proposals and presentations—graphic, written, and verbal—from conceptualization to final execution. An ongoing project will be the coordination of complete visual materials for every project. Day-to-day tasks can range from intense deadline-driven production to maintenance of the systems and materials we create to support our work. You'll need to be able to identify creative opportunities and quickly determine the optimal means to implement them in a fast-paced, fluid work environment.

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

  • Two or more years experience in an identical or similar role
  • Familiarity with assembly and production of several types of common BD proposals
  • Demonstrably excellent writing skills and visual literacy
  • Fluency with Adobe Creative Suite
  • Ability to work after hours and under tight deadlines

To apply, please send your CV and a selection of any relevant work to (include "Business Development Associate_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.
