Swift Lee Office (SLO) is a small firm doing projects with a big impact. Founded in 2000, we are committed to the vision we started with: to run a multidisciplinary design studio combining architectural practice with hands-on making, fabrication, prototyping, and experimentation. We run an open studio where hierarchy matters less than our willingness to collaborate, and share ideas. Our extensive portfolio includes innovative residential, educational, civic, commercial, and industrial projects. Above all, we seek out projects that strengthen the social fabric of communities, and we’re committed to being good stewards of the environment. 

We have an immediate opening for a project architect with strong experience in educational and multi-family projects and working with public agencies. The ideal candidate is self-motivated, an analytical thinker and problem solver, effective at working in a team and alone, a strong communicator, and an enthusiastic champion of good design.
