At Blitz we believe that design should tell a story — an interesting and compelling story. What are we about? Where do we stand? What are our passions and what makes us happy? These are legitimate questions and we should seek answers to them throughout the design process.

About Blitz

Blitz is an award winning design firm specializing in commercial architecture and workplace design. We provide the complete range of architectural services required to take a project from programming through construction. Our team of architects and interior and graphic designers work as one to create thoughtful design solutions with technical rigor.

About the Opportunity

We are currently seeking a Designer with a minimum of 5-7 years experience working at architecture or commercial interior design firms, with a preferred focus on workplace design. Designers at Blitz are responsible for preparing architectural construction documents under direct supervision of senior staff. They help coordinate every aspect of the design process with clients, consultants, and contractors. Designers are directly involved in fostering client relationships and in project design at all levels. Our studio is collaborative and non-hierarchical, and every member of the design team contributes to the project design from programming to concept to construction administration.

This is a full-time position with benefits. Compensation is based on ability and experience. In addition to workplace interiors, our commercial interiors work includes bio-tech, higher education, international hospitality, and developer-led adaptive re-use. We are looking to expand our team to support this work. We love the power of a great idea and are looking for “builders” not joiners.

Benefits

  • Full-time employees receive four weeks PTO (including the week between Christmas and New Years when the office is closed). 
  • 401(k) with generous matching. 
  • Flexible working hours with four nine-hour days and a half-day on Friday.  
  • Full medical, dental, and vision coverage is provided.
  • Nine paid holidays.
  • Strong continuing education support on both a firm-wide and an individual basis.
  • Salary increase upon licensure (successfully passed licensing exams are reimbursed too).
  • Stocked kitchen and fresh coffee daily.

Qualifications

  • 5-7 years experience in architecture or interior design. 
  • Revit proficiency is required. 
  • Accredited degree in architecture or interior design.
  • Excellent technical and design skills and the ability to work under the direction of senior staff to progress and develop concepts and Construction Documents. 
  • Excellent verbal, written, and graphic communication skills, inclusive of 3D rendering skills.
  • Experience in architectural interiors is required; experience with core and shell / adaptive reuse / hospitality a plus. Proficient in construction documentation and detailing.
  • Experience in FF&E specifications.
  • Working knowledge of the California Building Code, and experience interfacing with local agencies having jurisdiction.
  • Ability to work within a team environment and coordinate with the design team, clients, consultants, and contractors. 
  • Candidates must have unrestricted authorization to work in the United States.

Other Stuff

The Blitz team works hard but we make sure we take time to have fun and keep learning. In addition to continuing education opportunities and project management training, Blitz supports internal design and technical presentations through learning lunches, after hours mixers, and a mentoring program that is available to junior staff. We support our industry through a variety of events, and enjoy the company of our competitors (who we also consider our friends). Our Summer / Winter parties are awesome.
