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

The Project Managers at Blitz work on multiple projects and are responsible for directing and managing design teams through all project phases, providing decision-making and design leadership. They are involved in client interactions and consultant coordination, and are responsible for overseeing production and maintaining project budgets, work plans, internal budgets, and schedules. A small portion of the role is devoted to new business development (primarily client interviews). Project Managers are responsible for keeping clients once they are won through the careful building of client relationships. Project managers report directly to the Partners. 

We are looking for talented Project Managers who want to shape the future of commercial design. Our ideal candidate has stellar technical skills, plays well with others, manages deadlines like a boss, and rocks their job hard. 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 of technical design leaders 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).
  • Nine paid holiday days.

  • Stocked kitchen and fresh coffee daily!

Qualifications

  • 10+ years of experience in architectural practice with management experience in all phases of projects through post-occupancy.
  • Licensed Architect preferred but not required.  
  • Experience in commercial interiors required. Experience with core and shell / adaptive reuse / hospitality a very strong plus. 
  • Revit proficiency is required.  
  • Demonstrated ability to communicate and coordinate with project team members, clients, consultants, and contractors. 
  • Expert knowledge of local code requirements and ability to efficiently interface with agencies having jurisdiction. 
  • Demonstrated ability to manage project teams to produce presentation materials for client and agency presentations. 
  • Oversee & direct project production team members and schedule multiple projects simultaneously.
  • Ability to balance multiple tasks and projects and maintain progress in several areas simultaneously. 
  • Experience with InFocus Project Management software a plus.
  • 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.
