Moss is a full service architecture and urban design studio located in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago. Our work is diverse by design and allows us to explore the best design solutions across varied project types including residential, commercial, hospitality, urban planning, and custom furniture. Our culture and projects reflect our values and we view life balance as essential. We are an atypical studio wherein there is not a designated track trajectory – our passionate group of architects and designers have flexible hours and are free to explore how their interests outside of architecture can be incorporated into the studio, such as writing, graphic design, furniture and industrial design, construction, etc. 

We are seeking a highly-motivated Project Architect/Designer with 8-10 years of experience in residential (detailing interiors/exteriors), commercial and mixed-use projects to join our growing studio. The candidate should have experience in all facets of project design: programming, schematic design, coordination with clients and consultants, CD’s, permitting, bidding / pricing and CA. Bonus points for construction management experience since we build some of our own projects through our subsidiary, Moss Build.

In addition to strong design and technical expertise, our ideal candidate is a creative problem solver and someone who is self-motivated that will take ownership of projects and can integrate with our office environment. The ability to draw by hand, strong presentation, client engagement, communication and organizational skills are essential. We work on a diverse range of projects best suited for someone with varied interests. Our innovative and independent spirit allows for design freedom and flexibility. We also supply endless amounts of sublime coffee!

Interested candidates should submit their resume, portfolio and CD samples in PDF format or link to No phone calls, please.
