Are you interested in joining a collaborative, community-based architectural practice that uses imagination and creativity on challenging projects?

Do you want to work in a firm small enough to participate in all aspects of design and management, large enough to take on significant civic and institutional work, and committed to the professional growth of each employee?  Are you seeking to grow professionally while being recognized for your contributions?

Embedded in Oakland since 1999, SKA has achieved healthy and steady growth as a result of the talent, commitment, intelligence, integrity, and solid professional skills of its staff. Today, with a staff of 14, SKA is one of the Bay Area’s leading design firms with an excellent reputation for the projects that are integral to our communities — from visitor centers, community centers, and fire stations; to educational, workplace and other civic buildings.

We offer a signing bonus and/or will cover moving costs for the right candidate.  Our salaries are competitive and allow for Bay Area housing costs.


  • Solid design-oriented perspective, skills and goals. 
  • Professional Degree in Architecture
  • 3-12 years of professional experience.
  • Proficient in Revit
  • Well-rounded licensed or unlicensed Architect
  • Proficient in digital technology (Adobe Creative Suite, Sketch up, 3D visualization) and management tools (MS Office, Google Apps)
  • Cooperative and collaborative attitude.
  • Seeking regular full time employment.
  • Fully vaccinated.

Our employees thrive in a collaborative environment and enjoy working together.  We are located in Oakland’s old-town adjacent to the 12th Street BART station.    We offer health insurance, 401(K), profit sharing, paid vacation, sick leave, holidays and financial/time assistance for successful licensing.  The Bay Area has one of the nation’s highest vaccination rates.   All of our employees are fully vaccinated.  Out of an abundance of care, we continue to work at home and will eventually transition to a hybrid system of working at home and the office.

To apply, please email your resume, portfolio examples, and a cover letter with Job Captain - Architect in the subject line, to  US citizens or green card holders only please.  Qualified resumes with cover letter will receive notification of receipt.
