Title: Project Architect / Designer


BLDGWORKS is looking for a designer/architect with 3-5 years of experience to join our growing team. 

We are looking for someone that can design, produce and take responsibility for the coordination of projects. This person is highly self-motivated and enjoys working in an entrepreneurial environment. 

If you are interested in learning more about the overall building delivery process from start to finish, this is the role for you.

Our company, established in 2015, is a vertically integrated development, design, build firm working on both self-development projects and client-based work. Technology, collaboration, and integration are major drivers of our process, and our team works across disciplines to execute our designs.

This position is dedicated to our design arm, but you will be working in various stages of the process outside of the traditional architecture scope, including development feasibility and preconstruction services. We are also deploying new methods of construction, including panelization and mass timber systems. 

In 3 months you will:

  • Work closely with our Chief Design Officer on several single-family and mixed-use projects across the US in the early phases of design.

  • Become familiar with our vertically integrated process and begin collaborating with our internal construction and development teams

  • Develop drawing sets and presentations for client meetings and planning board presentations

  • Learning the ins-and-outs of our panelization process

  • Work closely with our consultants to facilitate project realization

In 6 months you will:

  • Finalize preliminary drawing sets and carry them through construction documents

  • Hand projects off to our construction team for pricing and delivery

  • Start development feasibility analysis on new projects

  • Start construction administration

In 12 months you will:

  • Help punch list and sign off on the first set of projects

  • Work directly with our development and construction arms on various stages of project development

  • Help define project scope for our construction arm and subcontractors

  • Lead design production on new BLDGWORKS projects


  • An architecture degree (B.Arch or M.Arch, or non-professional architecture focused degree)

  • Strong knowledge of Revit, Rhino, Adobe Suite, and Microsoft Suite/Google Suite Products

  • Minimum 3 years of experience working in an architecture firm

  • Travel within the Northeast region of the US

  • Potential further domestic travel


  • Experience in mass timber design or construction
  • Construction experience
  • Experience in single-family, multi-family, and mixed-use design

  • Architecture license

  • Experience with Grasshopper and/or Dynamo

  • Experience in construction administration and/or construction management

  • Experience in real estate development or working with real estate developers on projects

  • Experience seeing a project through from concept through construction administration

  • Advanced knowledge of Revit

  • Working knowledge of Navisworks, BIM 360/Construction Cloud, or other fabrication software

  • Experience in digital fabrication


  • Competitive salary

  • Equity ownership in BLDGWORKS. We are a growing startup and are not shy about our aspirations. We hope to attract like-minded and ambitious people who want to be rewarded for that.
