About You

We don’t know you yet, but we imagine that you have a broad set of interests and skills, and that you wouldn’t be happy focusing on just one of them. You have been working in a marketing or business-related field (preferably in the AEC industry, but open to other industry backgrounds) for at least 1-2 years, possess a strong independent, organized, and data-minded skillset and are looking for a company to get excited about.

At your core, you are a creative problem solver who knows how to apply their wide-ranging knowledge and skills to new and unfamiliar challenges with a small team. Your experiences have equipped you with a strong sense of initiative and troubleshooting, and you understand how to independently organize and implement research data for scalable marketing initiatives. You are passionate about connecting people in architecture and creative fields, so you enjoy ideating and experimenting on the fly, but you also strive to systematize our workflows whenever appropriate. Overall, you are someone who is dedicated to producing good work, and you understand that supporting your team and knowing when to ask for help are both key to achieving that goal. 

About Us

SITU is an unconventional architecture practice using design, research, and fabrication for creative and social impact. The company was founded in 2005, in Brooklyn, New York, by four friends studying architecture at the Cooper Union. We’ve shaped our practice out of the multi-disciplinary style of our education, and have grown through working with clients who value a progressive approach to problem-solving. We now employ a staff of 35+ people.

Our process is client-specific, adaptive and driven by a diversity of deep knowledge, untethered from any stylistic or formal agenda. This allows us to work out-of-bounds, using new tools of architecture to generate unique outcomes.

Our practice is composed of three divisions—Studio, Research, and Fabrication—that work collaboratively while providing individual
services. This keeps prototyping, research and development, and hands-on craft elemental to our creative process.
