Design Department Architecture is seeking an architect or architectural intern to join our team.

We are a Portland firm offering full architectural and design services. Formed in 2008, the firm remains small and focused on compelling projects of all scales. Our energetic and fast-paced environment offers an exciting growth opportunity for motivated individuals. This position offers exposure to all aspects of project design and implementation, from schematic design through construction, and provides the opportunity to work closely with the Principal architect and other members of our team on a wide range of projects.

You’ll love working with our team if you possess:

  • Self-motivation and drive to succeed as an architect and designer

  • Self-discipline and independence

  • A knack for building relationships with architecture clients, vendors, consultants and contractors

  • Strong design, analytical, verbal and written communication skills


  • Degree in Architecture

  • 1-5 years experience in an architecture office

  • Highly proficient in Autocad

  • Experience with Sketchup

  • Proficient in Adobe Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign) and rendering software

  • Revit knowledge preferred but not required

We are not a traditional architecture office and we hope this resonates with anyone joining our team. Applicants seeking independent working arrangements, flexible schedules, and less than full time schedules are encouraged to apply.
