We are a small office of highly collaborative team members that supports flexibility, creativity, and leadership. We are here because we all believe in what we’re doing and are excited by the prospect of helping our members make a difference in our city. All of us are involved in strategic planning and thinking about the future of the organization, and we value new ideas and perspectives that improve our work.
We actively seek applicants with a range of backgrounds, viewpoints and work styles. One of our organizational goals is to support industry-wide culture change, so that architecture and the allied professions actively attract and retain more people of color, women, and non-binary people. Through all our programs and processes, we are working to value and promote diversity. Our entire team has received training using the Intercultural Development Inventory, and we have gone through the JUST-certification process. We provide equal employment opportunities to all individuals.
Compensation and Benefits
AIA Seattle is committed to progressive and equitable compensation standards, including full-time employment as the primary basis of our workforce, and pay scale equity. We completed our JUST certification in 2019, and commissioned a bi-annual compensation study to benchmark against other area non-profits. We provide generous benefits, including fully paid health and disability insurance, 401k match of 4%, bonuses, professional development opportunities, and generous public holidays including the week between Christmas and New Year off. We respect work-life balance, and allow flexible work schedules and work from home as appropriate to the position. Most of us work from home on Mondays, when our office is closed to the public.
