Johnson Oaklief Architecture & Planning is delighted to announce an opening for a full-time position at our office in the Belltown neighborhood of downtown Seattle.

JOAP was originally founded by principal Stevan Johnson in 1987. We have been an urban architectural consulting firm focusing on the design of multifamily residential and mixed-use buildings, national register historic and locally landmarked structures, primary care clinics, institutional facilities, community facilities, commercial spaces, and master planning for the reuse of urban and industrial sites since the firm’s inception.

The expertise and success of the firm rests on providing responsible stewardship of our client’s vision and needs, achieved through best architectural design practices and leadership in inherent sustainability. Our main goal is to enliven the urban environment, and provide designs that enhance the welfare and enjoyment of the larger community through their interactions with the built environment.

We seek a talented architect with at least five years of experience in the field. It would be ideal that the candidate has essential ArchiCAD/BIM experience and excellent organizational skills. Since we are a small, agile team, our best candidates are going to be those who can adapt to changing needs and enjoy wearing different hats as they experience the full range of architectural services and practice.

The position begins with a three-month opportunity and an expectation to continue as an integral part of the team after the introductory period. We anticipate on-boarding of the final candidate by November.

For 34 years here at Johnson Oaklief, we have enjoyed competitive salaries, benefits and the collaboration of a great team of experienced individuals of diverse backgrounds. Our office is centrally located in the Belltown neighborhood. We’re a bike-friendly office and enjoy a relaxed work environment.

Please submit your resume via email and include a cover letter stating why you believe this position is in step with your professional growth, experience and capability.
