We are always looking for talented people.
Spring Line Design Architecture + Engineering (SLD) is an interdisciplinary team of professionals who collaborate to provide elegant, constructible and functional design solutions. As a service firm, our employees are our most valuable resource. We believe the differences, skills, ingenuity, self-expression, capabilities and talents that our employees bring to their work represent a material asset of our practice. SLD nurtures our success by providing the environment and resources to facilitate employees ongoing achievements.
SLD is seeking an Intern-level Architect. This is an excellent opportunity for an individual who would like to learn from 3 experienced senior level design professionals. The successful candidate will however, still be able to take on as much responsibility as he or she is willing and capable of handling.
We will work with you to ensure you get a well-rounded internship so that you can meet all the criteria of IDP. Design work will include existing conditions documentation, schematic design, design development, specification writing, construction document preparation, construction observation, CADD, 3D Modeling and similar duties. Project types will primarily include commercial, state and municipal work. Exterior envelope work including rehabilitation is a specialty of the firm and design work involving the building shell will be part of the duties of the successful candidate.
- Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture
- AutoCAD and/or Revit proficiency
- Must be able to adapt to SLD’s standards **
- Must be able to work collaboratively with in-house structural engineers
- Must be able to fit well in our quiet and relatively introverted office
- Must be self-directed
- Must have strong writing skills
- Must be able to communicate effectively with clients, consultants, and contractors on the telephone and in-person (not just email or text)
- Must have good organizational skills
Optional but Valuable:
- Rendering experience
- Hands-on construction experience is highly valued
- Customer service skills
**This is critical. The only employees who have ever been both happy to stay at SLD and successful are those that wholeheartedly get on-board with our systems and procedures. Our philosophy is that even though it takes extra time for people to learn by heart our extensive standards, we are still much more efficient and productive in the end by having everyone know the rules and produce work the same way. If you agree with the statement that "meeting 95% of a set of instructions is good enough and it is much more efficient to be 'flexible' about the last difficult to accomplish 5%" you should not apply for this job. People who agree with that statement will almost certainly not fit in well with the culture of our office.
This position offers an excellent compensation package (fully-paid health coverage for employee, SIMPLE IRA including company match, PTO, paid winter holiday). Salary will be attractive and in line with the skills, experience and “growth potential” of the respective applicant.
Please send your resume and cover letter in COMPLETE CONFIDENCE to firstname.lastname@example.org. NO CALLS PLEASE.
SLD is committed to Equal Opportunity and Diversity. SLD pledges to cultivate a culture and atmosphere of diversity, inclusion and tolerance in the workplace.
