It’s been a fulfilling and fast-paced year for Jones Pierce Studios. We’re working hard on many new residential and commercial projects across the Atlanta metro and beyond. Now, we’re looking for a new architect to join our Commercial Studio team and hope that you’ll help us spread the word.
If you (or someone you know) is a new or more seasoned architect looking to make a change, we’d love to talk.
Here’s the experience we’ll get the most excited about in a candidate:
Restaurant or commercial kitchen experience (or similar environment — e.g., lab)
Construction document and engineering coordination
Understanding of building code and zoning (and how to research)
Knowledge of SketchUp 3D modeling platform (or similar tool)
Multi-family and adaptive reuse experience is a bonus
Years of experience isn’t as important as other qualifiers
Motivation, drive and self-direction are important, too — and these are the things we will look for in a well-rounded candidate:
You’re bored working for a big (or ho-hum) firm and yearn for a meaningful change
Problem-solving and developing creative solutions are two things you’re known for
Unique projects and applications keep you engaged (what we’re all about at Jones Pierce)
Being self-motivated comes easy, and you know how to manage your schedule and commitments
Interacting with clients and partners and working out in the field energize you
People think of you as a leader or someone who’s always up to learn something new
You find yourself dreaming about how you can transform an abandoned relic into something beautiful and new that delights a community (and meets city guidelines, of course)
You can easily answer this question: Where do you want to be in five years in your architecture career?
