We design urban parks, transportation corridors, campus settings, waterfronts and mixed-use centers that enhance our communities. This is the place where great ideas and rewarding careers happen in a highly collaborative atmosphere. Our experienced inter-disciplinary team specializes in urban public space planning and design; park design; bicycle, pedestrian, and multiuse trails; outdoor sports and athletic facilities; transit oriented development; and landscape assessment and rehabilitation. We connect the people, places, and resources that take a project from concept to reality. Our friendly fast-paced studio environment is business casual and client-centered.

We are seeking someone with excellent design, graphic, computer, writing, and technical skills, who is self-motivated and passionate about design. The ideal candidate should have strong time management, critical thinking, and organizational skills, and have the ability to work with others, as well as independently. Experience with AutoCAD, Microsoft Office, Rhino or Sketch-up, and Adobe programs is essential.
