At Blitz we believe that design should tell a story — an interesting and compelling story. What are we about? Where do we stand? What are our passions and what makes us happy? These are legitimate questions and we should seek answers to them throughout the design process.
Blitz is an award winning design firm specializing in commercial architecture and workplace design. We provide the complete range of architectural services required to take a project from programming through construction. Our team of architects and interior and graphic designers work as one to create thoughtful design solutions with technical rigor.
About the Opportunity
At Blitz, Senior Interior Designers lead design projects, inspire their talented teammates, and challenge our awesome clients to reach for excellent design. The ideal candidate will bring Blitz’s core design values to each project, combining creative vision with disciplined project delivery. This position demands a quick-thinking design leader conversant in space planning and furniture and material specification, with stellar technical skills and dogged persistence. Senior Interior Designers nurture their clients, play well with contractors and consultants, manage deadlines like a boss, and rock their job hard. At Blitz, we uphold the highest standards of project delivery and professionalism, and the Senior Interior Designer will lead by example.
This is a full-time position with benefits. Compensation is based on ability and experience. In addition to workplace interiors, our commercial interiors work includes bio-tech, higher education, international hospitality, and developer-led adaptive re-use. We are looking to expand our team of technical design leaders to support this work. We love the power of a great idea and are looking for “builders” not joiners.

The Blitz team works hard but we make sure we take time to have fun and keep learning. In addition to continuing education opportunities and project management training, Blitz supports internal design and technical presentations through learning lunches, after hours mixers, and a mentoring program that is available to junior staff. We support our industry through a variety of events, and enjoy the company of our competitors (who we also consider our friends). Our Summer / Winter parties are awesome.
