Design Blitz – Project Architect, Los Angeles

At Blitz we believe that architecture 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. After all, it’s not about money, notoriety, or fashion: it’s about doing something that has value. And when you get that right, everything else follows.

About Blitz

Blitz is a full service architecture and interior design firm specializing in workplace, commercial, retail, and hospitality design. We provide the complete range of architectural services required to take a project from programming through construction. We are an agile and passionate team who abide by the doctrine of compelling design and technical rigor.

More than just an architecture firm, we are a team of multi-faceted designers that build upon one another’s strengths to provide total design solutions for our clients. Our team is comprised of talented architects, interior designers, graphic designers, and communication specialists whose roles interweave to provide novel and thoughtful solutions.

About the Position & The Benefits of Working Here

Project Architects at Blitz lead projects from concept design through construction. We are looking for a confident and experienced architect with an outstanding track record of leading projects in the built environment, demonstrating professionalism and excellence in client management and all project phases. The ideal candidate is a talented technical designer with an extensive background in interiors design. A background in project management is a strong plus.

At Blitz, we uphold the highest standards of project delivery and professionalism, and the Project Architect will lead by example in all aspects of projects’ production processes. This is a full-time position with benefits. Compensation is based on ability and experience.

We are looking to expand our team of technical design leaders to support this work. True Blitzers have stellar technical skills, play well with others, manage deadlines like a boss, and rock their job hard. We love the power of a great idea and are looking for “builders” not joiners.
