👋

Hello again! We are on the hunt for someone who has a huge mental capacity for coordination, a keen sense of design and a passion for interior architectural experiences. Work experience in the event industry would be xtremely helpful. 

If you’d like to join our small architecture firm in beautiful Fort Langley, BC, but be part of a project that has locations all across North America, you’re probably a good candidate. This certain someone is going to work on one project and one project only, but it’s sooooo complex and intriguing we can guarantee you will never be bored. You’ll be part of a massive team so perfect communication skills are required. 

Looking for an Architect

1 October 2019 start date


OFFICE

  1. We’re located in a little town outside Vancouver, full of artist shops and other funny creatives. Our physical space contributes to the streetscape in a very architectural-centric way. We sometimes go crazy with installations (a large part of your future job!). 

  2. Physically here, virtually everywhere.  You’ll be required to spend most of the time in the office with us, but virtually connected with a team of 40+ people across North America who all have separate tasks that they do extremely well.  Flying in airplanes will also happen. 

  3. We aren't big on stress. So, while we will expect you to work efficiently and get things done, we focus on open communication and getting things done right the first go around. That said, you must love to work hard. 

  4. Benefits? We have them!

  5. We’re fun! Every week we try to do lunch together (typically burritos) and every few months we do a fun adventure as a team. Nothing boring here.


POSITION

  1. As you read in the first paragraph, we need someone who has event planning and coordination in the past. We’ve been doing it for the past three years, so if you have a passion for it but not a lot of experience, we can also work around that. 

  2. Attention to detail and organizational skills are a must and a half. Our role is master coordinator. 

  3. Creativity is KEY. As head architect, we’ll be bringing together the works of other creatives, such as graphic designers, marketing departments, illustrators, builders, manufacturers, and chocolatiers. Intrigued? 

  4. Your knowledge of Revit is a necessity as you will be using it all times. Sketchup is also a requirement (but who doesn’t know SketchUp?)

  5. We’re restating #2, but you need to nail down the details. You don't need to race through work and get things done half-a$$ed (we figured that one out ourselves). We need tasks done methodically and extremely intentionally. Can you justify your every move? Perfect. 

  6. This role is evolving but will eventually become standardized, so we’d like to document the process and eventually put together some sort of protocol. This will come later, but if you have a passion for systems and procedures all the better!

  7. will be at least 40/ week, Monday to Friday; at our Fort Langley studio and at our client’s North Vancouver office. The back-and-forth will vary throughout the year; something we can discuss further at your interview. 

  8. Timing wise we are looking to bring our new colleague on board for the 1st of October, but we will spend the necessary time to find the best fit.


APPLY


In addition to being a detailed person, you must follow our systems and processes. You’ll also be developing some of your own. Just to prove that you are detail oriented and can follow procedures when you apply for this position in the subject line of the email you must include "x marks the spot” in the subject line. This is to sort out the people who blanket send their resume to anyone and everyone, from the folks (that's you) who are truly interested in this position.

You are detailed and organized. Check. Creative? Check. Like Burritos. Double Check! Great, now get creative and show us why you're a must add to our team. Whether it’s through a portfolio, an email description or whatever format you want to share your awesomeness with us, we can't wait to see it.

Emails can be sent directly to Victoria at  ve@xarchitecture.com

We can't wait to meet you!!!

Sincerely,

X Team
