Architectural Staff (Entry Level) – Charlotte, NC

Cone Architecture is seeking a full time Entry Level Architectural Staff to join our fast-paced and fun loving team in our Charlotte office, fondly known as “Cone Carolina”. We are an established and growing firm of 17 architects and designers across two offices – located in Seattle, WA and Charlotte, NC. While we are geographically located in two different places, we are a tight-knit group who leans into cross-country collaboration. Our Charlotte office was founded in 2021 with a team of two – we are looking to expand by adding a new teammate who is excited both about the grassroots nature of growing a new office, and the opportunity to work with great folks on both coasts.

Cone was founded in 2015 with the goal of making a collective impact on the future of housing. Our expertise is in residential design of all scales, and our body of work contains projects in the single family, multifamily, and commercial sectors. We pride ourselves on a collaborative practice – one in which ideas are shared freely, where concepts and design solutions are strengthened by the collective group.

If all of this appeals to you – you might just be a good fit for our team!

Responsibilities of an Entry Level Architectural Staff member include:

  • Development of Revit models through collaboration with project team
  • Assistance with production and coordination of all permit set sheets
  • Collaboration on design with project team
  • Assisting with creation of graphics, diagrams, and renderings for client and design review presentations
  • Preparation for and participation in team, client, and consultant meetings
  • Ability and desire to learn building and zoning code through independent research and under the mentorship of Project Captain and Project Manager.

A successful Entry Level Architectural Staff member will possess:

  • Minimum 1 year professional experience in an architectural office. Experience with multifamily projects a plus, but not a requirement.
  • Proficiency in Revit and Adobe Creative Suite with basic knowledge of Auto CAD and Sketchup.
  • Strong rendering and graphic skills.
  • Solid self-organization and time management abilities with a strong sense of accountability for and ownership of work.
