CM Architects is a full-service bay area architecture firm looking for your help to grow and service our expanding client and project list.  We are currently focused on additions and alterations in existing, non-conforming structures mostly in San Francisco, as well as work on single family homes and tenant improvement projects.  We are a non-traditional office located in downtown Oakland that is small but growing.  We are looking for someone interested in getting involved in everything we do – from conceptual design through construction administration to the helping with the nuts and bolts of building, growing, and shaping our company.  You will have a key role in designing, meeting with clients, servicing building permits, coordinating technical aspects of a project, and drafting construction documents.  You will learn how to perform an energy analysis to local regulations, develop structural calculations, coordinate with civil and geotechnical engineers, and become an expert at navigating building code.   We love to explore design puzzles and each day here presents stimulating new challenges that you will help solve.

The ideal person for this role has had a few years of experience in the architectural or construction industry, however we’ve found that less experienced self-starters with a hunger to learn and excel in the profession can quickly adapt to what we need.

Desired skills include:

  • Proficiency in AutoCAD or familiarity with similar CAD based programs
  • BArch or MArch is great, or a developed background in the construction industry
  • Good communication skills
  • Good organizational skills
  • Willingness to ask for help when you need it
