We're Hiring!

qkArchitecture has an immediate opening for a full time Intern Architect with 3 – 5 years of experience to become a part of a fun, dynamic and growing firm.  qkArchitecture is a fast paced, exciting boutique sized firm located in the West End of Pittsburgh with an extremely diverse and unique portfolio of projects.  It is our goal of providing, personalized, principal-directed client-centered architectural services to all of our clients. We work hard and play hard and are looking for self-motivated, hard-working and energetic candidates who have a burning passion for our profession.

The successful candidate will work as an integral part of the project team in all aspects of the project including design, product and material selections, coordination and detailing of architectural drawings just to mention a few; it’s a small firm, we all do everything and anything!

Primary responsibilities include:

Assist with conceptual design, construction documents, product and material research and basic code analysis.

Proficiency with Revit is required. Not just changing text and moving doors around; the firm Principal is adept enough for those kinds of tasks, we’re talking gettin’ it done capabilities with design and production.  Snickering at the Principal’s struggles with Revit is both expected and encouraged.

Additionally, strong proficiency with InDesign, Photoshop, rendering software and other graphics/design applications is a bonus.

Working with a small firm requires flexibility and strong communication to make it all come together, but first and foremost you must be an excellent team member.  We are an equal opportunity employer and want the right person for this position.  Qualified applicants will be considered without regard to race, religion, color, gender, age, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, partnership status, protected veteran status, disability, or any other status protected by federal, state, or local law.
