Posted Wednesday, February 10




St. Paul


Our employee-owned and multi-disciplined team of design and engineering professionals is looking for an architect who is recognized as a leader of academic and education facility design and has a thorough understanding of market sector needs and trends to join our team.

As the Education Market Manager, you will join a team that has grown 25%+ per year in recent years and have a directly impact on the continuation of this trend by advancing our architectural services within the K-12 and collegiate markets around the Minneapolis-St Paul metro area, throughout greater Minnesota, and across the surrounding states.

With some autonomy, you will also be responsible for developing and implementing a business plan that continuously focuses on enhancing design capabilities to meet the needs of the Education Market and to increase awareness of our services with a long-term emphasis on the K-12 sector.

As a member our team, you will collaborate with a multi-disciplined group of Market Managers, Project Managers, architects, interior designers, landscape architects, and engineering professionals (civil, mechanical, electrical, and structural) to identify prospective opportunities and strategic clients, respond to RFPs, prepare for interviews and presentations, and cross-sell design and engineering services across the firm.

You will also play a vital role in cultivating and maintaining relations with technical and political leaders throughout the Minneapolis-Saint Paul metro area, the State of Minnesota, and in other prospective markets by leading outreach programs, attending networking events, and actively participating in committees and associations.

You will independently lead the activities of all projects within the Education Market and be responsible for working with Project Managers to define project scope and scheduling requirements, negotiate contracts, determine project team staffing assignments, establish and adhere to design standards, review design plans for technical quality and accuracy, and monitor expenditures and budget parameters.

On occasion, you may assume the role of Project Manager or Project Architect depending on the size or complexity of the project or the client relationship. Flexible work schedules and remote accommodations will be considered for those who have demonstrated an ability to work successfully in a remote work environment by displaying self-motivation, initiative, teamwork, and strong communication skills.

Reduced schedules will also be considered for qualified candidates seeking less than regular full-time employment. For additional information, access the posting on our website at
