You were the type of kid who glued their Legos together.  You dream of details and thrive on the nitty-gritty.  Contractors like you so much that you haven’t paid for a lunch in years.  You crush deadlines, are as thorough as the day is long, and you’re such a great multi-tasker that you’re reading this while tuning up your motorcycle.

You want to bridge the gap between architecture and construction, and reap the profits of your efforts, and work with some of the most creative, fun and progressive people in our industry, and eat chocolate-covered potato chips.  Guess what?  We have the job for you.

JLG Architects is seeking a Construction Services Job Captain. Not just any Construction Services Job Captain, mind you.

A JLG Construction Services Job Captain:

- Get’s it built. You will be the JLG guide and the client liaison from pre-bid to close-out using JLG standard policy, procedures and tools. You will support the design team in producing documents which are the pride of the upper Midwest.
- Communicates, communicates, communicates. You work with everyone. Everyone. You need to protect and promote the JLG brand while gaining confidence of stakeholders and team members while also keeping the contractors happy.

A few more attributes of a future JLG-er:

- You need construction experience. You need at least 3 years of experience working on commercial construction related projects  
- You are the embodiment of customer and personnel service. Since you interact with literally everyone, you have the ability to project a professional company image throughout everything you do.
- You know building codes and ADA requirements. You have prior experience interpreting design includes these facets.
- You’ve got your mind on the money. You have a clear understanding and working knowledge of project budgets and cost estimates.

About JLG:
On a 20-below January day in 1989, Gary Johnson and Lonnie Laffen opened the doors to JLG Architects with little more than a stack of bumwad and a burning desire to truly make a difference through great design (and probably a space heater, because brr).

Thirty plus years later, we are one of the country’s 50 Most Admired Companies (MSN Money), 50 Best Places to Work (Inc. Magazine), and Architecture Giants (Building Design+Construction). That two-person firm may have grown to 150 professionals in 11 offices, but our driving force remains the same.

Every day at JLG is a new day for creating, inspiring and solving challenges. Everyone – from our Intern Designers to our Construction Administrator to our Marketing staff – is the heart and brains of the process, and we work closely together because we are inspired by one another. We live and work with passion; we never stop at “good enough” when it comes to our own expertise and aptitude, and are innovative and resilient in seeking out new ways to actively participate in the experience of being a JLGer.

In fact, our JLGers are so important that we became a 100% Employee-Owned ESOP in 2014 because the best place to grow your career is at a business of your own design. So, if you are someone with fire in your belly and fun up your sleeve, you’re someone we want to meet.
Beyond a love for award-winning architecture and chocolate-covered potato chips (not required), here is what makes a JLGer: 

DESIGN | We raise the bar. 
We elevate outcomes and expectations through thoughtful, creative, and inspirational solutions.  

RELATIONSHIPS | We build connections. 
We nurture collaborative, supportive, authentic, and respectful relationships through clear and honest communication and adaptive decision-making. 

COMMUNITY | We make a difference. 
We find new ways to actively engage in and uplift all of our communities — from our professional network to our local neighborhood to our family of JLGers. 

STEWARDSHIP | We take good care. 
We make responsible decisions regarding our clients’, firm’s, and planet's resources, treating them like they're our own. 

INTEGRITY | We do what we say. 
We do right by our clients, our communities, and ourselves. 

But wait, there’s more - here are a few other reasons why it’s good to be a JLGer: 

- Agile workforce program 
- Summer and flexible hours 
- JLGfit program 
- Company-wide events and in-house social gatherings 

- 100%-paid Medical Insurance 
- Dental, Vision and Supplemental Insurance; Health Savings Account; Life, Short-term and Long-term Disability Insurance 
- Paid time off; paid holidays; paid bereavement; paid parental leave
- Flexible Spending Accounts (Health/Daycare FLEX) 

- Formal peer mentoring program; Company-sponsored training and continuing education 
- Paid Licensure and NCARB fees
- Paid Architectural Registration Exams
- Endless growth opportunities 
- For new graduates, a 3-year development program that cuts the time to licensure in half 

- Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) 
- 401(k) retirement plan with employer match contribution 
- Licensure bonus program 
- Discretionary bonuses
