JLG ARCHITECTS IS AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY EMPLOYER.

Apply Now for Interior Designer

You are more than an interior designer; you are the artist of environments, the builder of moods, and the champion of comfort. You dream in fabric swatches and color palettes, you know the secret knock to get the best furniture, and you won’t rest until you install a living wall.
 
You want to lead, 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 an Interior Designer. Not just any Interior Designer, mind you. A JLG Interior Designer:

- Is the champion of interiors. A JLG Interior Designer advances design discourse and contributes to the elevation of JLG’s design brand.
- Is a leader in workplace solutions. Our Interior Designer will set the stage for all current and future trends in office and public environments.
- Is the one-stop-shop for in-house quality control. Our Interior Designer will oversee, lead, mentor, and advise our design teams, and set the tone for all details and other standards.

A few more attributes of a future JLG-er:

- You need to be experienced. You must hold a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited interior design (CIDA) or architecture (NAAB program), and have a minimum of five years post-graduate experience.
- You are certified. You hold a professional certification or registration in interior design, NCIDQ preferred.
- You know what it means to be a leader. Your “can-do” outlook and willingness to do what it takes garners the respect and confidence of your peers and project team. You stick to your budgets and schedules, period. You communicate. “Organized” is your middle name.  

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 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 120 professionals in 12 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 inspire and innovate through creative solutions that elevate expectations and outcomes.

RELATIONSHIPS | We build connections.
We nurture collaborative, supportive, authentic, 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 take full responsibility for our clients’, firm’s, and Earth’s resources to make smart decisions and mitigate risks for today and tomorrow.

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:

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