We need a Designer.
For Environments.

Hovercraft is looking for a conceptual designer for our Portland office with a bachelors or masters in Architecture. Your work must be intelligent, insightful and impactful. From concept to completion, you must be able articulate a concise driving idea and dial it down to the final crafted detail, all while obsessing the user experience through the entire process. Your must be knowledgable of classic & contemporary design, and driven to create progressive work for retail, fashion product and hospitality clients.

We let our work do the talking – Hovercraft projects are pinned up on others inspiration boards. Our team takes equal pride in individual ownership of projects and collaborative efforts. We take pride in being our biggest critics. You will have ample creative freedom and hands-on experience working with people at every level in Hovercraft’s Portland & Denver offices. You will also have a damn good time, occasionally travel and work with the occasional hangover. If you’re looking to play it safe, this studio is not for you. If you’re not out to be the best at what you do, you’re not the person for us.

What To Expect

This is a full-time salary-based position. We offer a health, dental and vision, 401k retirement plan (plus Hovercraft contribution), Hovercraft winter break, PTO and a fun work environment with the opportunity to bounce between our offices in Portland and Denver. Our work is results-driven and moves at a fast pace – if we do a project, we do it to the max. You will occasionally work long days and be on-site for project installs. We don’t believe in friends on a pow day, early mornings after a long night, or sunny afternoons without a beer in hand.

Preferred Education, Experience & Interests

  • Bachelors/Masters in Architecture or Interior Design.
  • Strong portfolio with at least 2 years design experience in architecture, retail or multi-disciplinary studio.
  • Proficient in the use of SketchUp, AutoCAD, Rendering Software, Adobe Creative Suite, and hand sketching. Hand Rendering skills are a plus.
