Architect | Akron, OH | Full Time

Job Description

Are you a Designer seeking purpose, challenge, and talented colleagues? Would you like to grow your career designing a diversity of building projects of increasing scale and complexity?  CESO is a architectural, civil engineering and surveying firm with large firm project opportunities: shopping centers, restaurants, large hotels, convenience stores and urgent care centers among others. We develop leaders and empower staff to use their gifts to impact the world through service – to our clients, to our coworkers, and to our communities. We subscribe to the mission “finding purpose through serving others,” so if this speaks to you, let’s connect!

As a Designer, you will plan, design and deliver architectural construction documents for diverse commercial, retail and hospitality projects.  We establish long-term, meaningful relationships with clients focused on building multi-unit national footprints and integrate with their teams to help them design, manage and develop their brand. Our  Designers assist on 2D and 3D drawings and Computer-Aided Design (CAD) work.  You will gain experience and knowledge in all facets of design and work with a talented team of Senior Designers and Project Managers in our architectural department.

We develop and inspire our Designers through training and coaching on the job.  At CESO, we believe that work should be more rewarding than just a paycheck.  In addition to a comprehensive benefit and compensation program, our work environments are warm inviting spaces to collaborate with your teammates. CESO is a principle-centered organization, thinking and acting in alignment with strong values of service, integrity and authenticity.  We create memories and friendship through our employee and service events including lunches, birthday celebrations, outings, and community service opportunities.

Our Designers will have an Associate degree in CAD Design or a Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture (or related field) from an accredited school and have applied their 1-5 years of experience in the design of commercial and retail buildings.  Architectural registration is not required, but preferred. We also welcome candidates who have equivalent work experience in the architectural field and have a proven record of successfully designing projects.  If you’re proficient at Revit, AutoCAD, and Microsoft Office, you have a passion for learning new things and solving complex problems, then this is for you.

If you agree, we look forward to hearing from  you! 

CESO is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
