At Blitz we believe that design should tell a story — an interesting and compelling story. What are we about? Where do we stand? What are our passions and what makes us happy? These are legitimate questions and we should seek answers to them throughout the design process.
Blitz is an award winning design firm specializing in commercial architecture and workplace design. We provide the complete range of architectural services required to take a project from programming through construction. Our team of architects and interior and graphic designers work as one to create thoughtful design solutions with technical rigor.
About the Opportunity
We are currently seeking an Interior Designer with a minimum of three years experience working at architecture or commercial interior design firms, with a preferred focus on workplace design. The ideal team member is a self-starter, fast learner, and looks for opportunities to improve systems, structures, and themselves. Revit proficiency and communication/ visualization skills are a must, FF+E knowledge and specification experience preferred. This position requires a confident designer with an ability to communicate design ideas graphically, assemble finish palettes, and coordinate and collaborate with furniture vendors, as well as interface with clients, contractors, and consultants.
In addition to workplace interiors, our commercial interiors work includes bio-tech, higher education, international hospitality, and developer-led adaptive re-use. We are looking to expand our team of technical design leaders to support this work and challenge our awesome clients to reach for excellent design. We love the power of a great idea and are looking for “builders” not joiners.
Full-time employees receive four weeks PTO (including the week between Christmas and New Years when the office is closed).
Nine paid holiday days.
Flexible working hours with four nine-hour days and a half day on Friday.
Full medical, dental, and vision coverage is provided.

Salary increase upon licensure (successfully passed licensing exams are reimbursed too).
Stocked kitchen and fresh coffee daily!
The Blitz team works hard but we make sure we take time to have fun and keep learning. In addition to continuing education opportunities and project management training, Blitz supports internal design and technical presentations through learning lunches, after hours mixers, and a mentoring program that is available to junior staff. We support our industry through a variety of events, and enjoy the company of our competitors (who we also consider our friends). Our Summer / Winter parties are awesome.
