Walker Macy is seeking an enthusiastic project manager and landscape architect for our Portland, OR office. In this role, you will work directly with clients, participate in public outreach, provide leadership in the design, management, and technical development of our projects, and coordinate with architects and engineers.
Walker Macy is a nationally recognized design firm known for outstanding public-facing projects. We lead landscape architecture, urban design, and planning projects throughout the Western United States. While our focus is on public projects – including parks, waterfronts, and campuses – we have a broad range of work that includes site design for civic and cultural buildings, interpretive centers, and mixed-use development. We have a collaborative and team-oriented professional culture with a commitment to contextual design, innovation, sustainability, and client satisfaction.
This position requires a professional degree in landscape architecture (BLA or MLA), well-rounded design and technical abilities and excellent “people” skills. Candidates should enjoy project design at all stages, have proven success managing medium to large urban open space projects, leading consultant teams, and coordinating with clients and public agencies. Our ideal candidates will be self-motivated and flexible, with strong written and verbal communication skills, willingness to take initiative and an interest in mentoring and working as part of a team. Required professional experience includes developing and directing design studies, creating graphic presentations, working in AutoCAD or Revit, writing specifications, and managing the team’s work (scope, fee, schedule, and staffing). In depth knowledge of Revit and/or planting design would also be beneficial.
Walker Macy is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
