We seek a full-time employee to join our dynamic design team at our satellite office in Winthrop, WA, in the heart of the beautiful Methow Valley. The Valley and surrounding North Cascades mountain range have long represented a mecca for climbers, hikers, and skiers. As a result, our small but thriving office in Winthrop has produced multiple award-winning vacation cabins. In addition, we often take on local, community-based projects, such as a recently-completed Montessori school in Winthrop. To learn more about the Methow Valley and all it has to offer, see this article from Sunset Magazine.

You should be eager to learn, flexible, and able to engage a variety of projects and tasks. We need someone up to the challenge of creative problem-solving in design, from initial sketch to housewarming party.


  •  Professional degree

  •  6+ years of experience, preferably in residential design

  • Proficiency in ArchiCAD or AutoCAD, SketchUp, and Adobe software suite

  • Creative thinking tempered with strong technical knowledge

  • Focus on thoughtful detailing


  • Architectural licensure or working towards completion

The ideal candidate has at least six years of experience working on custom residential architecture in a small firm, and is looking for a full-time job in a fun, collaborative environment with the chance to use and develop a broad array of skills and knowledge. We are looking for an individual who is comfortable with the residential construction process, and who is well rounded in all aspects of project delivery including design, presentation, construction documents, and construction administration.

In addition to the chance to do thoughtful, high-quality design work, our Seattle and Methow Valley offices offer engaged colleagues, a supportive office culture and attractive, inspiring workspaces. We will give you a warm welcome (and maybe pie). Compensation and benefits are DOE.

To apply, please send your resume and portfolio, including samples of your professional work, to info@pbwarchitects.com. Please let us know you are applying for the Winthrop office opening in your email.
