As an Architectural Designer/Architect with Cottage, you’ll be the primary architectural expert managing ADU projects in the pipeline through Schematic Design, Bid Documents, Design Development, and Permitting. In this role, you’ll own the architectural design of the project, relationship with the homeowner, and hitting of key project dates according to Cottage project timelines. While the role is fully remote, applicants should expect meetings and communications to occur on Pacific Time as Cottage HQ and clients are located in the Bay Area, California.
We specialize in combining technology with ADU expertise to offer custom residential design at a fraction of the cost and timeline of traditional architecture. As such, the ideal candidate will be enthusiastic to adopt Cottage’s new approach to the architectural design process and deliverables. Our in-house Design Systems team develops technology that will supercharge your day-to-day work with data, technical design standards, and team communications.
You’ll gain valuable client-facing experience, learning to coach homeowners through the design process and effectively representing the Cottage brand. You’ll be part of a growing team of talented, forward-looking architects and designers eager to disrupt historical practices of architecture and construction. Compensation is tied to project scope with payments paid with each project milestone (SD, DD, Permit Set).
