Architectural Technologist

We are looking for a self-motivated and talented intermediate level technologist to join our well-established design practice.

You’re a true generalist with experience in industrial, retail, and commercial projects, perhaps with experience in Design Build projects as well! You are driven and motivated to complete your work efficiently under tight project deadlines with a positive attitude. You love working in a collaborative team to utilize creative problem solving and critical thinking skills. You’re a clear and well-versed communicator and are capable of balancing multiple competing priorities on several projects. You have good knowledge of building codes, and competence in building envelope detailing. Above all, you have a personal passion for architectural design and building construction detailing.

At Omicron, you’ll experience a fantastic learning environment that is supportive and not adversary. We are all operating under the same goals and principles, utilizing our Integrated Project Delivery model to find efficiencies and reduce redundancies and frustrations.
