You’re several years into your career and are looking for a more challenging opportunity. You’re dedicated to delivering projects on time and budget and are looking for some more complex projects to manage. You’ve proven you can return results and want the chance to grow as a leader. At STG, we can make that happen. STG Design is looking for an Interior Designer with at least eight years’ experience to act as Technical Designer and Project Manager in our Houston office.
Why fit in when you were born to stand out?
We want people as remarkable as we are. Interior Design is tricky; smaller project size means people can’t specialize as much. We’re looking for someone who can manage a client and deliver a set of documents. Someone who understands how a building goes together and how to keep a project on budget. But we’re also looking for someone who look around the corner, who see problems coming before they arise, and who are excited about making their clients better. We want people who attack each new challenge with the knowledge that last week’s answer doesn’t fit this week’s question. People who are always seeking to learn more and then apply what they’ve learned to make those around them better.
What’s in a day?
One of our favorite things about this profession is the variety. Our routine is that there is no routine. On any given day you may (among other things):
• Help the PIC vet a scope and set a project fee.
• Own responsibility for project profitability, schedule, and budget.
• Manage the client interaction and expectations.
• Act as day-to-day client contact and have the most in-depth knowledge of all the project’s facets.
• Oversee the projection of work load and flow and then provide day-to-day direction for project staff.
• Coordinate with consultants on design and their deliverables.
• Ensure the team meets deadlines and delivers consistent high-quality documents.
• Provide design and documentation support to the team as necessary.
We know that developing expertise is important, but cross-training helps us grow, too. At STG, you’ll likely work on a variety of project types. We’ve had the chance to design a children’s museum, create Oracle’s office, reimagine a power plant, and change how Wilsonart recruits. We’ve learned that what we discover on one project type helps us innovate on another.
We’ve found successful STGers are competent in Revit, Adobe CC, Bluebeam are all musts. Sketchup, Lumion, Rhino, Dynamo would be great, too. What’s even better is if you can show us a tool we haven’t seen yet and teach us all how to be more efficient or effective.
If you’re excited, we’re excited! Please apply for the “Houston Intermediate Interiors Technical Lead / Project Manager” position. We’ll get in touch soon with next steps. Our process usually encompasses a couple rounds of interviews and an opportunity to chat informally with a group of potential peers.
