Architect (Automotive) – Posted January 28, 2022

At SSOE, we create forward-thinking designs that provide architecturally driven solutions for industrial clients. We capture the essence of our client’s culture and spaces in a way that inspires, energizes, and brings their brand to life. We view the facilities we design as the messengers for what our client’s brand stands for, whether it’s a manufacturing space, office building, R&D facility, or employee training area.

SSOE Group’s 2020 acquisition of Stevens & Wilkinson—an award-winning architecture, engineering, and interior design firm—has elevated both firms by combining excellence in architecture, engineering, and interior design with a national platform. A Top 15 Engineering / Architecture Firm for more than a decade (BD+C) and Top 5 Automotive Plant Design Firm for the past two years (ENR), we’ve designed 12 automotive plants in the last 20 years and were the proud recipient of seven design awards in 2021 alone.

This career opportunity is part of a continued strategic investment that SSOE is making to strengthen and grow the architecturally based design practice to enhance our architectural brand, portfolio, and resources. Our vision is to design and build the future for our clients, colleagues, and communities, and we’re looking for architectural professionals who share this vision and are motivated by being a part of something bigger than themselves.
