JOIN OUR TEAM

Chamberlin Architects is seeking employees who are creative, inquisitive, and talented to join our fourteen-person employee-owned firm. We have openings at our Grand Junction, CO and Rapid City, SD offices.

We live where others vacation! Our office is located in the heart of Grand Junction which is growing with a vibrant downtown in western Colorado that is a comfortable mix of urban and suburban elements. Grand Junction is surrounded by world class mountain biking, climbing, and skiing. Don’t live in urbanized Colorado – skip the crowds and traffic of Denver and give yourself easy access to hiking and camping among our mountain lakes or fishing along our rivers!

We work to make a meaningful impact where great architecture is scarce.  When graced with beautiful, natural surroundings, we try to make our buildings fit in and highlight the amazing landscape rather than dominate it.  As part of our team, you will have opportunities to design everything from small remodels to new multi-building campuses for all sorts of project types including Hospitality, Healthcare, Education (K-12 and higher ed), Government (local, state and federal), Single and Multi-Family, Cultural and Institutional (non-profits).

For over 40 years our staff has designed exceptional buildings rooted in these spectacular environments. We aim to raise the bar for what is built outside of major cities.  Through an open studio environment, our offices foster design critiques, technical innovation, collaboration, community involvement, and fun!
