Career Opportunities

VMA is a place that believes in the power of architecture to move and inspire us all.  

We are a firm that is guided by our collective values and we believe that a deep understanding of context – social, cultural, and physical – is essential in the creation of a responsive and thoughtful architecture. In our more than 30 years of practice, we have come to understand that a vibrant, dynamic, diverse, equitable, and well-managed studio culture is the starting point of great design work and a sustainable business.

We are a firm that encourages our employees to pursue their fundamental curiosities and individual passions, which we believe creates a culture of continual learning, personal growth and a commitment to making an impact in our communities. While collaboration is the cornerstone of everything we do, we foster each individual’s personal growth trajectory – including establishing clear growth objectives, supporting the journey to professional licensure, and encouraging participation in various firmwide activities and initiatives.

We welcome anyone who shares our love for design and who will join us in giving back to our communities, and who supports our mission to create an architecture that embodies innovation in the context of tradition.

If you share our values – no matter your experience level – we’d love to hear from you.

VMA is an equal opportunity employer that welcomes applications from all candidates regardless of race, color, religious creed, ancestry, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, or disability.
