Designer and Design Manager

Founded in 1975 by Don Barker, Ron Rinker and Russell Seacat, our firm has evolved and matured steadily over its decades-long history. What began as a collaboration of three architects who were passionate about making "great good places" has grown into a richly integrated design practice with projects in over 200 communities throughout the United States. While our goals and objectives continue to evolve, we remain true to our original mission: "To design joyful, functional architecture that meets the needs of the people it serves and to enhance, enrich and contribute to the quality of life of the community." To learn more about Barker Rinker Seacat Architecture, please visit

With offices in Colorado and Texas, we are looking for experienced, creative individuals to join our growing Grapevine office.

We are hiring for a Designer and Design Manager:

A Designer/Design Manager at BRS is someone whose primary focus is the in-house game. This person's job is to manage the process for the product. A Designer/Design Manager (D/DM) is passionate about the design documentation for the project. Creating what is needed to describe the building to the Client and the Contractor -- design, products, coordinated systems, etc. -- is paramount to their role.

What are our job requirements? We recognize that talent comes in many forms and with diverse backgrounds and experience. The only requirement we have is that Designers and Design Managers must be proficient in Revit with commercial projects.


>> Competitive Salary and Vacation
>> Dogs Allowed: Yes, you can bring your canine companion to work! If you don't have one, you can always pretend by borrowing someone else's.
>> Health, Dental & Disability: We've got you covered no matter what the emergency, so you can come to work with peace of mind.
>> 401k: A well managed portfolio and a contribution matching plan... well... to match.
>> PTO & Holidays: We wouldn't want you to be overworked now, would we? Everyone needs a little R&R.
>> Monthly Art Shows: How better to appreciate art than with beer, wine and snacks?

If you want to take the next step in your design career with a company that values you and your work, please send a cover letter and resume. You may also include links to online portfolios or other examples of your work, or you may include your portfolio in your email.

We look forward to hearing from you. Grow with our firm.
