Jensen Yorba Wall is seeking an emerging professional architect to help grow our firm into the future. Located in Juneau, we focus on designing high-quality projects which improve communities throughout maritime Alaska, from Ketchikan to Dutch Harbor. Our unique location allows us to work on a wide variety of institutional, commercial, and residential projects including schools, civic centers, tourist facilities, airports, hospitals, and many more.
Juneau, the capital of Alaska, is a town of about 32,000 located between the mountains and fjords of the Inside Passage. Located in the middle of the Tongass—the world’s largest old-growth temperate rain forest—the area offers an incredible wealth of outdoor activities. This truly unique place isn’t for everyone, but the people who love it here couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.
Our firm is currently 9 people including 3 registered architects, a registered interior designer and other professional design and support staff. We pride ourselves on providing a positive work environment, including healthy work/life balance and family-friendly policies.
