We’re Hiring: Experienced Interior Designer

The Erin Gates Design team is looking for an experienced, full time Interior Designer to join our team in our Newton Center office. This person should be a creative thinker with an established eye for design and a can-do attitude as our office is small and we all pitch in on a multitude of tasks from styling photo shoots to chiming in on product design!  We have a lot of fun projects coming up and are excited to bring another stylish, fun person into the mix to help us get it all done!

Requirements:

  • MUST have experience working in an interior design firm or for yourself as a designer. 5-8 years experience preferred, having established vendor relations in the area a big plus.
  • MUST know AutoCAD and be comfortable drafting floorplans, elevations and the like.
  • Ideally this candidate knows Studio Designer or comparable interior design focused software for invoicing, billing and tracking.
  • Car and valid license.
  • My dogs come to the office, so someone okay with dogs is also a must.
  • Incredibly organized (as I am not, so I hire people to be organized for me!)
  • Proactive work style in which you think ahead about what needs to get done.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Responsible for full project management for multiple clients at once. Must be a skilled multi-tasker who can handle many projects at once.  Almost all our projects are residential, so a pleasant and upbeat client-relations attitude is necessary.  Will visit sites and meet with clients with and without me.
  • Drawing floorplans, designing built ins and custom furniture and working with tradesmen to execute all visions.
  • Sourcing and shopping for goods, requesting samples, cuttings, etc.
  • Proposing, quoting and ordering trade and non-trade goods and making sure items are shipped/received in time and working to replace those that are damaged, etc.
  • As I said before, A+ organization — binders and files to be kept for all clients so the entire team can access at all times as we do work collaboratively!
  • Collaborate with myself and other team members on Erin gates branded product lines and media features.

The Details:

  • Monday through Friday 8:30-4:30 at our Newton Center office. Parking paid for.
  • Competitive pay (billable client rate and office rate).
  • Paid vacation/ sick days.
  • FYI, No medical benefits available at this time.

Please e-mail all resumes/ cover letters and portfolios to [email protected] with the subject INTERIOR DESIGNER POSITION.

We look forward to meeting you!

Erin
