Join Our Talented, Award-Winning Team!


Telford Brown Studio Architecture provides thoughtful, modern architectural and interior design for homes, wineries and sacred spaces. Our projects are featured in media such as Luxe, Oregon Home, and Portrait of Portland magazines and we are a frequent winner of “Best of Houzz” awards.


Led by Portland Architect Hope Telford and based in Portland, Oregon, we’re a boutique firm with a flexible, collaborative team that creates simple, beautiful and practical spaces that emphasize natural materials, comfort, usability and energy efficiency.


We do NOT believe in pigeon holes (not even for pigeons). Everyone wears multiple hats and our team structure organically responds to the need of the moment. That’s by design to encourage flexibility and openness that leads to inspiration and creative solutions for our clients.


We believe that a rested team is a productive, creative team, so work-life balance is a high priority. We also offer a great benefits package!


We currently have job openings that we’ve love to fill with talented, energetic professionals who want to join our great team. Are you a good fit? If so, contact us right now!


Current Openings


ARCHITECTURAL STAFF (Non-licensed & Full-time)

Our ideal candidate has a professional degree in Architecture and at least 3-5 years of experience, HOWEVER we are willing to consider candidates with less experience, so if the rest of the job description fits you, please apply. You also should be organized, self-motivated and exceptional at working well with others, and able to independently perform typical tasks for projects of moderate size and complexity, such as:


  • Guided assistance with project drawing sets.
  • Analyses of design planning and occupancy studies and limited design layouts.
  • Assistance with preparation of project specifications.
  • Writing reports for municipalities, when needed.
  • Reviewing completed reports, plans, estimates and calculations.


Equally important, we are looking for someone who truly enjoys working with others, and is a creative problem solver. We are a flexible bunch who love working together here at the office, where creative inspiration and problem-solving happens over the tops of our desks, and we all pitch in whenever and wherever we’re needed. We also value time to put our heads down and really get to work, and whereas we’ve always been a workplace that values a healthy work-life balance, we also offer some flexibility as well. So, if you’re someone who arrives at work excited to hang with your teammates and eager for whatever the new day will bring; if you thrive on rapidly changing priorities and can’t wait to be part of the daily inspiration our hive mind cooks up, we’d like to meet you.


Salary is competitive, based on experience and qualifications.
