A Project Coordinator position is a good fit for architectural designers with some experience under their belts. To succeed as a Project Coordinator at Paragon Architecture, you’ll need to be comfortable modeling, developing project documents, and addressing redlines from your Project Managers. When submittals, documentation, and correspondence comes flying in from multiple directions for multiple projects, we’re relying on you to be the air traffic controller who is cool, calm, and collected – thriving in a fast-paced environment, but adaptable and willing to adjust as conditions change. As a vital support component to the team, you can expect to remain actively engaged in the design phase, help lead the generation of construction documents, and take part in the construction administration process. When you’re attending client and consultant meetings, we also count on you to be a class act representative in professional settings. Quality project execution relies on an attitude of teamwork, accountability, creativity, and organization at every phase and in every detail. If you have a passion for managing the small stuff while engaged in the big picture, we’d love to hear from you.
WHO WE ARE
Paragon Architecture is an architecture and interior design firm built on the foundation of FAMILY, RELATIONSHIPS, COMMUNITY, INTEGRITY, and SERVICE. We strive to make a positive impact in our communities on and off the clock. With 12+ years since Paragon got our start, we’ve built a reputation for having a service inclination, generating repeat clients, delivering effective design solutions, and cultivating one of the best companies and teams to work for in the region.
HOW WE WORK
We value the premise that each project is unique and driven by client goals, design opportunities, and unique challenges. Design teams work in a lively and interactive environment with access to modern technology and software programs. Creative design solutions start and end with the project teams, and you aren’t just asked to carry out the vision of a principal who is looming over your shoulder – that sounds awful. We rely on design charettes in our process to promote participation at all levels of the firm while bringing multiple ideas and perspectives to the table.
WHERE WE CALL HOME
We have offices in Springfield, Joplin, and St. Louis, Missouri, with our headquarters in downtown Springfield, MO. Our offices are purposely not in the suburban office park, but in the vibrant walkable downtown environments – we believe it’s another place where we can impact our communities for the better. Paragon Architecture has continued to grow since its inception in 2010, and our reach continues to increase year after year. Our three locations along the I-44 corridor affords us the opportunity to provide architectural services to an array of clients throughout the entire state of Missouri and into neighboring states.
ABOUT OUR BENEFITS
Paragon Architecture places emphasis on professional growth and supports learning through continuing education opportunities. Health, dental, vision and supplemental benefits are offered for eligible full-time employees as well as a 401k plan, paid holidays, and a generous PTO policy. We can also relate to needing some time to reset (after the holidays, especially), so our offices are closed from Christmas to New Year’s Day. Paragon has a distinctive sabbatical program, as well as health and wellness challenges and incentives that are unique to Paragon. Informal learning opportunities are combined with social time at weekly virtual gatherings, monthly celebrations, and seasonal events that provide time for folks to get to know each other better outside of their work on projects.
