Ballinger’s design culture: We are passionate about complex challenges and real-world problem-solving.

Design challenges come in all shapes and sizes, and the ones we prefer test us as design professionals. We seek out complex projects with big impact because they require us to ask tough questions, synthesize data, and push past the boundaries of existing answers into the realm of innovative solutions. Ballinger employees thrive on those challenges because our clients do, too: our work for them enables their ambitious endeavors in science and medicine, research and government, manufacturing and technology. Ballinger welcomes ambition with career development, mentorship, and leadership opportunities. Here ideas will always be more important than hierarchy because that results in buildings as transformative as the missions they serve.

Ballinger’s way of working: Our interdisciplinary teams collaborate on solutions that require a synthesis of disciplines. We believe integrating architecture, planning, interior design, and engineering is key to achieving excellence in the design of transformative environments. We were one of the first firms to merge the disciplines into a professional practice. At Ballinger, architectural and interior designers work collaboratively and creatively with planners and engineers. Our range of skills, perspectives, and experiences, directed toward a common goal, produces groundbreaking outcomes.

At Ballinger, we understand that our employees work hard but also seek a good work/life balance. We offer competitive salaries and a comprehensive benefits package. Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, resume, and portfolio through LinkedIn.

Ballinger’s policy is to ensure equal employment opportunity without discrimination or harassment based on race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability, marital status, citizenship, national origin, genetic information, or any other characteristic protected by law.
