You will:

  • Serve as a go-to subject matter expert within the company for all things architecture

  • You have a strong desire to help architects on their path to licensure
  • You are skilled in communicating difficult concepts and theories related to architecture
  • You're excited to dive deep into reference materials and resources to determine the information that is the most pertinent to the exam, and how to present it
  • You're willing to be accountable to our customers’ success, you encourage and respect your teammates, and you're careful and thoughtful with your work. You also appreciate and value the power of great design.
