The Candidate: We are looking to hire a Business Office Manager to join us in our rapid and exciting growth! The Business Office Manager is responsible for directing the financial affairs of the company using generally-accepted accounting principles, including accounting, business office, purchasing, billing and reimbursement, credit and collections, and other financial matters as directed by the owner. We are looking for a progressive-thinking, motivated individual to join our creative team and bring added value to our solid portfolio of projects. Raw Design values diversity and we encourage minorities and women to apply.
The Firm: Raw Design Studio is a growing architecture firm in Salt Lake City. Founded in 2012, Raw’s mission is to bring quality innovative design to every project. We believe that successful businesses are founded on solid relationships and we strive to create, foster, and maintain strong relationships through honest and fair business practices. Raw Design has built a solid portfolio of constructed projects as well as developed strong relationships with clients, contractors, and consultants. We’ve recently grown to 6 people with a goal of adding 2 more by the end of 2020. Raw Design is not a corporate office but we take our work seriously. We care about our projects as much as we care about our dogs, and pastries.
The Work: Much of our work is on medical and professional offices, both ground up and tenant improvement. We also work on multifamily residential projects including townhouses and apartment buildings, retail, recreation, and education spaces, installations, and single-family dwellings. The work is fast-paced and exciting. As our firm grows, we are expanding into new project types and increased project sizes.
The Office: Raw Design is located Downtown in an up and coming neighborhood close to bars, coffee shops, and restaurants. We are within walking distance to Trax and Frontrunner and easily accessible by bike. The office is across the street from the Utah Arts Alliance, next door to the Community Gardens, and two blocks from The Gateway. We share our space with a creative agency and our lot with an artist’s studio.
