Job Opportunities with Here LA

Here LA is looking for bright and motivated urban designers to join our team

Positions available include:

  • Urban Designer
  • Urban Design Intern

Here LA is a small interdisciplinary design practice that improves the public realm.  We are dedicated to solving complex urban challenges through creative processes and design-thinking that build on the stories of a place. We believe that good design creates happier people, stronger interactions and relationships, and a healthier community.  Our work ranges from the conceptual design of public spaces, parks, and streets to strategic planning relating to growth and change, mobility, and sustainability.  Many of these projects also fold in aspects of tactical urbanism and creative community engagement.  

The positions available will work on the full range of the firm’s projects, in particular, development of urban design concepts, graphic illustrations, plans, maps, infographics, and presentation and outreach materials.  The ideal candidates would have strong verbal and visual communication skills – the ability to translate dense planning topics and concepts into eye-catching and easy-to understand graphics and visual stories.  Ideal candidates would also have a deep interest and inquisitiveness in urban planning topics and urban form in Los Angeles and further afield. 

Proficiency in InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Sketchup, and CAD is required. Additional graphic software experience is a plus.

Intern: Must be enrolled part- or full-time in an Urban Design or related Master’s-level program.  

Urban Designer: Master’s Degree required, with at least one year of experience in the field.

How to Apply: Interested individuals should send their resume and portfolio (and any questions) to hello@here.la.  Please no phone calls. The positions are available immediately and compensation will be commensurate with experience.  Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.
