Part 1 Architectural Assistant/Junior Architect - Upshoot, PropTech

at Upshoot in London

Junior Architect (Property)
Full time
Tower Bridge

Upshoot is the world’s first search engine that allows people to instantly access the potential and value of houses in the UK.

We are looking for an ambitious and accomplished Junior Architect to play a key role within our recently launched tech company.

Who we are

After years of technical innovation and collaboration with experts in Architecture, Property, Economics and Web development, Upshoot is a ground-breaking online platform and property search engine. Founded by award-winning Architect Adam Tarr and backed by a distinguished board and investors, Upshoot is the first PropTech business of it’s kind.

Our Mission

We strive to not only become the UK’s leading property design, search & delivery platform but to completely disrupt the global property sector through automation, innovation, mapping, design and analytics.

The Role

Under the leadership of a qualified Town Planner & mentorship of an award winning RIBA registered architect, you will gain invaluable experience across multiple disciplines including design. You will have the opportunity to apply your recently developed creative skills to shape world-class digital products. Your work will have real impact upon the UK residential housing market and architectural landscape, influencing the future of how we live and design. This position would suit a Part 1 Architectural student who wants to bridge the gap between their educational theory and commercial reality; someone who views the architects’ role as one of ‘communicator of ideas’; someone who wants to grow during their year out by absorbing other skills outside the traditional architectural remit.

• Utilise & develop in-house systems
• Providing technical and administrative support
• Develop and pitch creative concepts
• Multi-dimensional design
• Converting complex data into actionable insights
• Diagnose problems and suggest solutions
• Collaborate with team members across various sectors of the business, sometimes outside of the
architecture & planning remit

About You:

• Experience with graphic & multi-dimensional design software packages
• Strong data analytical skills
• An aptitude for mathematics and algorithms
• Have a creative & contemporary design disposition
• Willingness to embrace & employ new technologies/software
• Confident in workshopping ideas and accepting constructive feedback
• Able to work to deadlines
• Comfortable in a dynamic start-up environment
• Excellent written and verbal communication skills as presentations (crits) are integral
• Qualified as Part 1 Architect or equivalent

• Experience with UK planning rules & regulations
• Exposure to UK Planning policies and development guides (UK and Wales)
• Basic programming experience

What we offer

• Opportunity to receive guidance from an award winning RIBA registered architect
• Gain career-defining experience within a ground-breaking, London PropTech company
• A highly competitive reward and recognition package
• Generous annual leave offering with 28 days holiday + bank holidays
• Pension scheme
• Access to a brand new, state-of-the-art WeWork office in Tower Bridge with unlimited freshly-roasted
coffee, snacks, beer taps, ping pong, fantastic city views with regular events and discounts on offer
• New joiner lunches, birthday celebrations, fortnightly team-cooked lunches, and regular team-building
