(CLOSED) Open position: Architect

News > Opportunity for Entrepreneur

You dream in opportunities. Whenever you see a building, you see its potential. It might actually keep you awake at night. You love to link these opportunities to the environment of the building and you see connections where other people don't. Your ideas are not only great on paper, you have at least one really cool building project you are proud of. Your passion for buildings has been executed and awarded at least once.

Please note: This is a position for an independent professional with an entrepreneurial drive within a cooperative, for a long-term collaborative engagement. We are in the process of creating new teams and we seek help from an experienced architect.

We are working on several projects in urban redevelopment and aim to convert existing buildings into sustainable stock. We offer a position for an experienced architect interested in working on integrated sustainable solutions. You operate from an analytic systemic perspective, and are capable of applying that to the built environment. You have an eye for excellence, both for design and communication (diagrams, layouts, etc). You will be active in the Future Proof Building team and will closely cooperate with the Rotterdam Metabolists. 

In addition to the above, the following is of importance:

  • You are comfortable working as a freelancer
  • You are a creative, well-coordinated teamplayer 
  • You are experienced in renovation, detailed concept development and visualizations
  • Your English and Dutch speaking and writing skills are perfect
  • You are punctual, precise and professional
  • You like to work on innovative, new approaches

Sounds like you? We’d love to hear from you. Please read our entire Work with us webpage carefully, and follow the procedure stated to apply.

Working in a cooperative

We are a cooperative of independent entrepreneurs. We earn our living by engaging society with full responsibility and develop revolutionary projects. We work together in teams to stand stronger together. This is not for the faint of heart, so we need you to carefully consider if you can work as an independent.

When you apply, we need you to have read the entire Work-with-us page, and follow its instructions carefully. Fill out the questions set out on that web page to apply, supported by your CV and other documents.

Try before you buy

If you have any questions or are curious to find out more, we can schedule a Skype meeting, or even better: join us for lunch or drinks to get a better understanding of who we are and what we do. Please send an email to work@except.nl to apply for one of the following events:
