As an integral part of our office leadership team, you will have the potential to take on a key role in the design and management operations of our company.

You excel in a dynamic work environment, enjoy the responsibility of leading and managing a team, and have exemplary time management and delivery skills.
You are literate in AutoCAD and Adobe CS, ideally also in Rhino. English fluency is a key requirement, with business level Cantonese or Mandarin skills a plus.
