Architectural and Construction

MDS Staffing is seeking an experienced Architectural Drafter to fill a work from home position.

Our customer will provide the work station, software, etc. The ideal candidate will be seasoned, somewhere around 10+ years of experience, or equivalent aptitude. The candidate can be located anywhere, but someone NW of the cities is preferred, ideally in the Monticello to Brainerd to Alexandria triangle.

Our customer is an architectural drafting service based in southern Minnesota. They do drafting work for Architects and General Contractors, and, also some design work for private clients. They currently have around 10 employees, with 4 or 5 small office locations. The owner has family and often is visiting lake country, so he’d like to expand up NW of the cities…but this is not required. They used AutoCAD primarily, but would be interested in candidates proficient with Chief Architect for residential or Revit for commercial. This firm does a 50/50 split of residential and commercial construction, and also a 50/50 split of new construction and remodel or tenant improvement.  They currently have “unlimited” vacation, with a policy that you can take as much time off as you want…as long as you are getting the work done and are a productive employee. They currently do not offer health insurance.

Should business grow in the NW metro, there is potential for a small physical office to be established also. With that, aptitude or interest in leadership would be a plus. Self-motivation and good work ethic are a must.
