Branded environments are playing an ever-increasing role in the modern marketplace, and rightfully so; these spaces have the potential to shape everyday experiences for millions of people. Environment designers work with clients to create innovative branded environments, inspiring a meaningful connection between brand and consumer.

Ziba is looking for an environment designer to join our Environment Design (EVD) team, someone who appreciates that great work comes from a collaborative process. Together with a dynamic team of experienced, talented designers and researchers, you’ll map out the consumer/user journey, key scenarios, and create multiple concepts for major programmatic elements. The ideal candidate will be able to effectively communicate their perspective and possess strong rapid visualization skills via sketching, modeling, or graphics applications.

You are:

  • Passionate about design and producing creative and elegant solutions

  • Able to lead projects and mentor a team, delivering innovative concepts from programming and schematic design through design development

  • Knowledgeable on current trends in architectural, interior, and retail design

  • Actively engaged with the design community

  • A gifted collaborator with an aptitude for seeing the broader picture and understanding how to integrate multiple touchpoints, creating a holistic consumer experience


You have:

  • 3+ years of experience in creating world-class branded environments, preferably with retail or hospitality projects

  • A degree in architecture, interior design, environment design, or related field

  • Well-rounded knowledge of 2D and 3D CAD programs and Adobe Creative Suite

  • An understanding of building construction, detailing, and furniture/fixture fabrication and the  ability to work closely with contractors and fabricators

  • The ability to translate brand, consumer, and business needs to create engaging narratives in spatial environments

  • The ability to define visual direction of materials, finishes, furnishings, and fixtures


How we’ll support you:

As a mid- to senior level designer, you’ll be expected to leverage your existing experience and skill in the pursuit of creating exceptional branded environments. In return, we will help you grow professionally through peer mentorship in an environment of constant learning and exploration. We expect you to start running on day one, but we’ll be right there running with you.

 What to send us:

  • A one page résumé and a link to your portfolio or samples of relevant work that demonstrate your process as an environment designer

  • A brief introduction letter listing a few of your favorite brand experiences and why you love them
