Come and create a world that restores, nurtures, and protects life on our planet through sustainability, resilience, diversity, inclusion, well-being. Our creative, interdisciplinary teams work as small, dynamic studios where you get an opportunity to collaborate with industry experts on some of the most exciting and transformative architecture, engineering, and planning projects in the country and internationally.
When you join INI, you become part of something bigger.
INI designs buildings and spaces that inspire people. We’re a diverse team of innovative, entrepreneurial people with an ambitious vision: to create the best, most sustainable places. It will be your responsibility, even as the newest member of our team, to contribute right away. If this sounds good, let’s talk.
We know our most valuable asset is our people. That’s why we put people first—in everything we do. Happy, healthy individuals contribute to positive, high-performance teams. Your personal success is our collective success. We believe collaborative design can be truly achieved only when the individual goals are in coherence with the collective goals.
A career at INI will expand your vision. Here, young designers work alongside the industry experts, architects partner with engineers, planners work with sociologists, and all of us learn from each other. Our collaborative approach goes beyond our studios; we engage with innovative practitioners from the industry to find new solutions. We believe that our growth is also driven by the kind of person we attract - the ideal one is who can think out of the box, plan big, who thrives in collaboration, and has the determination to realize his or her ideas.
We believe everyone has the potential to be a great leader. And we’re committed to helping people realize that potential. With the mentorship of seniors, these rising stars follow a host of activities that enhance their design & business savvy, sharpen their problem-solving skills, and bolster their emotional intelligence.
INI family is the larger circle of all of us, and our families. To keep this family bond strong, we encourage bringing your children to visit and participate in work environment. Our open studio-like environment loves to get the visitors under 95 cms and also the septuagenarians! We also draw learnings from their experiences and ideas into our design approach. For example, a participative design charrette for a school concept was a great way to learn collaborate with our colleagues children.
• “Why did you become an architect (or engineer or planner)?”
• “Did you have a mentor who impacted your career?”
• “What’s on your bucket list?”
• “How did you end up at INI?”
• “How will we change how we practice design over the next 5-10 years?”
Those are just a few of the questions our people have asked INI’s leaders at our live Ask (INI’s) Leaders Anything (ALA)) sessions. Typically held over lunch or during a happy hour in our studios, these informal Q+As enable staff to learn more about INI and their colleagues, as well as to get advice for advancing their careers and to offer their own feedback. ALAs provide a forum where our leaders can be transparent in answering sometimes difficult questions, ultimately helping to rally our people around our efforts to design inspiring buildings and spaces and to continuously reimagine what INI is and can be.
