We’re searching for crew members to help us with some fantastic 2011 initiatives.

If you have the experience, flexibility, passion, and desire to learn and change the world one building project at a time, please send us your resume, ideas, availability, and anything else you think we should know.

If you don’t know Amicus Green Building Center, we are like a home improvement/building science store where everything is “green”--healthy, safe, environmentally appropriate, durable, energy and water saving, and future friendly.
We are where the rubber meets the road to help people make great green goals into reality.

We are looking for:

An Interior Designer to help create awesome small projects (kitchen and bath remodels, small additions, etc). The occasional larger project (bigger additions, new construction, etc) is possible.

  • Your interior design experience should include cabinet design; conducting site surveys; creating a vision based on client goals and limitations; and turning concept into reality. Great design eye and flexibility to meet the client’s aesthetic appeal(s).
  • Experience with CAD, especially AutoCAD and/or Revit
  • Experience with green materials is helpful but less important than a rock solid commitment to learn about and use these products and the best practices for using them.
  • Great communication and interpretation skills and patience to work with (potential) clients, contractors, builders, and other participants
  • Have a sense of humor and willingness to pitch in—working as a team
  • Flexible time—could be part-time or dedicated freelance, and there’s the possibility of it growing into full-time
  • Can work offsite but also need to be able to work at our Kensington and downtown DC locations

 

A Community Outreach Coordinator to work with schools, businesses, NGOs and local institutions to support their green teams and initiatives for their people at work, home, and in between.

  • Be outgoing—make connections and partnerships
  • Be supportive—help people with their own goals and programs; share ideas and best practices
  • Be creative—devise and manage program ideas and activities
  • If you have experience with corporate green teams, developing school curriculum, local fundraising programs, and/or have ever wished to see lofty goals become tangible activities—this could be a great role for you.
  • Flexible time—could be part-time or dedicated freelance, and there’s the possibility of it growing into full-time (or in combination with another role).

 

A Retail Sales Rep to work with customers of all stripes that come into the store.

  • Great communication and interpretation skills and patience to work with customers, contractors, architects, designers, and others
  • Retail sales experience is helpful, including front-office and back-office tasks
  • Be a sponge—learning lots of details about lots of products and when to use them (and when not to). Experience with green materials is helpful but less important than a rock solid commitment to learn about them.
  • Knowledge of, and experience in, construction, building elements and the building process would be helpful but not critical
  • Have a sense of humor and willingness to pitch in—working as a team
  • Part-time with the distinct possibility of becoming full-time (individually or in combination with other roles)

 

A Building Trades Rep to work with builders, designers and other pros. Support their projects. Build relationships. Provide expertise, best practices, and contacts as appropriate. Lots of opportunities to build a new line of business.

  • Prior sales experience working with building pros very helpful. Experience in construction would be a bonus.
  • Have a good handle on construction business, terms, processes, common problems, and best practices.
  • Experience with green building will be very helpful, but more important is your willingness to be a sponge—learn tons and share your knowledge
  • Part-time with the distinct possibility of becoming full-time (individually or in combination with other roles).

We are creative and flexible—the same person could cover multiple roles, and they may morph over time.
