Job Overview

Type Five is a housing company that builds and designs exceptional homes. We streamline the hard parts of homebuilding so we can focus on what matters most: a seamless process, thoughtful design, and quality craft.

We’re building a homebuilding operating system that brings together our modular design system with software to build homes faster and more economically. We believe that standardizing how every home is designed and built unlocks the ability for more people to own living spaces that meet their unique needs.

As a Permit Architect, you’ll work closely with our head of design to draft detailed plans and permits for our projects. You will manage the permitting process for multiple projects from drafting to submission to revision and resubmittal. You’ll also work with our software and BIM team to accelerate how we are able to assemble and file permits in a way that requires less manual overhead.

We’re looking for someone who’s a creative problem solver, autonomous, and curious to expand skill sets in software-driven parametric design.
