We need a designer

Kerf Design is a small team of designers and craftspeople in Seattle, WA. We design and build a unique, modern style of custom plywood cabinetry and furniture for clients and architects across the United States. We are looking for a designer to join our team.

You will be working under a lead designer (RISD alum) and a technical designer (U of O IARC alum). The position will involve space planning, design of furniture and cabinetry, drafting, and direct communication with clients, as well as computer-aided joinery design/construction and cnc outputting. This is an office design position but you will be working closely with our dedicated craftspeople in a fast-paced woodshop.

The candidate we’re looking for should enjoy working with people, will have a keen eye for detail, a passion for smart and simple design solutions, and a curiosity for how to build things better than the status quo. We are hoping to find a team player who is excited to learn the ropes and ready to take on a range of design tasks.
