As an international architectural firm, UNStudio is active in the broadest fields of architecture. Our project portfolio covers every aspect of architecture, ranging from small- to large-scale projects, research and theory. Our mission is to design for lasting impact and contribute to the societal challenges of urbanization, climate change, ageing populations and socioeconomic inequality. Driven by purpose and focused on solutions, we create value by designing for the implications of these megatrends on our built environment.
Our offices are located in Amsterdam, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Frankfurt, Dubai and Melbourne with over 300 staff from more than 27 countries. The atmosphere within each of them is international, multidisciplinary, design-oriented and ambitious, but also open, non-hierarchical, team-based and friendly, with attention to personal wellbeing, knowledge development and career planning.
We are currently searching for a full-time sustainability specialist with strong leadership qualities to spearhead our industry leading Sustainability Engineering working group in a structured way, ranging from theory and education to implementation on a project level. In Amsterdam or Frankfurt.
The group’s focus is on the implementation and the engineering of concrete solutions. You should therefore bring relevant experience on project coordination and engineering, which you will be able to apply to UNStudio’s key international projects.
In this role, your responsibilities will include managing our in-house knowledge, developing training programmes, conducting relevant R&D, and guiding internal consulting of projects. You will also be leading the development of workflows and tools (in collaboration with the Design Technology group) and verify these tools against relevant standards.
As we believe a life-cycle approach in decision-making is a key to our growth, you should have knowledge of Life cycle analysis for buildings (no LCA experience on product level – EPD – needed).
In a constantly changing environment, you should also be aware and stay up-to-date on current market needs, trends and the dynamic regulatory environment in the EU.
