PART TIME Marketing And Business Development Coordinator


HPZS / Chicago, Illinois


HPZS is a full service woman owned architectural firm based in Chicago, with specialties in Historic Preservation and Sustainable Design. Our work is focused on Preserving a Sustainable Future for Chicago, and many of our projects focus on combating climate change through our work in adaptive reuse and affordable housing. Our projects have successfully restored, renovated and even saved some of Chicago’s and the Midwest’s most iconic historic architectural gems, from the Henry Hobson Richardson designed Glessner House, to the Rookery Building by Burnham & Root, the Dana Thomas House by Frank Lloyd Wright, and Louis Sullivan’s Peoples Savings Bank in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. HPZS provides innovative design services for a wide variety of buildings and structures, both large and small, ranging from numerous projects at Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry and The Chicago Temple Building, to the development of a full block-long commercial district at the University of Illinois at Chicago’s South Campus, to the redevelopment of the Chicago Housing Authority’s Dearborn Homes.

This 20-hour a week position is also focused on supporting the Managing Principal and her marketing and business development plans, and will have an increasing requirement for the candidate to take on a more independent role as their knowledge of the firm and our processes increases. While the current position will cover a wide breadth of responsibilities, this is currently only a Part Time position; however, the trajectory of this position may eventually lead to a full-time position with increasing Marketing and Business Development responsibilities.
