Architen Landrell is looking for a Computational Structural Engineer to work with our Head of Design and the company’s young and forward-thinking team. We work with some of the most exciting companies in the world, building inspiring and innovative structures.

As a specialist subcontractor in the construction sector, we collaborate with architects, engineers, main contractors and creative influencers to deliver everything from stadium roofs to inflatable cows, with a generous sprinkling of rock and pop to keep us on our toes!

Every day is different but generally you will:

  • Use Grasshopper to analyse, develop and output engineered design details
  • Perform structural calculations
  • Produce drawings, reports and specifications
  • Assist on projects where the use of computational methods allows optimisation of design
  • Support the sales team with initial engineering and development of value engineering options
  • Be able to work using your own initiative on technical aspects of structural engineering design
  • Demonstrate great attention to detail and show pride in the work produced
  • Manage time on projects to suit deadlines and complete your assigned tasks as stipulated by the Architen Project Manager
  • Liaise with clients, architects and collaborators, representing Architen at project meetings where required


What we need from you:

  • An accredited degree in Structural Engineering
  • Expertise in parametric design and scripting using Grasshopper, as well as AutoCAD and Rhino
  • A portfolio which shows that you have creative thinking, flair and technical skills, illustrating the ability to produce complex engineering designs and manage complex geometries
  • An understanding of national and international design codes and technical guidance
  • Excellent spoken and written English
  • The ability to explain complex engineering principles in plain language, verbally, in writing and through sketching
  • An aspiration to work in one of the most creative industries in the architectural world
  • A positive attitude and a desire to work in a demanding yet sociable environment


We believe that the best work is produced in a collaborative, creative environment so whilst we have a flexible attitude to office/home working, we’d like you to be in the office at least 3 days a week.
