Careers

We’re excited about the future. Design it with us.

HOK designs buildings and spaces that inspire people. We’re a diverse team of innovative, entrepreneurial people with an ambitious vision: to create the world’s best, most sustainable places. It will be your responsibility, even as the newest member of our team, to contribute right away. If this sounds good, let’s talk.

People at HOK

What drew me to HOK is our collaborative approach to design. While my focus is on interior architecture, I frequently work with experts across HOK’s multiple disciplines on a variety of projects types. It’s an educational process where we constantly learn from each other.

HOK has given me opportunities to explore new ideas without fear of failure, develop my passion for technical design and grow my leadership skills. Recently I was invited to participate in an emerging professionals program with the technical board and share in discussions about HOK’s purpose and goals. At HOK, you’ll find passionate colleagues who want to share in your success.
Coming from a smaller practice, I immediately noticed the benefits of joining a multidisciplinary firm like HOK that has the expertise and resources to work on projects of all types and scales.

While we are a large global firm, HOK has an “if you can do it, go for it” attitude that supports professional growth and ambitions. This has allowed me and a small team of colleagues to explore and position HOK as a thought leader for what we see as the next big thing in live entertainment: esports.
HOK understands that people have lives outside the office and does what it can to support those individual needs. At HOK I’ve had the opportunity to transfer studios twice—first when I moved from Dallas to Los Angeles to be closer to my future husband and a second time when we moved back to Dallas to be near family.

Both times I was greeted with open arms at our LA and Dallas studios. I continue to be grateful for this support that has allowed me to grow personally and professionally.
