Join us

Format is hiring!

We are a young practice of Engineering Designers with backgrounds in structural engineering, coding, mathematics and architecture. We’re having a great time working with a range of brilliant clients and fabrication partners on complex, thought-provoking and fun projects that include a 200m long exposed timber power-station roof, a freeform timber shell in the arctic circle and elegant aluminium-supported fabric canopies in the USA amongst many others. We’ve actually got too much to do, so we are looking for someone to join us at our office in the beautiful city of Bath (Somerset, UK)

Alongside our day-to-day project work we carry-out original research and develop our own computational tools. We’re obviously interested in structural engineering but we also like to apply the skills developed in this pursuit to art, science, product design and architecture.

We would love to hear from Structural Engineers with between one and three years of experience, preferably with a working knowledge of Grasshopper/Rhino but primarily with an enthusiasm for engineering design and a questioning attitude (you will need this!). We are mostly interested in someone to work with us full time but would also be happy to hear from those considering part-time employment so they can share their working week with other interesting pursuits.

We offer mentoring from people at the forefront of engineering design, a truly friendly and flexible working environment and the chance to help develop a growing business.
