Join us

Format is hiring!

Join us in the next phase of our adventure. We are looking for lively minds, not just those starting out on their journey in Engineering but also those with a little more experience who want to play a pivotal role in projects across the world.

About you

Structural Engineers

We would love to hear from Structural Engineers with between zero 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. We can help with training on computational tools and we are keen for our staff to develop a broad skill set. We are looking for someone with an ability to self-motivate, balance their own tasks and interact with Artists, Architects and Fabricators on a range of projects.

Architects and Designers

Dear Architects and designers, while we love hearing from you and seeing the exciting portfolios of work you have to offer, on this occasion we do need an engineer or someone with a degree of formal structural engineering training.

About us

We are a practice of Engineering Designers with backgrounds in structural engineering, coding, mathematics and architecture. We work with brilliant clients and fabrication partners on complex, thought-provoking and fun projects that include contemporary buildings, public art, beautifully-detailed feature staircases, event installations and a number of refined bridges.

You will ideally be located in our studio in the beautiful city of Bath. While we actively enable flexible and remote working within our team we find that projects develop better when people can be together for at least some of the time (covid permitting!)

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