Responsible for designing the master plan: part-time remote employee.

We are looking for a creative, hands-on, MCM-obsessed architect or architectural designer to join Mid Mod Midwest as we grow.

The mission of the Master Plan Design Manager is to create stunning schematic designs for mid-century renovations, providing livable options and clearly illustrating/describing your design solutions so our clients can use them to transform the home they want. they have in the house that they will love. (with MCM charm multiplied).

This is a part-time, fully remote and largely asynchronous role. We are looking for someone willing to grow with our company. We will start with a 3 month training period at around 10 hours per week and then expand to around 25 hours per week. This role could expand over time, depending on the desired workload and schedule.


As the Master Plan Design Manager, you will work remotely with our small team (3-5) people and collaborate closely with the Production and Design Assistant. We’re looking for someone who enjoys solving tricky layout problems and making quick statements about what people “could do” for their homes to join our happy group of mid-century obsessed designers.


  • Handle client relationships, including leading kick-off and wrap-up meetings (remotely) for each blueprint you manage (lead 1-2 projects at a time).
  • Collaborate with the design and production assistant to develop the project background information package.
  • Outline the master plan for the project according to our package process and establish boundaries around the project so that it fits within the scope of the master plan.
  • Idea and design of layout options and grouping of design area suggestions.
  • Supervise / participate in the design drawing and document production phases.
  • Writing and adapting text on design recommendations for the Mid-Century Solutions Package. You must be comfortable writing about design in a user-friendly, jargon-free language.
  • Verification and verification of the documentary work of the design and production assistant.
  • Stay in touch with the remote team through our synchronous weekly team meetings, Thursday status updates, and through regular feedback (daily or otherwise graded) through our Asana channels.


  • You are curious about people, how they live in their homes and everything that happens in the middle of the century.
  • You enjoy discovering new niches of design, buildings and history and are happy to get “excited” on behalf of our clients and with the team.
  • You appreciate the value of methodical processes and know that streamlining your creation and delivery process can free up time for excellent design understanding.
  • You enjoy working independently and are happy to take primary responsibility for projects and develop them in depth.
  • You are a good design communicator – you enjoy creating great solutions not only for the appreciation of your fellow designers, but also to share them with non-design oriented owners through clear drawings and written and spoken language .
  • You’re looking for a way to keep design active in your life (or reinvigorate it after a break from your full-time job) without committing to a full-time office job.
  • You’re not trying to add this to other full-time design jobs or another 9-to-5 job.


  • You don’t like and appreciate the range of mid-century design styles, from vintage time capsule to contemporary mid-mod update.
  • You place a higher priority on capital-D-Design than on working and developing from customer-centric needs and their feelings about how they want to live in their homes.
  • You need face-to-face contact with people and buildings to feel fulfilled and think creatively.
  • You need a rock-solid routine – every week ends up feeling different here and every mid-century client and house needs a fresh eye.
  • You want to see every project down to construction management.
  • You don’t like the color yellow – it’s everywhere in everything we produce.


  • Education: MARch, or ideal BArch. Similar degree in interior design, possible.
  • Experience: several years of professional work in design. A strong background in residential design is not necessary if you have spent time working personally with home improvement.
  • Job type: part-time, fully remote, employee.
  • Remuneration: starting at $25/hour, depending on experience.


  • Adobe Creative Suite – we make our blueprints in InDesign.
  • Sketch Up – we do our design modeling in this program to keep our schematic focus.
  • Procreate – we make our design drawings on tablets and you must be able to at least mark up our design and production assistant’s work on this medium.
  • Asana and Toggl for project management and time tracking.


I will start setting up zoom interviews on October 17th. If you think you’re the right person apply here.
