Join our team!

The Shalleck Collaborative, Inc. in Berkeley, California and Portland, Oregon offers comprehensive consulting services in the planning and design of spaces for the performing arts and theatre production systems. Our multi-disciplinary team of thirteen is composed of architects, AV specialists, and former production, design and technical professionals.

We are currently seeking a full-time, architectural/engineering draftsperson and production team member to support design and documentation on our theatre/assembly, production and teaching space projects. We prefer considering candidates with experience drafting in CAD and modeling in Revit, and would consider those with a theatre background and a passion for drawing and technical documentation, or an architecture/interior architecture degree and passion for technical theatre. Most important is the ability to work collaboratively with our team and our architect/engineering partners while having a resourceful, systematic, focused work process and an eye for detail.


  • Bachelor’s or Associate’s degree is required. A Bachelor’s in technical theatre, architecture, interiors or facility electrical engineering preferred

  • 2-3+ years of work experience as a drafter required

  • 1-3 years of work experience in theatre or AV systems design is preferred, but not required

  • Proficiency in AutoCAD required

  • Knowledge of Revit, BlueBeam and MS Office preferred

  • Proven ability to manage tasks and transition between tasks for multiple projects, prioritizing workload

  • Excellent written, oral and graphic communication skills

  • Ability to sketch ideas by hand is a plus

This is a salaried, full time position with a comprehensive benefits package. Some travel may be required from time-to-time, but not more than 10% of the work year. We seek a candidate to work in our office in Berkeley given the technical nature of the work we do, at least for a 1-3 year term, but there is the possibility of subsequently working remotely in California or Oregon. Starting salary while living in the SF Bay Area starts at $60,000, based on qualifications.
