FineRoot Design+Build

Designer/Team Member

Location(s): San Francisco
Contact Name: Todd McCrea
Contact Email: todd@finerootsf.com
Contact Phone: 4156533096
Salary Range: We offer competitive pay ranging from $35-65/hr.
Web Site: www.finerootsf.com
Job Description:
One of the greatest things about Cal Poly is that you “Learn by Doing”. Unfortunately, after graduating there isn’t a lot of opportunity to continue “doing”. Oftentimes there’s a disconnect between what happens in the office, and those who are building your designs. Many of us go into this profession because we love to build, and love to get our ideas built. Like all creative people we enjoy the process of creating, and love good design, but to an extent it’s the means to an end. At FineRoot we’re doers. We design to build because it’s that creative process that we so enjoy: A sculptor doesn’t only sketch their ideas. We create spaces for people to live with, and spaces we want to be in. We believe that good design is universal, and we don’t stop with garden design. Whether it’s a garden, an art studio, a kitchen and bath remodel, a restaurant, a parklet, or a custom piece of furniture. We design, we build, inside or out, and we continue to Learn by Doing.

We’re looking for someone who wants to roll their sleeves up and jump into the process. If you have a background in horticulture, nursery work, landscape maintenance, carpentry, landscape construction or something else that engaged you with the process, you may want to consider applying to join our team. You’ll still be designing, and have the option to work from home, but we want you to be involved in the process of Doing. This process is invaluable to understanding what it takes to build a design, and how that informs how you design. We just opened our second shop and are looking for someone to grow with us.

We provide the following opportunities, and would love to plug you into all areas, or as many as you can, allowing room to grow into the others as you learn.

  • Landscape construction team member.
  • Landscape gardener for gardens we’ve created.
  • Interior remodeling work.
  • Woodshop work creating custom pieces.
  • Design work for gardens, restaurants, parklets, furniture, vertical gardens, and more.
  • Once you’ve grown with us, leading the landscape projects, taking on more designs independently, and helping build your designs.
  • This is a hybrid position, and a true Design/Build company.

We offer a flexible schedule, medical/dental benefits and paid holidays. We offer you the opportunity to cross pollinate between areas of interest, and to grow with a company that never compromises our integrity to our craft. We form lasting relationships with our clients, and with the projects we create for them. We’re a team of people who value what we do, almost as much as we value our personal lives and the need to find a balance between the two. We value our planet and the communities we live in, and the role we play in making people’s lives better. You’ll need to have a vehicle to get around in as we work primarily in the City, but also in the surrounding Bay Area.

How to Apply: You can see some of our work at www.finerootsf.com, and on Instagram @finerootsf. We look forward to hearing from you! Please send your resume to todd@finerootsf.com.
