Retail Design Leader

Los Angeles, California, United States | Full-time


Create the future of experiential retail design!  We are searching for a creative and resourceful Retail Design Leader with a positive, collaborative work style to lead the design and store planning of retail projects for our national clients based in our Los Angeles office. The ideal candidate will be entrepreneurial, results-oriented and a team player.

We define ourselves as a collaborative because this is the trait that lies at the heart of how we work… Collaboratively.

We are thinkers and doers.

We are visionary and grounded.

We are design-focused and results-oriented.

We don’t believe design happens in a vacuum, nor do we believe in big reveals.

We believe the best solutions are co-authored, and that design is an iterative process.

We like dialogue and debate, and we believe everyone has a voice because there are never any bad ideas.

We’re also champions for diversity as a design collaborative, drawing from all experience levels and cultural backgrounds within our team of “Bergies” – intentionally staffing project teams inclusively to represent the diverse perspectives of the world around us.
