LK Architecture Careers Coffee
Join Our Team

Careers

Our primary focus is to encourage personal development and growth. We thrive because we’re surrounded by talent. Our teams are the foundation of everything we do. And with that, we’ve created a nationwide firm, opening up opportunities all across the country and the world.

  • Proud to Be Employee-owned

    More important than outstanding company benefits, LK is owned by the very people who make it happen. Following your second anniversary with the company, you will be invited to become a fully vested stockholder with a gradually increasing share each year thereafter. This, in turn, allows you to join in the success and growth of the company.

  • Positioned for Sustainable Future Growth

    LK has been practicing architecture for over 50 years and has consistently grown to become one of the top 40 architectural and engineering firms in the United States. Our long-term relationships with our clients and within the industry ensure continued prosperity for years to come. A large number of our people have been with the company for more than 20 years. Good people tend to stay where they are valued, allowing their careers to flourish and become a part of who they are.

  • Your Career Is in Your Hands

    At LK, we revere each of our employees’ professional licenses and certifications. The heart of our practice is based on the expertise of the licensed professionals that serve our clientele. So it’s imperative we provide a number of continuing education opportunities both in-house and through our allied professional association educational programs.

    Newly licensed professionals benefit from our broad range of responsibilities we impart. Each project has a goal of enhancing architectural and engineering capabilities not only in the office, but also the profession. The responsibility given and experience gained in managing projects from design development through construction administration, including project scheduling, budgeting and production, makes our training program like no other in the industry. Your impact within the company is up to you. The only limitation at LK is solely based on the level of ambition, ability and professional competency.

  • Opening Doors for Professional Mentorship

    As a young professional in the world of architecture and engineering, it is important to foster relationships with skilled experts to guide and support growth in every aspect of life. At LK, our licensed experts, project managers and senior administration are truly accessible and engaging in their efforts to mentor budding professionals as they grow in the practice. We’re all located in one office. The value of having such an experienced team located all in one place, at your fingertips, is immeasurable.

  • In Our Industry, Licensure Is Everything

    We support our employees in their efforts to obtain architectural and engineering licenses as well as related professional certifications. We pay for the first round of testing and the time off to take exams and associated training, including current ARE (Architect Registration Exam) study materials as well as ARE mentors and study groups.

    We also work to coordinate pre-professional training requirements in advance of testing. From business development to project management to the multiple design phases of architectural and engineering practice, we task you with project responsibilities and expectations to gain the experience and knowledge required of licensed professionals. This includes our own senior staff who serve as in-house AXP (Architectural Experience Program) coordinators as well as other professionals who serve on the State of Kansas Board of Technical Professions and the national board of the NCARB (National Council of Architectural Registration Boards).

  • We Are Family

    In addition to scheduled vacations and holidays, we understand that you have a life outside of work. So we’re open to flexible work schedules to accommodate life emergencies and special family occasions. We encourage participation in office-sponsored events and community service such as the annual Wichita Corporate Challenge, Red Cross Blood Drives and the United Way Community Giving Campaign. We work to accommodate your participation in church, school and municipal service committees and boards and celebrate your efforts to serve and make a difference in our community.

    We strive to stay connected to one another throughout the year with quarterly company gatherings disguised as staff meetings, department celebrations, golf and party activities, as well as annual corporate events like a picnic at the zoo and formal Christmas party.

  • We Are Diverse

    Diversity is a key ingredient to LK’s success. From Chilean to Lebanese, Indian to Brazilian, Texan to Wichitan, our firm is comprised of professionals from varying national and ethnic backgrounds. This diversity is reflected in the projects we do. The majority of our staff members are native Wichitans; this keeps us grounded in the local community and stand tall on the business skyline of our hometown. But, the real creative magic happens when these different backgrounds coexist, combine and collaborate with each other. Each project displays the various tastes and ethnic cultures of our team. This is brought about success in our business giving each project both unique qualities and innovation.

  • Why Wichita?

    Wichita, over the last few decades, has become a cultural oasis in the heartland. The Air Capital is growing, thriving and has always been an industrial powerhouse known worldwide for producing many products with cult followings. It’s one of the best cities to raise a family, get out and meet new people, and truly become a part of a big family. If all of this sounds too good to be true, check the numbers for yourself.
