Project Associate – Landscape Design

Full Time

We are seeking an entry- to mid-level Landscape Design Project Associate to join our diverse team of professionals in our Denver office. MIG supports a hybrid work-from-home/remote and in-office schedule, but encourages in-person work for learning and team-building opportunities. Some in-person work will be required for client meetings and team collaboration. Proof of up-to-date COVID-19 vaccination is required for in-person work. 


Collaborative Teammate: You will work as part of a cross-office, cross-discipline team that creates designs for communities, parks and recreation, streets, and programming of community facilities for public and private-sector clients across the U.S. 

Project Work: You will support a team of landscape architects, planners, and project managers on landscape architecture projects in the public and private sector. Responsibilities will vary by project but will typically include assisting a lead designer or project manager with tasks such as site analysis, site design, problem solving, construction detailing, planting plans, selection and design of site amenities and paving systems, aesthetic detailing, and project research. This work will result in the production of conceptual exhibits, illustrative graphics, and full construction document sets. Other responsibilities may include providing support in developing cost estimates, responding to construction submittals and questions, providing sub-consultant and client coordination, and attending client meetings.

Project Types: The projects you will typically work on will include streetscape design; park planning and design; site and landscape design for public and private buildings; campus master plans; children’s play environments; and community engagement (including online meetings and tools).

MIG works on projects nationwide; some travel, evening, and weekend work may occasionally be required for community engagement, site evaluations, or to meet deadlines. MIG encourages a work-life balance and these excess hours can be offset during the week when possible.



To accomplish the responsibilities, you will be able to manage competing priorities, think critically and creatively, work as part of a collaborative team in an open environment, and maintain a sense of humor and camaraderie. In addition, you have some combination of the following qualifications: 

  • A Bachelor’s degree in landscape architecture or a related field.
  • You are local or willing to relocate to work in the Denver office or to attend client meetings and work closely with the team while still having the ability to thrive in a remote (or hybrid in-person / virtual) setting.
  • Able to produce high-quality work products, including but not limited to complete construction document drawing sets and illustrative site plan and site detail graphics. 
  • Ability to speak effectively in front of groups and can participate in small and large group discussions.
  • Excellent skills in graphics and document presentation and written and verbal communication. Plant identification and hand-drawn graphic skills are a plus.
  • You are an adaptable teammate who is willing to pitch in and help others. 
  • Relevant consulting experience working in or with other landscape designers or a closely related field is a plus. 
  • Software proficiency in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, AutoCAD and Adobe Creative Suite. Experience in GIS, SketchUp and/or Lumion is a plus.
