Competitive Pay

We are loyal to our employees. Working for JRA Architects, you will enjoy competitive pay as well as 401k benefits with the opportunity for profit sharing after one year.

Open-Office Environment

If you are looking for cubes and closed doors, look somewhere else. Collaboration matters to us. You won’t find anything in our offices that stifles creativity. Our offices are open, our management is available, and you are a part of the team the moment you walk through our doors.

Roles at JRA

JRA Architects has become a destination for some of the brightest architects and designers in Lexington and Louisville, Kentucky. Our nimble size, collaborative environment and rich history allow us to develop long-lasting relationships with clients that respect our craft, resulting in interesting, challenging and purposeful work for our team.

Working at JRA

You want to be proud of what you create - designs that are as inspirational and aesthetic as they are practical and functional. At JRA, we design for the benefit of the user, in beautiful form.

From our open and collaborative office space to our workplace flexibility, you will find JRA a place in which you look forward to working each day. Together we make significant impacts on our clients’ spaces while striving to maintain the healthy work environment we’ve cultivated over the years.

When working alongside like-minded, light-hearted, warm-spirited coworkers who strive to create meaningful relationships with clients and deliver top-notch results every day, you’ll see work as fun again.

We believe that giving back means more than writing a check. We recognize that volunteering time and effort to make a difference is important for the success and vitality of our communities. At JRA, you’ll have the opportunity to improve your community while working for a firm that’s improving you.

We have a great mix of employees with some who have been with the company for less than a year, many for 10, and some over 20 years. Our tenured staff sees knowledge sharing as a vital part of growth for both employees and the business.

At JRA, we move well beyond helping our clients solve design problems. Our collaborative team relies on our deep well of multidisciplinary expertise to re-define architectural experiences, and our people are the cornerstones.
