Across our 14 offices, we place an emphasis on onboarding, team building, and supporting our communities. As part of this month’s wellness activities, our colleagues in Seattle learned more about the city’s Lime bikes, bike safety and theft protection.

New in our portfolio: The Thompson Lake House in Eagle, Idaho, was designed to complement its surroundings with an aesthetic guided by the beauty of raw materials. Digital technology makes the home customizable with glass hangar doors that can enclose the living space or open it up to the outdoors.
CTA’s day-to-day is guided by a deeply ingrained mountain-region warmth and an emphasis on kindness and personal interactions. For us, a handshake is invaluable and relationships aren’t taken lightly. This personal touch exists in all of our business interactions with clients and collaborators across every region, office, and partnership.
Working at CTA provides the opportunity to accelerate professionally in a rich and supportive environment. Our team members possess an adventurous spirit, which originates outside of the workplace but extends into the design sphere and all aspects of our work and personal lives. This is why we emphasize exploration, wellness, and balance in both our operations and our output.
We embrace our responsibility and leadership role in advancing design and building practices that promote high performing and healthy buildings while protecting our natural resources. In an ever-changing market, we strive to stay ahead, developing the most current sustainable design practices.
CTA is an active national member of the U.S. Green Building Council, participates in local USGBC chapters in multiple states, and is a proud signatory of the AIA 2030 Commitment to achieve carbon-neutral buildings by the year 2030.
We are mindful of our responsibility to influence the communities beyond the spaces we design; this is why we are intimately involved in individual and community development. Team members are encouraged to pursue volunteerism, and given time off to accomplish it. We are volunteer tutors, mentors, coaches, and public board and committee members, where our professionals take on a great many leadership roles.
CTA is also involved in supporting local art, music, and theater, historical building preservation projects, and fundraising activities. Our communities are our homes -- we’ve chosen to live there for a reason, and we feel it’s our responsibility to make a difference.
We hire creative, resourceful, passionate people who focus on innovation and daring exploration. Our team members love sharing their CTA stories. To learn more from and about our dedicated employees, visit us at ctagroup.com/joinus
At CTA, we take a people-first approach to our design process. We place a high value on the success of our clients and let client care lead our work.
This people-first approach begins with our internal team and extends seamlessly to our interactions with partners and clients.
I have been working at CTA Architects Engineers full-time (More than 3 years)
This firm makes me feel empowered. I was hired for one type of position but was able to carve out a niche to fill another (that I'm super passionate about). I've never worked anywhere as collaborative and community-minded as CTA. This place feels like home.
Not a con, per se... I wish everyone was as rah-rah as I am, but I've seen a fair amount of just-get-my-work-done-and-go-home team members be happy here as well.
Advice to Management
Continue to seek diversity -- it's a great source of strength!
I applied online. I interviewed at CTA Architects Engineers (Great Falls, MT) in June 2016.
Interview was very easy. Phone interview first and then an in person interview which seemed more like a formality. Seemed interested in knowledge as well as personality, which seemed like a huge plus. Everyone I met was awesome.
