About the job

Our purpose is to help individuals and organizations with real estate change. Our vision is to change the way projects are delivered through design-led construction. SHYFT offers traditional services through an Integrated Project Delivery model we believe allows clients to better achieve their “Why”. We’ve built a creative problem-solving culture where each team member goes beyond their traditional practice to influence projects from beginning to end. Our goal is to create: A BETTER WAY TO A BETTER SPACE.

Our team of architects, interior designers, construction managers, project managers, and owner’s representatives provide an unbiased and well-rounded perspective that allows our team to create custom solutions for our clients. We love capital cities, as we have locations in Columbus, Ohio; Des Moines, Iowa; and Phoenix, Arizona.

SHYFT Collective is searching for a qualified project coordinator to provide support to SHYFT Collective Project Managers in our Columbus, Ohio office. This position will have opportunities to assist our clients with strategic planning, design, and coordination of small to large and complex projects.
