Bjarke Ingels Group’s Copenhagen Office is seeking a highly skilled and experienced Computational Design Specialist to join our Design Technology team. The ideal candidate will have 4-5 years of experience in the field of architecture and engineering, with master’s degree in architecture and/or engineering, and a proven skillset with focus on computational design and digital fabrication.

BIG has grown organically over the last two decades from a founder to a family, to a force of 700+. Our latest transformation is the BIG LEAP: Bjarke Ingels Group of Landscape, Engineering, Architecture, Planning and Products. A plethora of in-house perspectives allows us to see what none of us would be able to see on our own. The sum of our individual talents becomes our collective creative genius. A small step for each of us becomes a BIG LEAP for all of us.

The Design Technology team consists of several smaller teams who all work to support the bigger LEAP teams, and our design process in general. The teams are made up of a number of different specialists, ranging from visualization specialists, computational design specialists, BIM specialists as well as immersive media specialists. All strive to both support projects, develop workflows, scripts, and standards, and to research on the next emerging tech that might make an impact for us.

Our built work ranges from the most diverse urban playground and Michelin-star dining - to affordable housing that feels everything but and a school among the verdant fjords of the Faroe Islands. Our vision spans traveling at supersonic speed with Hyperloop One to living in floating cities and eventually Mars! While we are led by a group of expert partners, directors and associates – a flat hierarchy and collaborative spirit are essential to our BIG ecosystem. We share our collective knowledge and expansive network through study trips and educational workshops – BIG School offers in-house lessons while BIG Picture brings in industry experts to inspire and invigorate. We are infectiously ambitious and unified by the shared mission to craft the world we want to live in, to give form to our future one project at a time.
