BowerBirding is not your average job.

Imagine your job was to travel to Berlin, Tokyo, or Rio de Janeiro to meet every single architect in town to see what projects they're working on, and to uncover design that's never been seen before. 

Crazy right? But that's exactly what we do. And now that we're expanding all over the world, we need your help. 


The BowerBird Team.

Eszter Riga BowerBird Europe 

"I was familiar with BowerBird from previously working as an art & design journalist, and loved the concept. In retrospect, the freedom of working remotely is definitely one thing that adds a lot of fun and also responsibility to the role in the best possible way. Seeing incredible architecture getting published in international media – especially when you know you were a part of making that happen – is very satisfying.  

"It was mostly an instinctive feeling, Ben’s and Nic’s motivation was very persuasive from the get go. To this day, I still feel very fortunate to be working in an environment that supports collective as well as personal growth, with such an amazing, growing team of driven people, who all share the common goal: wanting to make change."

"Having been a user of the BowerBird platform in my previous job, I was already familiar with the platform and its benefits. The idea behind the platform - to democratise architectural publishing, is something I felt strongly about and the guys behind the idea are some of the best people I’ve met professionally, ever. 

"The job is engaging, challenging, and there’s so much variety in the tasks. I'm trusted to work remotely and have full autonomy over how and where I work, which has been incredibly motivating. I have unwavering support from the rest of the team so even though I work remotely I feel very at ease if any questions pop up. On top of all that the potential for travel and exploration really grabbed me."

I came across the opportunity with BowerBird by chance and thought it sounded like such a dream. Flexibility, responsibility, plus being able to continue to be a part of my favourite industry and keep adding to the amazing network I have built over the years. I’m fascinated by the built environment and love getting to know the brilliant minds behind it.

Ben & Nic’s recruitment process was great. I felt more reassured with every conversation, and by the end of the process it was a no-brainer. The team are amazing and the role is really varied - there’s never a dull moment as a BowerBirder! The message behind our mission is incredibly powerful and I’m excited to be a part of it.

BowerBird life.

Each BowerBirder has a country, or region that they manage. Your job is to find architects and design journalists in that region, meet with them and support them in using BowerBird. We do this in all sorts of ways, but our favourite is to jump into a city and meet every architect we can find.* 

You'll need a home base. Somewhere in a big city with lots of architects. This will also be your first city to explore. Another BowerBirder will join you on this first 'city hit' and teach you how to BowerBird.* Once you've done one city, you can start to explore other cities in your region. 

Over time, BowerBird communities start forming. You support your community by running events, partnering with architecture organisations and getting more of the local architecture published.

You get paid as your community grows. This means the more effort you put in, the more you get out. It also means that as long as your community is growing and engaging you have the freedom to structure your work day/week/month/year in a way that suits your life.

*Obviously the COVID-19 situation makes travelling challenging, so for now and the foreseeable future, everything we do is done remotely.


The checklist.

Here is a checklist of important things you'll need to consider before applying.

  • You need to love architecture.  

Being part of an existing architectural community is a big advantage, and you must be genuinely interested in the built environment, and making a positive difference. 

  • Language.  

You obviously need to be able to speak to the people in your region. This will often require speaking the local language, or being based in a country with a high proficiency of english. 

  • You need to be good at research.  

Finding architects in each city is the first step to meeting them. So lots of Googling and spreadsheets is required. 

  • Remote working.  

The BowerBird team is spread all over the world. We do a good job of staying in touch with things like video calls and chat tools, but a lot of the time you'll be working independently. Some people love this, other people miss the structure and routine of a 9-5 job (hard to believe, but it's true).  

  • 2 years minimum.

It takes time to build a community. So this role really needs a two year commitment.  

  • Working on the road.  

You need to enjoy traveling and be good at the logistics of organising trips and working while on the road.  

  • Technology.  

Being a remote team, we use every online tool we can find to stay connected and keep organised. Embracing new apps and technologies is a must in the BowerBird world.  

  • Social media.  

Every Bowerbirder has their own Instagram and Linkedin presence. So already having a professional pressence on social media is a big advantage.

  • Visas and residency.

You need to legally be able to stay and work in the region that you want to BowerBird in.
