I thought that I had already cherry picked most of the companies that are hiring from Fast Company‘s list of Most Innovative Companies, but there were a few that I chose to save for later. Populous is one of them. They’re a Kansas City based design firm (with offices in Brisbane, London, New York, Knoxville, Denver, Singapore, Nashville, Auckland, and Hong Kong) that specializes in “creating environments that draw people and communities together for unforgettable experiences.” I know that verbiage is a little flowery, so to put it more simply, Populous offers comprehensive design and architectural services that focus on major venues like sports stadiums, arenas, exhibition centers, and similar large spaces. They recently finished Target Field for the Minnesota Twins, and before that it was the new Yankee Stadium. I’ve seen the new Yankee Stadium in person, and it’s incredible. If you want to see more of Populous’ work, you can take a look at their Showcase and their projects list. There’s no way you won’t be impressed.
Looking at Populous’ work is cool enough, but what really puts it in perspective is looking at their page called Populous By The Numbers. Here’s a quick rundown: $20 billion in projects; 1,000 projects completed; 510 million square feet of space designed; 24 Major League Baseball franchise clients; 30 NFL franchise clients; 500 employees; and 150 design awards. There’s no doubt that Populous is a leader in their space. Their work appears to go well beyond architecture and design, so I’d imagine that they offer all kinds of jobs; however, right now the options are pretty limited. Their Jobs page provides some simple application information along with a list of current US based opportunities. Right now the only entry level position is for Help Desk Administrator. If that’s not what you’re looking for, but you’re digging Populous, I recommend that you check out what kind of positions current employees have via LinkedIn, and then reach out to the HR team at Populous to inquire about future vacancies.
