LIFE AT II BY IV

OUR STUDIO:
Headquartered in multicultural Toronto, our studio is spread across two floors in a brick and beam loft space. Flooded with natural light, there is no shortage of inspiration between conversations with fellow designers, an extensive art collection, and libraries filled with inspiration. Our kitchen is always stocked with the best coffee, tea, sparkling water, and snacks.

PRIME LOCATION:
Based in Liberty Village, we are surrounded by the convenience of many great restaurants, coffee shops, and shopping options. Our prime location boasts accessibility to major transit lines (a 9-minute walk to the Exhibition GO Station, and less than 1 minute away from the King TTC line) for commuters, and our close proximity to the Gardiner Expressway saves hours of drive time through city traffic.

EMPOWERING OUR PEOPLE:
We value diversity in our team members and aim to create an inclusive space where everyone feels motivated, comfortable and inspired to do their best work. We invest in annual goal setting and performance reviews, work with designers on benchmarking and growth tracks to further their professional goals, and host leadership workshops. We dedicate time to professional development for technical skills, and who doesn’t love the opportunity for business travel? We go the extra mile.

CULTURE:
Every year, we organize fun events for the entire team. Last year, we hosted a drag brunch in honour of Pride Month, enjoyed a beach day in the summer, shared a five-course meal together at a Michelin-star restaurant to celebrate a great year, and many memories in between.

HEALTH AND WELLNESS:
Comprehensive group health insurance, a hybrid work schedule, summer hours, and bi-weekly virtual yoga sessions – just to name a few.

DOG-FRIENDLY WORKSPACE:
Pets contribute to a happy workplace! Our dog-friendly policy means you will often find a few furry friends roaming around the studio.


CURRENT OPPORTUNITIES

SENIOR TEAM LEAD

Are you a great leader? A great communicator? A great mentor?

We’re on the hunt for a Senior Team Lead with an enthusiasm for people and design to lead a creative team.

As Senior Team Lead, you’ve got a solid 10 years of experience under your belt, and your portfolio reads like a love letter to multi-unit residential, hospitality, and even a sprinkle of retail design. But it’s not just about the years—it’s about the experiences that come with them.

When it comes to concept design and development, you don’t just think outside the box—you design it and make it a reality. Block and space planning you’ve got down to an art, making sure everything fits just right and looks even better. You’re the director behind the concept, turning visions into reality and selling creative dreams to clients like a pro. You’ve got the charisma, design integrity, and presentation skills that can turn anyone into a design enthusiast.

As an ambassador of our brand, you’re not just a leader – you’re a mentor, a motivator, and a coach. You execute tasks and talents with finesse, overseeing junior, intermediate, and senior designers, as well as the CAD and Revit techs, through each project phase and sprinkle your design wisdom along the way. You’re inclusive, welcoming, and you foster a team culture that thrives with passion and integrity.

Ready to lead, inspire, and collaborate with a creative team to design amazing interiors? The stage is set, and the spotlight could be yours – send us your CV and portfolio to resumes@iibyiv.com and let’s design a future together!
