The Technical Director position is a specific opportunity to engage your talents to solve problems for the architectural, engineering, and construction communities by offering creative masonry solutions. Become part of a hand-selected sales/engineering/ masonry consulting team that is successful because of the synergy created by each member’s contributions, and part of a culture that infuses a drive for accomplishment, continuous learning, and improvement.

Architects don’t always see their visions fully realized. Often, designs are changed by decision makers unrelated to the project creation in ways that compromise the value, aesthetics, performance, and design intent of the building and the surrounding community.

As the Technical Director you will also participate as a building envelope consultant with Interstate Brick.  You will offer customizable wall assembly solutions that allow architects and engineers to achieve their design intent so that materials are not later substituted. At Interstate Brick, our team of systems specialists understand design details and construction methods. We offer more sizes, more shapes, and more possibilities to ensure their creations come to life. When creative visions are realized, buildings enhance community experiences for generations.
