Own it. “Ownership” is the core of everything we do at RKA. Take ownership of your decisions, your job, and your responsibilities – and reap the rewards that come with it. RKA was an ESOP for almost 20 years, and that spirit of responsibility and opportunities for staff to directly benefit from the growth and prosperity of the company lives on.
Enjoy It. A “Top Firm to Work For,” industry-leading benefits, and a close-knit culture makes RKA a destination employer. We believe in a balance of fun, flexibility, and accountability – as evident by our unlimited time off and a comprehensive offering of modern, progressive benefits.
Professionally Succeed. Why wait years to grow in your craft? Join a firm where we trust, train, and mentor employees to take ownership over the skills they need to grow in their career. We avoid micromanagement and encourage the collaboration that helps you push your own limits. We also offer an immersive intern experience where you can do more immediately than you’ll have a chance to try over years at a behemoth engineering firm.

EMPOWERING OUR PEOPLE…
Inclusivity Increases Engagement. Do you want to feel empowered to make a difference and have a voice? We actively encourage engagement and open feedback to push RKA to its greatest heights. We expect staff to be respectful of each other’s perspectives and collaborate to discover the best solutions for any project we take on. As a result, RKA has been named one of the “Best Firms To Work For” by the Zweig Group (2020, 2021, 2022), honoring the best architecture, engineering, planning, environmental, and construction firms (AEC) firms to work for in North America.
Limitless Career Potential. RKA culture is one of ownership and commitment, and we are trusted in the industry for engineering innovation. Each team member has a vested interest in RKA client success, and that makes us the top choice for clients’ most innovative and out-of-the-box projects. We are strategic partners that excel in our efforts to be helpful, trustworthy, and accountable. RKA has been consistently recognized within the industry including: the Zweig Group’s “Hot Firm List” (2020, 2021) for being one of the fastest growing AEC firms in the United States and Canada; two Engineering Excellence Awards; an ACEC/NC Public Sector LEO award; and ranking thirteen times on the ENR “Top Design Firms in the Southeastern United States.”
Diversity Makes Us Smarter. Talented people are too often underestimated and overlooked. RKA believes that everyone deserves the same opportunity to be successful – regardless of their age, gender, ethnicity, or any other characteristics that make them who they are. Our firm is a psychologically safe space, prioritizing integrity and dignity.
We Believe: Together we are limitless.
