This is the most creative and relationally important positions at Murphy Bros. As the initial face of the company, the design/build consultant uses their knowledge of residential remodeling, sales, and design acumen to guide clients from the initial discovery meeting, through the design phase and budgeting process to the final building agreement contract.

Would your co-workers call you ambitious and humble at the same time? Do you believe returning a phone call in short order is just a common courtesy? Do you mind being very well paid for your efforts including an incredibly generous medical insurance plan?

Painter-Shop Specialty

This full-time generously compensated position requires three things: wood finishing “prep” experience, spray experience and hunger to do great work matched only by a positive attitude.

Our work is fast-paced, adaptable with daily deadlines. The work we do is often photographed and ends up in feature web promotions and sometimes in award-winning entries.

What we do matters here, so if you’re just looking for a payday this probably isn’t the place for you.
