Architectural Designer

Experience: Minimum of 3 years, maximum of 5 years required


Since our founding in 2004, OBM has pioneered a community-oriented model of outdoor media development and is now nationally recognized by cities and real estate owners alike seeking to implement best-in-class programs that add to the character of urban places. OBM has pioneered zoning changes allowing spectacular signage in fifteen markets (and growing), including Los Angeles, Boston, Washington, DC, Atlanta, Denver and other high barrier-to-entry markets. OBM is a leader in smart city infrastructure, launching the IKE interactive kiosk platform in concert with cities across the United States. In the advertising community, OBM is widely recognized as the owner of the highest impact and most memorable advertising locations in the cities where it operates, and OBM displays are consistently selected as the centerpiece of clients’ outdoor advertising campaigns. Our lasered focus has allowed us to create value for three main constituencies – cities, real estate owners, and advertisers, where we are setting a new paradigm in what we call Landmark Advertising.
