Lighting Application Designer

ALR is a Northern California based agency representing lighting and controls manufacturers.  ALR was founded on the simple premise of providing the best possible customer service while operating with the utmost integrity.  This has been the core philosophy of ALR for over 50 years, and remains the cornerstone principle of the employee-owned company's culture.


At ALR we love our employees-owners and we love our customers!  We have several departments that work in small teams yet collaborate with one another to get the job done.  And the job is…  selling lights; and we sell a lot of them!  To do that, we have an exceptional team of sales folks, lighting application designers, quotations people and project management personnel.  


We are looking for someone to join our Lighting Applications team in our Oakland office.  Here, you are responsible for lighting design verification for interior and exterior projects using illumination analysis software.  Daily you will work with architectural and engineering firms modifying and organizing CAD drawings for many projects.  You will also be able to offer support and advice for lighting equipment, lighting schedules as well as lighting output to both our Specification Sales Team and Clients.   In order to accomplish this, you’ll need an excellent understanding of CAD Software, preferably AutoCAD.  We are also looking for you to have AGI32 Lighting Analysis Software experience.  A degree is required as well as the other usual stuff like great customer service, excellent problem-solving skills, good communicator and detail oriented.  Lastly, while there will be oversight, this position does require folks to handle projects independently.  ALR wants you to be a contributing member to the team, making decisions that directly impact our performance.     


We have a long history of success and we think we are a darn good team.  As a result, we offer competitive compensation along with great medical coverage.  Of course, paid vacation and national holidays are included.  We also add in dental, vision, life and long-term disability plans for our folks and remember, we are employee owned.  Our retirement plan (ESOP) has been a great success because of our culture, our leadership and our team members hard work.      


If this resonates with you, please apply, we would love to chat.
