Architectural Scan Surveyor Job Opportunity

Architectural Scan Surveyor

PPM is an innovative and ambitious architectural measuring and drafting company with offices in California, Seattle, Washington DC, and Salt Lake City. We opened our DC office in 2020, and it has become a thriving region.  We are looking for a full time As-Built Surveyor to join our team at PPM.  Are you interested in learning how to use the latest 3D laser scanning technology to measure residential and commercial buildings throughout the DC Area?  Do you want to join a company with a great culture and room for growth?


You are professional. You’re early to everything and respect the environment around you, always leaving things the way you found them.  You pay attention to the minor details that most people would never notice.

You have a strong, optimistic work ethic and a take-charge attitude. Getting the job done right, on-time, and being proud of your work is your motivation!  You choose to be in control of your own destiny and are not easily shaken.  You expect to work hard, learn fast, and progress quickly in your career.

You have an interest in Architecture. You are fascinated with how buildings are built, and enjoy exploring interesting and unique properties. You aren’t sure if you want to be an architect, but you want to have a career in the AEC industry.

You are tech-minded. You are interested in learning and working with new technologies, both in your work and in your personal life.  You enjoy trying new hardware and software products, and figuring out how to make things easier or more efficient.

You are a problem-solver. You have always enjoyed and performed well in mathematics. You find yourself playing games that challenge the mind, and you get pleasure out of solving a problem. If you don’t immediately know the answer to something, you figure it out!



This is a full-time (40+ hour/week) position, with opportunities for overtime. Your typical week will include the following:

  • Travel to job sites, mostly in the Greater DC Area, occasionally just beyond. Opportunities for regional/national travel!
  • Interact with clients and site contacts, providing excellent customer service.
  • Utilize specialized equipment and software to scan, measure, and document As-Built conditions of all types of properties: houses, apartments, offices, retail buildings, hotels, schools and more.
  • Climb onto rooftops, into attics, and down into crawlspaces when required, documenting all aspects of a structure.
  • Communicate with your team (phone, emails, and regular meetings) and continuously improve quality and accuracy of PPM As-Built plans for every project.


  • $25 – $35 an hour based on experience
  • Bonus based on Individual, Team and Company performance.
  • Professional Development Reimbursement Program
  • Generous Health, Vision & Dental coverage
  • Paid Time Off for vacation and/or sick leave
  • 10 Paid Holidays per year
  • Retirement Plan: 401K with up to 4% match


It’s a great time to join PPM as we work together to achieve our mission of becoming the #1 As-Built measuring company in America.  We offer a fun and challenging work environment that encourages innovation through risk-taking, and rewards results.  We actively promote each employee’s professional and personal development.  We share financial information with everybody, so all employees know exactly how the company is doing.  Most of all, we believe that a positive culture is everything, and share a common set of Core Values that we all believe and practice.  Are you ready to be a Busta?
