Thank you for your interest in working at RareField.


Formerly Paxton Gate Design/Build, we’ve been working on projects in the Bay Area for 25 years. During that time, we’ve evolved from a landscape company to a firm offering all aspects of design and construction including hospitality design, residential remodels, additions and new construction, furniture, product design and more. And we’re always looking for qualified individuals to join our ever-growing team. Are you passionate about creating amazing spaces? Do you share our fanatical attention to detail, uncommon commitment to customer service and unique vision? Have you been looking for a team that holds itself to a higher standard? We expect this from our crew and we hold this at the forefront when considering a new hire. If you've got a great attitude, are excited about working on unique projects with a team of like-minded individuals, and you think you have the drive and determination to help us push the boundaries of design, construction and performance, then we want to talk to you.


  • Our newly designed studios on Valencia Street house a dynamic and fun design and management team. Our design aesthetic is modern yet not stark and soulless. The project and needs of our client guide the design; not the designer’s ego. Our teams—both design and build—are eager to try new things, experiment, and never shy away from a problem. We offer competitive pay, an excellent work environment, a strong team atmosphere, and full benefits—not to mention an opportunity to work on some of the coolest restaurants, retail spaces, gardens and residences in one of the most dynamic cities in the country. Our employment package also includes offerings you won’t often find at firms of our magnitude such as company retreats, travel benefits and a growing collection of other rewards.
