A Maker

When you think of the best a family has to offer — support, collaboration and respect — that’s what we value at Simpson Strong-Tie. When there’s a win, we'll cheer you on. When there’s a snag, coworkers step in to help you out. Working on solutions together is just the way we do things here, and that creates an atmosphere that often feels like home.

At Simpson Strong-Tie, you’ll find talented, passionate, dedicated, humble and genuinely kind people who are all connected by our shared mission — to provide solutions that help people design and build safer, stronger structures.

It’s this mission and our strong people-focused values that have made Simpson Strong-Tie a unique place to work for more than 60 years — a place where you can connect, create and build your career. We invite you to learn more about our culture and why our employees are our most loyal customers.


You want to be an important member of a strong team of other makers who take pride in their work and support each other. As a Project Coordinator, you will be responsible for driving company initiatives by partnering with the branch and outside sales team.
