Travois raises capital for housing and economic development in Indigenous communities, advocates for our clients and provides educational, architectural, compliance and asset management services. Travois strives to improve the lives of Indigenous peoples by providing the tools and resources to create healthy, affordable and sustainable communities.

We value diversity of thought, background, experience and opinion. We create a culture of empowerment and promote an environment that embraces different perspectives. 

We have a great mission and our office culture is just as cool. A renovated historic warehouse near downtown Kansas City, Mo., is where we call home. (If you’re familiar with the area, we’re in the Crossroads Arts District.) In 2010, our in-house architects and other consultants created a new, modern office environment. We added dozens of stand-alone offices, a spacious kitchen, group meeting spaces, a daycare, an exercise area, and a rooftop deck. Above the deck on a steel canopy, we installed a 75-kilowatt photovoltaic system with 330 solar panels.

Our employees enjoy unlimited PTO, a casual dress code, the ability to work from home, catered complimentary lunches once a week, the option to bring dogs to work, and Travois sponsored community outreach, volunteer opportunities, and social events.

We have generous compensation and retirement benefit packages and employer paid health, dental, vision, life and disability insurance. We offer 12 weeks of paid parental leave and have a licensed on-site daycare facility. We encourage professional development, and cover the cost for on-going continuing education, testing and certifications.
