Current Openings
At Desmone, we want you to thrive personally and professionally. Our culture is built around the health, wellness and individual goals of our team members. Our work reflects the range and diversity of the clients we serve. You won’t see a single style or aesthetic agenda — we design high-performing buildings and spaces optimized for the people who live, work, and play within them. If you are inspired by helping others build their vision, we want you to join us.

Perks

Diverse Projects

Our portfolio and active projects include civic, community, commercial, education, healthcare, hospitality, industrial, single family, multi-family, religious, and retail. Nearly all of our staff works across multiple types.

Commitment To Community

We believe that through serving & inspiring others to be their best, we will achieve our best.

Grit Without Ego

We hash out design challenges, charrette regularly, explore unexpected solutions, but we leave our egos at the door.

Small Firm Feel In A Mid Sized Firm

Our firm’s studio structure allows everyone to have a voice, and provides less experienced studio members access to approachable senior staff whenever you need it.

Benefits

Work From Home Flexibility

Our employees have the option to work from home up two days a week.

Health, Dental, Vision, Life and Pet Insurance

We believe that healthy employees (and their furry friends) make happy employees. We offer a full range of benefits to cover all of your needs.

“Beyond Desmone” Program

This firm-sponsored series connects our designers with local craftspeople through excursions, fabrication shop tours, and hands on workshops, planting the seeds of diversity and creativity in all of our work.

“Desmone Discovers” Program

Do you miss the element of discovery and experimentation that you had in school? This newly-formed internal group researches products, techniques, and case studies that are relevant to the built environment.
