We offer a full range of career opportunities, from Intern to Project Architect. Our management structure encourages new ideas, growth and leadership from all employees. We believe that work should be challenging, fun and rewarding. Life is too short for drudgery. Quality design requires quality people; our low turnover rate and high employee tenure (seven year average) confirms that this is a quality place to work.
We support continuing education and conduct in-house seminars on hot topics regularly. We also support AIA, USGBC, IIDA, ULI, SEGD and other professional participation. Finally, we encourage a well-rounded life. Family, cultural and community activities are respected and fully supported.

Dreyfuss & Blackford Architects is a mid-size firm of nearly 30 people. This is by design; the firm has remained steady at 20 to 30 people for over 20 years. This is an ideal size for a design firm, large enough to produce significant projects ($50 million or more), flexible enough to produce thoughtful small-scale projects, and small enough for oversight by a single managing principal. This is a non-hierarchical, "flat" organization where the project manager has great autonomy. There is no ceiling—innovation, skill and ability are recognized and rewarded. We attract the best and brightest professionals in the business, and we tend to keep them.
