The ideal candidate for this position has 3-7 years of high-end residential experience in NYC, is comfortable in a variety of project frameworks, has excellent client interaction and communication skills, and both technical and plant knowledge. This new team member should be self-motivated, have a passion for plants, design, and execution and be able to deal with the day to day demands of a given project with guidance from supervising designers. We are looking for somebody with a strong and positive presence that is able to work diligently with our team and has an ambition for creative growth.

Because we understand that design-build operations are a unique endeavor in NYC, we are open to qualified candidates without a landscape background.  Those who have comparable project management and client communication experiences in other fields are welcome to apply.

Finally, as part of a planned marketing campaign for this coming year, we welcome candidates with experience and interest in the marketing side of the design industry. This includes but is not limited to social media posts, website maintenance, and PR correspondence.
