We're looking for talented architects and leaders!

There’s NO place like CDA!

Starting a new job at a new firm is a major life decision. We get it. But life is too short to spend working for a company you don’t love. That’s why at Cordtsen Design Architecture, we prioritize creating a fulfilling, flexible work culture along with generous, competitive pay and an exceptional benefits package.

At CDA, you’ll be part of a supportive, encouraging, and award-winning team of talented architects and designers while living and working in one of our offices in beautiful Tampa Bay, FL or Newport, RI — two of America’s most popular lifestyle destinations.

You’ll enjoy an energetic and engaging faith-based culture aspiring to a set of core values like kindness, gratitude, and service to others. And you’ll find opportunities for career growth and advancement, including as a leader and mentor. And while we place a high value on client relationships, we always make sure you know how much you’re appreciated and valued.

Every day at Cordtsen Design Architecture can be a dream come true!
