Hoffmann Architects, Inc. is seeking a results-oriented sales / business development professional for our New York City office. This is a professional sales position requiring cold calls, client meetings, and a high level of participation at networking events during and after business hours and on weekends.
Hoffmann Architects is a specialty architecture and structural engineering firm focused on the restoration of existing commercial, institutional, cultural, civic, and landmark structures. We have built a reputation for excellence by resolving building exterior distress at major symbols of the country’s architectural heritage, such as the United States Capitol building, the New York Stock Exchange, the Smithsonian Institution, Travelers Headquarters, and the Yale Architecture Building. Our technical staff is known for their attention to seemingly small details that can make a big difference in the life of a building. For the business development team, that focus on details translates to a strategic, goal-driven approach to winning new work, with the follow-through to maintain and foster key client relationships. We aim to be the best in our niche field--and we take pride in our work.

About Hoffmann Architects
With nearly 50 people spread out in three offices (CT, NY, and VA), we still manage to maintain a tight community. Every Friday we end work a little early to enjoy “happy hour” together. In addition, we gather for golf outings, bowling competitions, summer family picnics, and winter holiday parties to get to know our coworkers, whether in another state or at the next desk.
Being part of a team that does something few other firms do and even fewer do well is remarkably fulfilling. Our work is second to none because our people believe we’re the best at what we do.
