This is where YOU come in. We are looking for a responsible and meticulous Architect to represent us in Hungary!

Simply put, we see you as the person who will work with our team of architects and engineers. Most of the team is based in Sofia, Bulgaria, you will be based in Budapest and will have the comfort to work remotely, from home or your own office, and will represent us locally.

This means that you’ll be a trusted advisor in every step of the legalization and documentation process – discuss buildings’ technical specifics with local authorities, share your expertise in regards to implementation, help legalize the project and take care of any related documentation.  

In Budapest you’ll be closely working with our local architectural subcontractor, and our Worksite Manager on the coworking spaces. So don’t worry - you will not be alone. You won’t be required to do any design work in regards to exterior/ interior.
