Who are you people?

In Sofia our coworking is currently home to 1000 IT humans. Learn more at Puzl CowOrKing | The Best IT Coworking in CEE.

Oh and all our designs, plans, furniture, legalization, renovations are done in-house by Puzl’s Architectural & Renovation Studio’s team of 10+ experienced and creative professionals.

About the role:

This is where YOU come in. We are looking for a responsible and meticulous Space Architect in Budapest.

Simply put, we see you as the person who will work remotely with our team of architects and engineers. You will be based in Budapest and will share an office with the other members from the team and will represent us locally.

This means that you’ll be a trusted advisor in every step of the process – from research of potential industrial spaces (no worries, we already did that for the first one), 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.

We have a local architectural partner who we are working with as well as a super capable Local HU Worksite Manager amidst our ranks. So don’t worry - you will not be alone. At some point you can get to do a design of your own floor in Budapest. Or even find a new building and lead a project on your own in Budapest.
