Work With Us

Our multi-disciplinary practice fosters a creative, disciplined, and collaborative environment where architects, engineers, interior designers and other professionals work closely together, giving individuals the opportunity to gain experience in multiple project types. We value our employees, and offer a comprehensive benefits package that is extremely competitive when compared to our peers within the industry.

EwingCole places a high value on professional development and has developed a structured approach to career pathing. EC Engage – our proprietary performance feedback tool – provides employees and supervisors with the tools to monitor progress toward the achievement of personal goals. In addition, we have several internal organizations designed to effectively define and promote a better understanding of our common values and purpose.

EwingCole Continuing Education conducts firm-wide learning sessions that develop technical literacy, communicate firm-wide standards, and outline best practices for delivering design excellence.

Women @ EC is a collaborative network of women committed to influencing peers, inspiring growth, and realizing the potential for lasting cultural change.

What’s Happening @ EwingCole recognizes and celebrates the accomplishments of our team, facilitates internal design presentations, and organizes social activities.

Emerging Professionals @ EwingCole provides broad exposures to critical elements of the profession, and to prepare them for licensure exams.

Current Openings

EwingCole is an equal opportunity employer. We recruit, employ, train, compensate, and promote without regard to race, color, religion, marital status, age, national origin, ancestry, physical or mental disability, medical condition, pregnancy, genetic information, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, veteran status, or any other status protected under federal, state, or local law.

Emerging Professionals

As designers, we draw upon ideological constructs or reference built work as we remake or invent new programs in the context of a rapidly changing world. Given the immediacy of their contact with academia and their immersion in a fluid and rapidly evolving culture, our emerging professionals often play a critical and collaborative role in this dialogue.

We value young graduates for the quality of their work, and we actively seek to integrate their fresh and unencumbered views into our collective knowledge base. Our mentorship program for architects, engineers and interior designers is designed to provide emerging professionals with broad exposures to critical elements of the profession, and to prepare them for licensure exams.

“I initially joined EwingCole as a summer intern and worked closely with the design team on the interior and exterior of a new children’s hospital. After graduation, I returned to the firm full-time because I knew the responsibilities given to younger staff were unique to the profession.”

– Joe Wood – Syracuse University, 2014

“Upon graduation, I was drawn to EwingCole’s wide variety of projects. Since joining the firm, I have worked on a range of projects including the Villanova Basketball Pavilion – from the start of conceptual renderings through to construction administration. In addition to the various project opportunities, I am co-leading our Emerging Professionals Group – where we focus on collaborative and educational events for architects, interior designers and engineers pursuing licensure. Every year we participate in Philadelphia Parking Day where we work together, designing an installation to take over a parking spot and turn it into a “park”.”

– Lauren Gahan – Thomas Jefferson University, 2015

“Within a few months following graduation I was given the opportunity to lead and design Camden’s Amazon HQ2 campus proposal for the nationwide sweepstakes. Being involved throughout the entire process of a large urban design project from creating the initial sketches to completing the final renderings was an amazing experience that echoed my studio years, both in terms of design process and intensity. “

– Ashton Amspacker – Pennsylvania State University 2017

“My time at EwingCole has been primarily focused on the reimagining of a collegiate squash facility. I was fortunate enough to start at the beginning of schematic design and will remain on the project through detailing and documentation, an invaluable experience. In addition to the professional benefits, working on the squash project has brought together two things I’m most passionate about – design and sports.”

– Katrina Healy – University of Pennsylvania 2017

“Collaborating on this New York hospital, and developing the project digitally was an opportunity to design a sophisticated building for a hospital that is trying to reimagine itself. We were excited to be part of a design team – planners, designers and project architects – that had a great mix of creative talent and high energy. The process of socializing creative ideas with the team was fun and open, but always informed and process oriented.”

Summer Internships

The Summer Internship program at EwingCole is fundamental to building a vibrant, design rich professional community. It is an opportunity for students to get to know us and for us to learn about them and, in several instances, it has served as the first step toward full-time work. Summer Internships provide a holistic understanding of the firm and allow students to work on a number of projects, often using their school based design skills.

One component of the summer internship at EwingCole during the summer of 2018 will be a collaborative urban, architecture, landscape design project. The project will be led by two full time professionals and will be supported by the design and planning principals in the office. The intern team will collectively present the design to the client and prepare the final materials in an exhibit format.

We both joined EwingCole because of the attention the firm dedicates to development of its interns as well as its openness to working through different media, ranging from hand sketches and physical models to more advanced digital modeling and fabrication. For us, model building is an essential process in visualizing architecture. In a recent competition for a building at West Point, we used Rhino 3D and a laser cutter in order to translate a complex design solution into a physical artifact that helped informed our design decisions.
