    Now Hiring: Full-Time Designer

    5th Avenue Construction is boutique custom homebuilder that
    caters to the southwest suburbs of Chicago with our current focus being in
    Lemont and Naperville. We specialize in both the development of communities, in
    addition to custom tear downs. Building a home can be very involved and
    stressful for buyers so our dedicated team delivers a hands on, educational
    approach with the goal being transparency above all else. Our clients consist
    of home buyers looking to build new construction and existing homeowners who
    seek renovation projects.

    With 30 years of experience in the business, we can offer
    invaluable knowledge into the construction process from ideation to
    construction to completion. Today, 5th Avenue has a need for an in house designer
    to join our team! The ideal candidate for this role has an acute attention to
    detail, great project management skills, and a strong sense of design.
    Successful candidates are autonomous, creative, organized, and appreciate
    consistency of routine.

    This year, we will be making a move to establish a footprint
    in Florida. This will require candidate to travel once-twice a month out of
    state to assess project status and opportunities with 5th Ave team.

    We want someone who is driven to succeed and eager to learn
    the ins and outs of new construction. This role requires project management at
    various stages through the design and construction process. Most importantly,
    candidates must have a collaborative attitude and work well with our team to
    achieve unparalleled client satisfaction. It won’t hurt to have a sense of
    humor and to be able to hold your own.
