Chango & Co is seeking a junior architectural designer to join its growing team in New York.

We’re looking for an experienced junior architectural designer to join our growing team of designers. Chango & Co is a full-service residential design studio. Our definition of full-service is providing our clients with a highly capable, exceptionally talented, and detail-obsessed team of experts to manage every aspect of a project, allowing our clients to focus on the creative and enjoyable elements of the process without being overwhelmed by it.

We design, build and deliver move-in-ready homes that have been thoughtfully designed inside and out. We don’t work in the commercial or hospitality fields or handle construction projects that don’t include a comprehensive interior design scope. We focus on residential construction and interior design projects because we love working with families, creating personalized spaces for each member, and completely transforming their houses into warm & inviting homes that are a joy to live in.
