“Up-and-coming engineers, architects and project managers can have immediately challenging and fulfilling careers at DDC, where they are given critical responsibilities to develop and guide multi-million-dollar projects from inception to completion, projects that impact tens of thousands of New Yorkers at a time,” said NYC Department of Design and Construction (DDC) Commissioner Thomas Foley.

Civil engineers at DDC have opportunities in several critical areas including project development, design, drafting, specifications, estimating, construction and inspection. Candidates must have a baccalaureate degree in civil engineering from an accredited college or university.

DDC project managers coordinate public projects from conception through design and construction and follow them all the way through to full completion. Project Manager candidates must have either a baccalaureate degree in engineering, architecture, landscape architecture, business administration, or public administration from an accredited college or university or a master’s degree in architecture from an accredited college or university.

“These are front-line positions responsible for getting stuff done,” continued Commissioner Foley. “People in these positions will have opportunities for immediate responsibility and career growth unique to the public sector. What’s more, we support our staff at every step of their careers, and in return they build the city for eight million New Yorkers.”

DDC builds the city’s essential infrastructure from water mains to coastal resiliency programs, as well as public buildings from firehouses to health clinics. DDC employees are eligible for civil service appointments and receive full benefits as employees of the City of New York.
