Careers at DSGW

There are jobs – and then there are careers.  We want to hire talent – and then keep them.  We’ve been successful for over 80 years because we hire and invest in the best. We give our employees the chance to do the kind of work that becomes something meaningful. Advance your skills and challenge yourself, at DSGW, we foster the drive to pursue the best version of you.

Why Work for DSGW?

We offer more than just amazing benefits 

We offer competitive compensation packages and paid time off that we insist you take. Unplug and re-charge. Health, dental, long and short term disability and a 401 K contribution – regardless if the employee contributes.

Firm values drive our mission to build better communities every day.



We respect the wisdom in the communities we serve. We honor the diverse cultures of those who will inhabit the spaces we create. Leveraging community knowledge and working with humility drives the intentional design.



We listen before we plan. We understand before we design. We connect before we create. And when we don’t have every thing we need in-house, we go to one of our external experts to enhance our team. We’re our clients’ partners and we believe in exceptional work.



We treat sustainability as a standard, not an afterthought. It doesn’t end with certifications – it ends when we’ve responsibly designed and built an environment that is healthy for the Earth, respectful to the land and healthy for its occupants. As stewards of the natural environment, we believe that all that is built well, ends well.
