Full Time
Culdesac's mission is to build cities for people, not cars. We're the first post-car real estate developer, and our goal is to build the first car-free city in the US. We're starting with the first car-free neighborhood built from scratch - that's Culdesac Tempe, a 1000-person neighborhood.

All of this draws from a core insight: the way we move defines the way we live. And the way we move is changing fast, with countless ways to get around today beyond private cars. Here's more.

As a Real Estate Development Fellow at Culdesac, you will be an integral part of developing our next set of car-free projects over a 6-9 month period. With our multi-disciplinary team, you will assist in the identification and analysis of potential locations and related outreach, design, and planning.

    • You will conduct national research and data analysis on potential sites for Culdesac's next set of projects.
    • You will review existing entitlements and regulatory processes and study relevant international and local codes for potential sites.
    • You will assist in the conceptual planning and design of potential projects.
    • You will assist with real estate finance pro formas and related real estate data collection and analysis.
    • You will assist in the creation of outreach slide decks.

How you will be successful:

    • You have a Bachelor's degree or currently pursuing a Master's degree in urban planning, real estate development, or a related field.
    • You prioritize a lifestyle leveraging public transportation, micro mobility, and other alternatives to private cars.
    • Strong domain knowledge is a prerequisite for this position; check back later for generalist positions
    • You are a driven, ambitious person with an innate sense of humility.
    • You excel in oral and written communication.
    • You are adept at data analysis.
    • You have experience with real estate financial modeling.
    • You are intrinsically motivated by quality work and collaboration.
    • You are excellent at giving and receiving constructive feedback, especially the hard-to-give variety.
    • You value a caring, supportive, and honest culture.
    • You are creative and data-driven.
