Join the GPD Team

Be a Part of Something Different.

We believe work should be more than just a place you clock in and out. It should be a place where you feel free and empowered to grow. Where you always feel like you’re a part of something special.

At GPD, we are passionate about the work we do and the relationships we build. It’s why we look for people who share those same values to join our team. Our broad-based employee ownership structure eliminates the corporate ladder. Whether you’re an architect, engineer, designer or planner, we have open doors and plenty of opportunities to create your own unique career journey.

We believe work should be fun. We value laughter, coming together and celebrating with one another. Our company-sponsored outings range from professional sporting events to ski trips, and we encourage our employees to include their families because—like we said before—work is more than just a place you spend your day.

Our broad-based ownership structure is different than a traditional ESOP. It gives meaning to employee ownership by prioritizing the whole team over any one individual. Because everyone has a vested interest in the company, we all have a vested interest in success.
