We actively believe that entry into—and longevity in—architecture must be accessible to all.

Modellus Novus is committed to increasing access to the field of architecture to people from different backgrounds, perspectives and geographies. We pay fair wages, create a work environment and culture that prioritizes support through management, development and training, and are open to candidates who do not have the classic architecture background or come from the same handful of noted architecture schools.

We care deeply about our team. They are not overworked, underpaid nor underappreciated. We commit to a business model and ethics that are fair, laying the groundwork to address economic parity and quality of life.

We have no unpaid or underpaid positions—inclusive of interns brought in while still completing academic studies—and our pay scale calculator allows us to base all compensation on measurable and objective data to protect against pay discrimination based on gender, race, or other protected factors.

These commitments make for better client relationships, better teams and better work. The firm has had nearly no turnover in its eight years.

If you are interested in reshaping excellence in architecture and would like to join us for a role not specified below, please send your resume and cover letter to We will respond if there is an opportunity.
