SMMA is seeking an experienced Project Manager, Architect, or Engineer to join SMMA’s Project Management department. We are an integrated design firm that unites a dynamic mix of architects, engineers, technologists, researchers, and industry experts driven to provide responsible, well-crafted, and venturesome design solutions to clients in the Boston area and beyond. United by a common purpose, we thrive on cross-discipline collaboration and welcome good ideas from wherever they come.
