Carmel Partners – Why Work For Us?

At Carmel Partners, we are entrepreneurs and multifamily real estate experts.

Since our founding in 1996, Carmel has been focused on sustaining a culture committed to the principles of responsibility, integrity and alignment of interests.

Vertically Integrated Platform
Our vertically integrated platform is critical to our success. It informs our decisions at every point of the development process. It allows us to deliver well-crafted multifamily properties with vision, focus and precision.

Our investment platform includes dedicated in-house teams of skilled professionals that work collaboratively to integrate the knowledge and insight needed to consistently execute our value creation strategies.

We believe our ability to control the process from deployment of capital to building assets with our own construction management sets us apart. Our collaborative approach integrates resources from all of Carmel’s in-house teams, including:

  • Investments
  • Development & Development Execution
  • Construction
  • Asset Management
  • Marketing
  • Project Finance
  • Accounting & Compliance
  • Financial Planning & Analysis
  • Investor Relations

Benefits play a key role in your choice of employer. Our portfolio of health benefits, wellness programs, and services is designed to ensure that our valued associates are healthy and comfortable, while encouraging unburdened and expansive thinking inside and outside the office.

In addition to a competitive offering of health, time off benefits, and paid parental leave, Carmel’s Wellness Program supports associates’ well-being through office events, gym discounts, and collaborative activities, both on and offsite. 


All companies say their employees are the key ingredient to success. But not every company embraces the creativity and drive that some unique individuals possess. Carmel is different. We welcome the diverse, the passionate, the ones who are up to the challenge. That’s why we could be just the place for you.

Visionaries who are changing the landscape

At Carmel, you’ll stand out by bringing everything you have, creatively and analytically, to contribute to Carmel’s legacy and build your career. Our ongoing success depends on the skills, energy, and commitment you and your team provide.

Our organization is entrepreneurial and growth-oriented. You will be supported and mentored to bring out your best.

As transparency is one of our core beliefs, you will know where you stand, which we believe is a measure of respect. Our goal is to inspire you to create extraordinary results. The bar is set high. You can raise it higher.

Together, we are visionaries who are changing the landscape. You’ve chosen a great time to join us.

    I worked at Carmel Partners full-time


    LOVED working with senior management team. Felt encouraged, supported, seen. There was always a microscope on the projects I worked on, as they were high profile, and I felt like we got the support we needed to succeed.


    Some poor on-site management hires.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Carmel Partners (San Francisco, CA) in January 2017.


    I applied on LinkedIn. I then received a phone call from HR for a standard vetting phone call. I was then invited in for an interview where I met with an associate on the Capital Finance team. A few weeks later I was interviewed by the entire team.
