NVR – Why Work For Us?


Join the NVR team and help lead the homebuilding industry.

It's not work if you're never bored.

A career should be something you’re constantly building upon. That’s why, at NVR, you have the opportunity to train and work across different functions within the company. So you can expand your knowledge—and your career—through a variety of experiences. 

We're much more than hard hats and hammers.

There's a lot more to the homebuilding industry than building homes. Careers with NVR, Ryan Homes, NVHomes, and Heartland Homes cover a broad range of professions—and not all of them require working on a construction site. You can find pathways to growth and success with us in the following areas:

  • Accounting
  • Administration
  • Architecture/Design
  • Construction Management
  • Engineering
  • Finance
  • Human Resources
  • Information Technology
  • Land Acquisition
  • Legal
  • Marketing
  • Mortgage Banking
  • Production Management
  • Sales Management
  • Settlement Services

Are you NVR material?

The quality of our people is as high as the quality of our homes. Our employees come from all majors, backgrounds, and skill sets. What they all share is an innate drive to achieve. If you’re a bright, energetic individual who’s customer-focused and dedicated to the success of your team, we’d love to talk to you.

Training doesn't happen only in the classroom.

To learn our business inside and out, you have to spend some time "outside." That’s why, as an employee, you’ll periodically be out in the field with our regional trainers, learning first-hand how we build our homes, source our materials, work with suppliers, interact with our customers, and more. In addition to our interactive, hands-on training, we pair you with mentors who are eager to share their knowledge, provide guidance and help you be successful.



NVR, Inc. operates in two business segments: homebuilding and mortgage banking. The homebuilding unit sells and constructs homes under the Ryan Homes, NVHomes, and Heartland Homes. As a corporate entity, NVR, Inc. provides various support functions for each of its sub-entities. These include sales and marketing support, vital human resource specialists, and an advanced information technology department, which provide a network of resources utilized by NVR, Inc. holdings.


undefinedNVR homebuilding operations serve 31 metropolitan areas in fourteen states, including Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida and Tennessee, as well as Washington D.C.

Founded in 1948 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to provide housing in the expanding post-war economy, Ryan Homes has constructed more than 430,000 homes. Today, Ryan Homes offers housing styles to suit a wide range of consumers needs, including single-family, townhouse or garden condominium.

NVHomes offers additional architectural details and designer elements tailored to suit the most discriminating of tastes. Established in 1980, NVHomes has earned a reputation for luxury, quality and value throughout its communities in Virginia, Maryland, Delaware and Pennsylvania.

Heartland Homes was created in 1984 to offer luxury homes of the highest quality at an affordable price. Since then, Heartland has built over 3,000 homes in western Pennsylvania by combining personalization with a customer-friendly experience that keeps it simple. Heartland offers single family, townhome, and villa style homes to match the way you want to live.

Our Building Products operation supports the construction operations with manufacturing facilities in Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio and Tennessee. Building Products supplies structural building components, produced to exacting standards in a controlled environment and then delivered to the job site, to reduce waste and improve efficiency.

Mortgage Banking

NVR Mortgage is headquartered in Reston, Virginia and operates branches in the metropolitan areas in which NVR has homebuilding operations. NVR Mortgage’s primary focus is to serve the needs of NVR homebuyers. NVR Settlement Services, also headquartered in Reston, VA, provides a complete range of settlement and title services to support NVR’s homebuilding operations.

Trust and support is the framework of our culture.

In numerous surveys and reviews, our employees tell us we're an exceptional place to work. Here are a few of the reasons why:

  • Career paths with promotional and professional development opportunities
  • Teamwork, respect among fellow employees
  • Empowered, autonomous work culture
  • High degree of responsibility, even in early employment
  • Company culture based on consistent training for new hires and professionals

    Former Employee - Lead Framer Truss in Dayton, OH
    Positive Outlook

    I worked at NVR full-time (More than 3 years)


    Fast growth. Great place for any skilled framer to thrive. Grew from temp to hire to full time lead framer within 2 years. Acknowlegment and appraisals for great achievements for going above and beyond.


    As housing designs changed and became more difficult and timely to build the production goals still grew. Really brought employees down when goals were rarely being met due to the virtually impossible rate and increasing difficulty.

    Advice to Management

    It cost more time and money to hire and train non skilled non experienced framers than it does having one less member of the team. Need to be more patient with who they bring in. Pay is high enough to entice quality framers.

    Mortgage Operation Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Beltsville, MD
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience


    TERRIBLE. A recruiter from National Mortgage Staffing, whose name I will not mention, has treated me with the utmost lack of respect and even called my current employer to remind me of a telephone interview. This is awful and I do not know what to do.
