Gettys ONE – Designer I

Position Summary


In 2012, a development group approached The Gettys Group with a proposal for a new kind of engagement: to leverage our hotel design agency’s expertise, high-level industry relationships, and talent for creating differentiation through design for the fast-growing select-service hotel sector.

Over the next year, we carefully adapted our design, approval and documentation processes to deliver the time and budgetary efficiencies demanded by select-service hotel development, creating an entirely new breed of design offering for the sector: consultative, professional, expert.

Since then, our unmatched experience has earned us the respect of the sector’s best-known brands and most successful developers, who have turned to us for hundreds of projects across the country over the past five years.

With guidance, the Designer I with our Gettys ONE studio performs in a self-directed manner all aspects of the Interior Design process including preparation of materials, schematic design, design development, contract documentation, and construction of administration activities within an established budget with specific scheduling, site and programmatic requirements. A Designer I supports parts of or an entire project depending on scope in conjunction with team leadership.
