Everything we do begins with teamwork.
Not only is it the foundation of how we work with clients, it’s the inspiration behind how we work with one another. We make room for every voice to be heard and we encourage peer-to-peer accountability. We are a culture where every individual’s contribution is valued every day. We approach every project as a passion project. We want our clients, partners and ourselves to feel inspired throughout the construction journey and thrilled by the results.
The Skender experience is dynamic, high-energy, and propelled by a hunger to improve our process.
That’s why we’re committed to providing our employees with continuous learning and ongoing coaching without micromanaging. We place a high premium on confidence without arrogance, understanding that the best ideas come from an open environment with approachable leaders. Everyone contributes and everyone works to support their teammates.
We strive to deepen our cultural values to ensure that we’re ideally positioned to meet our business goals. Every member of our team leads by example and values one another—creating an infectious and prized culture. The experience we provide our clients is possible because of what we’ve created among ourselves. We’re innovators, collaborators, true partners and firm believers that the building journey should be fun.
That’s what sets us apart. And that’s what gives our purpose meaning. Join our team
Skender is built on relationships.
That commitment starts within our own walls, where we’ve created an environment guided by our core values.
Our team is equipped to solve problems proactively and no voice is too small to be heard. We foster a collaborative atmosphere, prioritizing effective communication—setting us up to be true partners to clients and peers.
Skender’s leadership empowers each member of our team to think big and speak freely. We want our employees to thrive, which is why we offer best-in-class benefits, robust onboarding and professional development, along with growth potential and space for a healthy work-life balance.
Our dedication is reflected in the work our team produces and in the spirit they bring to our offices every day.
It’s one of the reasons we’ve been the recipient of multiple “Best Place to Work” awards—from organizations such as the National Association of Business Resources and publications like Crain’s Chicago Business and the Daily Herald Business Ledger.
We’re always in search of great talent—individuals who want a meaningful and refreshing work environment in which to have a career, not just a job. Because at Skender, we build things that matter and things that last.
