O que esperar do nosso programa LED?

Design and build in Brazil.

Our full-service Brazil office has already worked on many exciting projects, from new lines and expansions to large-scale greenfields producing consumer favorites like beer, spirits, energy drinks, chocolate, candies, and ice cream.

Keep growing.

We aren’t just looking for candidates with a solid technical background: your ability and enthusiasm to learn and evolve is just as important. Deepen your understanding of your discipline or learn something new through professional development and cross-discipline teamwork.

On-site and in the office.

Project assignments vary depending on Dennis Group's project portfolio and trainee disciplines, but always involve both multi-disciplinary in-office design experience and the firsthand, boots-on-the-ground work on a job site.
