We help buildings tell their stories. We want to hear yours.
Hopefully, you will find an opening that suits your independent spirit. But if you don’t see one that’s big enough for your ambition, feel free to send us a note along with your resume. We’ll see if we’re a match.
We believe in creating a positive, engaging and communicative culture, which provides a solid foundation for enterprise longevity and success. Culture will morph, and you can either let it happen or you can influence how it happens. We foster influencers.”

Diversity & Mentorship
As a successful women-owned business enterprise for over 30 years, Cerami is an advocate for promoting mentorship and diversity in business. Our firm consists of 25% women and we are committed to the advancement of women, especially in the field of design.
In keeping with our mission, our firm and team members are dedicated supporters of mentorship programs, such as The Salvadori Center, Non-Traditional Employment for Women (NEW), and The ACE Mentor Program.
ACE is a not-for-proﬁt organization serving high school youth who are exploring careers in Architecture, Construction or Engineering. Cerami mentors, and professionals from leading design and construction ﬁrms, volunteer their time weekly throughout the school year for a deep dive into industry principles. The program concludes with a student design competition and scholarship awards.
The Vito V. Cerami Scholarship
The “Vito V. Cerami Scholarship” is named in honor of our founder, a first generation Italian-American who brought acoustics into the practical world of building design. The scholarship is awarded to a female student that exemplifies a tenacity to learn, dedicated to helping others, and is pursuing a degree in mechanical engineering.
Cerami hosts a summer-long internship program for our acoustical design and technology consulting studios. Cerami interns learn basic principles of their respective discipline, are immersed in diverse, real-world projects and gain great exposure to the working environment.
Cerami blends the technical aspects of acoustical engineering while keeping in mind the aesthetic design of each project. This experience has opened my eyes to a new world of work. I will be keeping Cerami at the top of my list when thinking about my future career.”
