Are you looking to find a life-long company where you can create your own path? 

Lutron is hiring recent college graduates to support our Commercial Project Business. This position starts with a one-year rotational onboarding experience that will introduce you to concepts in construction management.  This includes reading and creating construction drawings, estimating, working within construction project management, and commissioning systems in the field. Our goal is to find creative, detail-oriented people who want to design and manage commercial projects. We want people who enjoy working in a fast paced, collaborative environment that provides opportunities to try many different roles. 


We want to change the way people experience buildings. 

Although you may never think about controlling light, would you want to watch a movie in a bright room? Have you experienced bad lighting on a video call? People are more productive, feel more comfortable, and are generally happier under the right light.  


Lutron Electronics, the inventor of the dimmer, innovates beautifully designed solutions for residential and commercial applications. Our lighting controls and automated shades are installed in Fortune 100 companies, universities, sport stadiums and residences all over the world.  


What you’re going to do:

  • Learn the construction process: design, budgeting, scheduling, execution, and owner turnover 

  • Develop skills in reading construction drawings, creating designs, and programming systems 

  • Communicate with architects, engineers, contractors, and Lutron sales team members to support Lutron’s business goals

  • Build personal relationships with senior leadership in Lutron’s Commercial Project business

  • Complete training and join one of our commercial projects and service teams 


  • Specification Services (Pre-sales): Create preliminary designs for domestic and international new construction projects. 

  • Estimating Lighting Controls (Pre-sales): Strategically price lighting control projects and create bid documents to win jobs.

  • Estimating Automated Shades (Pre-sales): Strategically price automated shading projects and create bid documents to win jobs.

  • Commercial Project Management (Post-sales): Work alongside experienced project managers to better understand the commercial job process.

  • Field Service (Post-sales): Travel to commercial job sites to program lighting and shading systems. Work involves climbing ladders, working in unfinished construction conditions, and walking and standing for long periods of time. Overnight travel is required. 

Your impact:  

  • Directly contribute to company growth and success by taking care of the customer

  • Uphold our position as the industry leader with your proactive communication, product knowledge and problem-solving skills

  • Drive innovation and challenge the status quo through your self-motivation, adaptability, and resiliency
