Development Associate

Who We Are:

We are a growing, best in class team of real estate entrepreneurs. At DLC, we strongly believe in Entrepreneurial Citizenship.  You are here to succeed, but you also know that the greatest rewards demand that every teammate works together to help one another succeed.  Your role is critical, as are those of your teammates, but we will all accomplish far more helping each other as a team than acting as individuals. We are looking for new teammates who are:

  • Genuine - You are self-confident, but you don’t have an ego. You act with integrity, and you treat everyone around you with respect.  You celebrate your team’s collective wins over your own, and you recognize the contributions and successes of your teammates.
  • Agile - You move quickly, easily, and flexibly in response to changing situations and the needs of your clients and teammates. When a situation can be improved, you are first in line to facilitate the needed changes.
  • Curious - You are innately curious with a strong desire to learn and know. You always take the time to ask thoughtful questions because you constantly want to achieve more.
  • Resilient - You overcome and quickly bounce back from setbacks. You help your teammates get back on track when they are knocked down, and you learn from and welcome similar help from those around you.
  • Unstoppable – You welcome challenges, and you do not give up when a situation looks bleak or unsolvable. You know there are critical times when the only way to achieve optimal results is by committing to and taking the necessary extra steps.

About DLC:

Founded in 1991, DLC has been one of the nation’s preeminent owners, operators and managers of shopping centers. Our portfolio includes millions of square feet of attractive retail space and continues to expand as we complete additional acquisitions.

Human Capital is our main focus and our teammates are the single most important asset to the Company since we know it’s the people who make the difference. DLC Management Corp. has been proudly certified a Great Place to Work. This designation, which we earned 5 years in a row, was granted based on teammate feedback and places us in an elite tier above the average workplace.

About The Role:

The Development Associate is an instrumental part of the New Development team and will work closely with the SVP of Development, Director of Development, and the entire team.

This is a unique opportunity that will allow you to learn all aspects of the business and give you exposure to teammates and clients at all levels of the organization. You will be involved in preparing for and leading monthly update meetings with the C-Suite and Executive Management team; provide administrative support to the department (scheduling meetings both internally and externally, preparing client presentations, preparing excel proformas/models, etc.); and work on ad-hoc projects in collaboration with teammates in various departments across the organization.

The New Development team is quickly growing with the number of tenants we are working with and sites we have in our pipeline. As a key role on the New Development team, you will take initiative by meeting with brokers to source new sites, collaborate with engineers and land use attorneys to entitle sites, and negotiate lease terms with tenants to move projects forward. As our pipeline grows, the opportunity for you to be promoted and take on more responsibility within the organization solidifies. Additionally, future projects will create additional staffing requirements, where the Development Associate will be able to step into a management role.

What You’ll Need:

  • Minimum of 1 year of full-time experience in a corporate setting
  • High proficiency in Microsoft Suite (Excel, Power Point, Word and Outlook)
  • Superior written and verbal communication skills and the ability to work effectively with individuals at all levels of the company
  • Willingness to take initiative and complete projects independently in a timely fashion without excessive oversight
  • Outstanding work ethic and attention to detail
  • Strong interpersonal skills
  • Strong interest in real estate
  • Bachelor’s degree
