I’m Betti, architect
I am an architect who started my career at BuildEXT.
“What I like about BuildEXT is that it is safe, stable and that they listen to me. I’ve got the trajectory that I felt was right for me.”

We are listening to you
BuildEXT is special because we listen to you and we know what it’s like
to look for a job after graduating with a degree in architecture, while you may still have many unanswered questions.
Do you still lack knowledge?
The university provides you with a lot of theoretical knowledge, but you can only learn the basics of Reviting, for example. You learn only a fraction about the BIM way of working and very little about building a self-aware career.
Looking for practical knowledge?
Training is expensive and time-consuming. Would you rather work and learn at the same time, but in practice? Or have you been working for a few months but feel stuck? These are solvable problems!
Afraid of being left behind?
If you see new technology coming out every day, but don’t know how to keep up with it all, an innovative team can help you a lot.
Is it difficult to see through everything?
You’re developing yourself, but in every video and article it’s almost the same and it’s hard to put the pieces together? At the end of the day, is the picture still incomplete? Our skilled and experienced staff will be happy to help you!
When you join as a newly graduated architect
You’ll have a mentor
First, you will have a mentor who will be with you from the first hour of the first day. He introduces you to people, shows you around, gets you a machine, a mug, a desk, introduces you to the coffee machine and talks to you about the company and what’s in store for you as a budding architect.
What’s your status?
So we get to know you better, assess your knowledge, your goals. What software you’ve used, what you’re good at, how well you know Revit, what you’d like to improve on, what interests you.
You’ll complete a professional, hands-on Revites training course, which will give you a very good foundation to get started.
This takes three months. In the meantime, you’ll improve a lot in all aspects and you’ll fit in with the team. Of course you can ask anyone, we’re here to support you! Our goal, like yours, is for you to move confidently in the design environment.
Let’s do it!
Your probationary period is over! You’re familiar with the concepts, our workflows, Revit, projects, others and most importantly, yourself. From now on, you will be on a live project and become an integral part of the team.
This is how we work
The office is split into three teams.
Some mainly deal with large, complex industrial facilities, logistics halls, laboratories.
Others work on public buildings or interior design.
But one thing is common: all teams benefit from the BIM methodology.
“The full use of BIM significantly reduces the environmental impact of the construction industry.
We are serious about protecting the future generation!”
Csaba Livják, founder and CEO of BuildEXT

Have a look around the market!
Working at BuildEXT is an investment for you and for us. We want you to work for us, but only if you do. As a budding architect, you should read this article before applying. It will help you find out which architectural firms to choose from.
You’d ask anyway, so we’ll beat you to it…
Do I have to work during the training?
Yes, but we’ll take your current skills into account and you’ll get a job based on them.
What if there is no position for you?
You can still apply. And even if the position sounds scary at first. Your attitude is more important than your technical skills. If you have the drive and the self-esteem, we can teach you the details.
Can I still study in the meantime?
We will discuss this. There are examples now, but it doesn’t matter what kind of training we are talking about and how long it takes.
Do you have a home office?
We have, we work in hybrid mode, we tried it, it worked. Of course, there are times when you have to come in, because the project is at that stage. But those are the best days, really.
Will I be registered?
Of course! And a word of advice: don’t go to work in a place that tricks you into doing this, because sooner or later you’re bound to get it wrong.
How much do I need to know about Revit?
We’re happy if you’re in the know, we’ll teach you if you’re not. Don’t worry, we won’t select you for the team based on your current skills.
Struggling with your first CV?
If you feel like you have nothing to put on your CV as a budding architect, you might legitimately ask: how do you get it ready to get hired? Don’t sweat it, read this guide – trust me, you’ll be relieved and you’ll be able to put together a kick-ass CV yourself!
Great, then please send a CV
and a cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have a portfolio, don’t forget it.
I still have questions!
Go ahead, ask Abris, he has all the answers!
