CBRE Build is an industry-leading product innovation group in the heart of CBRE, Earth’s biggest commercial real estate company. We have a diversity of backgrounds and skills: engineers, designers, managers, researchers, thinkers, jokesters, and do-gooders inventing the future of an enormous industry with a long, rich past. From just a few offices around the planet, we are changing the way people relate to the spaces that stage their lives.


We’re excited to offer a Product Management internship program in summer 2019, based in New York City.


During your PM internship, you’ll deep dive into technology’s growing role within commercial real estate, learning more about the products we build here and their impact on our users. You’ll then be embedded with one of our product teams, and fully own a product feature from inception to launch. As part of our user-centered product approach, you’ll develop a deep understanding of our users, define success metrics, prototype product ideas, validate them with users, and ultimately build and launch a product feature by the end of the summer.


Along with day-to-day mentorship from product managers, you’ll work alongside experienced product designers, software engineers, user experience researchers, and commercial real estate professionals.


What you’ll be doing this summer:

Working with a PM to define the strategic goals and success metrics for your product feature

Conducting user research to determine user unmet needs and validate product feature ideas, in partnership with user researchers

Working with designers, engineers, and other internal stakeholders to design and build technology products

Using product analytics and other data to inform your thinking and validate your product’s success

Defining and executing a product feature launch, including strategies for beta testing, product marketing, user adoption, and customer success

Coordinating across multiple disciplines at CBRE Build to ensure your product feature launches successfully, on time, and with high quality

About you

You have a passion for products and their impact on the world: we’re looking for someone who is deeply interested in the intersection of technology and business, with a knack for user empathy and a great sense of design

You’re pursuing a field aligned with product management: while PM isn’t a major yet, you should be a current Bachelors/Masters candidate in an engineering or business-related major, graduating in Fall 2019 or Spring 2020

You’re a quick learner and avid problem solver: you’re intellectually curious, are a sponge when it comes to new topics, processes, or technologies, and dig deep into problems to find viable solutions

You put collaboration first: you enjoy helping people around you do their best work, by enabling them with everything they need to succeed

You have excellent communication skills: you’re comfortable explaining complex topics to business executives or beta users, as much as you’re comfortable talking about user feedback or business needs to software engineers

A bonus: you have past tech industry internship experience in software engineering or product management

Why CBRE Build?

As a former real estate tech startup, CBRE Build gives you the best of both worlds – an opportunity to learn and grow with talented, experienced technologists (we’ve got alums from Google, Amazon, Microsoft, WeWork, and more), while tapping into the resources of a multi-billion dollar global leader in our space. The work you do here has the potential to change the face of the commercial real estate industry.



Some things we’re proud of:


A friendly, collaborative, and transparent work environment, where you can do your best work alongside some of the brightest, hardest-working, and friendliest people we could find


A serious commitment to diversity and inclusion, including a healthy gender representation across all teams at CBRE Build, and pronouns in Slack/email signatures


Free food throughout the week, including healthy (and less-than-healthy) options


Access to our machine shop, including a laser cutter, 3D printer, and coffee roaster - bring your side projects!


A thriving social atmosphere, with two book clubs, team sports (in the past, volleyball and bowling!), and board game nights
