We build cities for people, not cars.
Culdesac's mission is to build cities for people, not cars. We're the first post-car real estate developer, and our goal is to build the first car-free city in the US. We're starting with the first car-free neighborhood built from scratch - that's Culdesac Tempe, a 1000-person neighborhood.
All of this draws from a core insight: the way we move defines the way we live. And the way we move is changing fast, with countless ways to get around today beyond private cars. Here's more.
As part of External Affairs at Culdesac, you will be an integral part of our team. This is a cross-functional, multi-disciplinary role - through all aspects of project planning, from stakeholder mapping to engagement. Through improved bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure, supporting local retail, and connecting with community groups, our work focuses on quality of life, economic development, safety, social inclusion, and sustainability.
Our Internships are designed to be interactive and hands-on, contributing to Culdesac’s ongoing external strategies and creating new opportunities for community building. Our goal is to empower interns to add to their skillsets, expand their working knowledge, and prepare them for a success in their future careers.

Our cities should be celebrated. They have been the largest driver of innovation in human history. But somewhere along the way, things broke and our quality of life suffered. We built our lives around our cars as cookie-cutter housing popped up around the country. Sprawl became commonplace, and we normalized hour-long commutes, even as private vehicle ownership became the largest source of carbon emission pollution. We became more isolated and felt less connected to each other. It doesn't have to be this way.
We're building cities for people, not cars. Our team blends technology, real estate, and culture to reimagine our daily lives. We come from different backgrounds to bring a fresh perspective on what's possible. As a team, we keep a pulse on our community and what they need. We ride our e-bikes to lunch, host pop-ups on construction sites and make 16-acre cornstarch art pieces. We cultivate these relationships and bring our community closer together so they can experience the neighborhood they deserve.
