Overview

Federal Realty Investment Trust is a  publicly traded company that is a proven leader in the ownership, operation, and redevelopment of high quality retail real estate in the country’s best markets. We believe we are one of the most innovative and dynamic real estate companies you can work for. Candidates who research Federal Realty hear a lot about the high quality shopping centers, urban lifestyle centers and residential products. We have a well-respected real estate team at our core but it's the smaller intangible things that can make working at Federal so satisfying.  You see, while we're one of the largest publicly traded real estate investment trusts in the country, as measured by the value of our shopping centers, we're really a very small company by most standards and we try to operate that way. Our stability and success is due to our great team of employees! Would you like to join our team? If so, learn more about our current opportunity below.
