Pre-Series A

Avvir is out to change the way we interact with the built environment. We create and continuously update a digital replica of buildings that serve as the building's system of record. We do this by comparing the 3D design models (known as BIMs) that are created at the outset of a building's construction to laser scans of the ever changing reality. During construction this enables stakeholders to identify construction errors and monitor progress in real time. And once a building is occupied, we enable that digital twin to serve as a platform for the internet of things, integrating data from hundreds of connected sensors in a common data environment.

Active Roles
Why join us?
  • In less than 12 months we've gone from no product to working with companies like Facebook and Exxon Mobil.

  • We just raised $2.5m in seed capital and are on track to raise a series A within the next 6 months.

  • Our current customers love us. We have an over 90% retention rate.

Engineering team and processes

We work in a hybrid agile methodology. There are no sprints but each week we plan a set of stories and we pick the next one to work on from the top of the list. We keep stories small and acceptance criteria clear so we can better manage and understand risks. We test-drive our code so that it’s easy to understand and change. We pair up about 20 hours/week to facilitate learning, to write better code, and to reduce knowledge siloing. We work closely with the design and product management team to make sure we are building the right thing. We are also always working on improving the way that we work, and every week we have a retrospective to reflect and consider ways we could be doing things better.

Technical Challenges

We process and organize complex data about building designs, and combine it with data that captures the reality on the ground. We do that so we can create reliable, useful reporting tools for our customers. We are building a computer vision algorithm that has to parse tens of gigabytes of point cloud data in minutes, and compare it to gigabytes of building design data. We're solving tough UX problems as we find the most effective ways to ingest and present information about a 3D space that's changing over time.

Projects you might work on
  • Build out full-stack workflows for users to analyze and understand their construction projects.

  • Process and organize complex data about building designs, construction schedules, and material and labor costs.

  • Build interactive tools for engaging with data overlaid on a 3D model.

  • Work on deep integrations with some of the most critical construction management software tools to help us pull in and push out the right data to the right stakeholders.

  • Optimize performance of massive 2D and 3D data visualizations.

  • Build out a dashboard to help users predict timelines for their large construction projects.

Working at Avvir

We're still a pretty small team working on defining our values but we believe the following: We believe your job should enrich your life, not take it over. We believe in working smart over working hard (though hard work isn’t bad.) We believe you can only be truly successful when you are fulfilled and empowered; your work should fulfill you and colleagues should empower one another. And we believe in being decent, to one another, and in general.

Generous Vacation

Avvir has a 5-week vacation policy with unlimited sick days. We trust you. Really.

Beautiful Office

We're headquartered in the new Urban Future Lab ACRE incubator space located in downtown Brooklyn.

Flexible Hours

We believe in putting our personal lives first. We have core hours from 10:00-4:00 where we expect people to be available for meetings and pairing, but otherwise, we care about what you get done and not how much face time you show.

Work from Home

Our team is semi-distributed. We like our engineering team in NYC to come into the office as frequently as they can but most of our engineers work at least one day a week from home.

Health Insurance

We offer very competitive health insurance plans with Avvir covering 70% of the monthly premium.
