Role Description

About the Role:

We’re looking for Backend Engineers for our team. From Hudson Yards to Levi’s Stadium, our customers build some of the most amazing construction projects on the planet. PlanGrid is spearheading the industry’s transformation to the cloud and digitization by arming construction workers with the best productivity tools. You’ll work with top-tier design and QA teams to build flexible solutions that allow customers to manage their data throughout the lifecycle of their construction projects.

We are looking for people with a track record of success when working on deeply technical problems. We recognize that diversity is a critical part of being an innovative company—diverse perspectives and different backgrounds are the key ingredients to building the best products.

We are open to remote engineers About You: Proficient in at least one programming language (Python, Java, C, etc.) Have a technical undergraduate degree or higher (CS, Math, Engineering, etc.) Have a strong grasp of Computer Science fundamentals (data structures, theory basics, etc.) Feel at home using a *nix shell and common system utilities (ssh, grep, xargs, tail, ps, etc.) Ideally, candidates will also have experience with: REST API and library design Database design and optimization Asynchronous processing and infrastructure Advanced image processing/optimization Performance analysis across distributed systems Refactoring and re-architecting to support new models and paradigms The ideal teammate has: A strong sense of ownership: You strive for deep understanding, build the appropriate solution to get the job done, and iterate quickly to deliver high impact results. Pride over everything you ship: You would never release code until you’re confident it provides real value to customers. Love for building elegant, maintainable code: Abstracting and refactoring should be a passion, not a chore. Customer empathy: You have a high degree of customer empathy and drive to understand users’ pain points. You strive to frame problems using the best conceptual models. A team mentality: You recognize that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, appreciate collaboration, and play a key role to make the company win. Pragmatism: You consider the many tradeoffs — business, technical, UX, speed, accuracy, complexity — in every decision.
