What if you could use your technology skills to develop a product that impacts the way communities’ hospitals, homes, sports stadiums, and schools across the world are built? Construction impacts the lives of nearly everyone in the world, and yet it’s also one of the world’s least digitized industries. That’s why we’re looking for engineering talent​ to join Procore’s journey to revolutionize a historically underserved industry.

We are seeking a dynamic and experienced senior technical leader to lead our talented engineering teams and drive the successful delivery of high-quality software solutions.

    • Build, maintain, and develop a wide series of microservices and are looking for engineers adept at discovering new opportunities and driving them to completion.

  • Work side-by-side with Product and UX teams to build out roadmaps and drive execution for development of file and document services.

  • Champion best practices in software development, ensuring adherence to coding standards, scalability, and security.

What we're looking for:

  • BS or MS degree in Computer Science, related discipline, or equivalent experience

  • 10+ years of combined experience as a Software Engineer with an emphasis on building scalable backend web-based services and related infrastructure

  • Experience working within and leading through influence on global technical teams

  • Ability to evaluate current technical approaches and champion industry best-of-class technology approaches to solving technical problems

  • Demonstrated experience leading/contributing to a large engineering initiative or large technology change

  • Experience working collaboratively with teams, providing mentorship and guidance to improve the overall reliability of the ecosystem

  • Understanding the tradeoffs between short-term and long-term goals and balancing immediate needs with strategic initiatives

  • Experience in the following technologies, with demonstrated expertise and the capacity to lead complex technical initiatives in architecture and design systems:
