At Trunk Tools, we are tackling the massive $13 trillion+ construction industry. We’re an exceptional team of serial entrepreneurs, brought together by our shared mission: automating construction. Our founding team (SpaceX, Stanford, MIT, Carta, etc.) has successfully built and deployed software in construction for 140k+ users, millions of users beyond the construction space, and worked on +$2 billion of built-environment projects. We aren’t another out-of-touch tech startup, most of our team comes from construction.

We spent the last few years building the brain behind construction. Now we are deploying workflows/ agents, starting with Q&A document chatbot, to be ingrained in construction teams’ workflows, ultimately to automate construction. Given our immense traction with several Fortune 500 construction companies, we are doubling our team in order to deploy several more agents this year. You will have an opportunity to drive the transformation of a multi-trillion-dollar industry full of waste, risks and inefficiencies.

What you will do and achieve:

  • Develop and Optimize Data Pipelines: Design, construct, install, test, and maintain highly scalable data management systems.

  • Expand Parsing Capabilities: Take the initiative to constantly expand the range of file and content types our systems can parse using Vision models, ML, OCR, and more to maximize data capture.

  • Leverage LLMs for Data Structuring: Explore and implement the use of Large Language Models (LLMs) to convert unstructured data into structured formats, improving data usability and accessibility.

  • Develop Business Logic for Data Routing: Build and optimize business logic for the routing of document and content types to the most effective parsing solutions, including the development of retry logic and error handling procedures to ensure robust data handling.

  • Collaborate with Product Teams: Work closely with product teams to experiment with and implement advanced parsing solutions and techniques, ensuring our products meet the high standards our clients expect.

Who you are:

  • BA/BS in computer science or related degree. Bonus points for a graduate degree.

  • 5+ years of experience

  • Possess extensive experience in data parsing, including working with various file types and formats, and have a deep understanding of the technical challenges involved.
