Senior Full-Stack Software Engineer

Full Time
Los Angeles

What we do:

BuildOps is a well-funded technology startup that is developing an innovative SaaS platform designed to dramatically improve the lives of commercial contractors. We will be leveraging the latest technology, along with data analytics, to completely transform a $30 billion industry that is still mostly stuck using pen and paper.

Our co-founders have over a decade of experience in both construction and SaaS technology, as well as a resume that includes Stanford, Harvard, Wharton, Cornell, Microsoft, and multiple successful startup exits, including a $1.2 billion acquisition.

BuildOps has raised multiple rounds of funding from some of the largest and most reputable Venture Capital firms, including Founders Fund, Fika Ventures, and Greenspring Associates.

Who we are looking for:

You will be joining our LA-based software engineering team. As a pioneering member of the team, your primary focus will be to help build the product from the ground up. We are looking for a motivated, self-starter who can work in a distributed team environment. This is a hands-on role. The day-to-day responsibilities are broad, and you will ultimately be responsible for shipping software.

As a Senior Full-Stack Software Engineer, you will:

  • Write quality code with 80%+ code coverage, and thoroughly documented.
  • Develop, support, and improve our GraphQL API.
  • Build and maintain real-time, event-driven systems, services, and features.
  • Create new components and improve existing components in our React Native component library.
  • Teach and enforce documentation standards.
  • Propose recommendations, build prototypes, and provide feedback.
  • Work with the QA engineering team.
  • Own the short- and long-term technical visions of your squad.
  • Be responsible for all major technical decisions for your squad and be able to influence the decisions of your team without having to make all of them.
  • Provide technical mentorship and guidance to engineers within your team and others.
  • Help improve the technical quality of our work through regular technical design and code reviews.
  • Share your technical knowledge and expertise.
  • Communicate effectively with engineers, product managers, customers, partners, and other leaders.

Requirements to be successful in this role:

  • Equivalent of 3+ years of experience on senior engineering roles (designing APIs, abstractions, and tools used by other engineers).
  • Equivalent of 5+ years of software development experience.
  • We expect that as an individual contributor, you are a role model to more junior engineers.
  • You will be expected to guide the technology decisions of your squad while contributing alongside them.
  • Write modern JavaScript/ECMAScript code that is clean, well-tested, and reusable.
  • Strong communication and technical writing skills.
  • Strong experience with React.js to develop and test applications/components that work optimistically in a production environment.
  • Strong experience with Node.js-based GraphQL API using Apollo.
  • Prior knowledge or ability to quickly learn React Native for mobile development preferred.
  • Prior knowledge or ability to quickly learn Material-UI component library preferred.
  • Prior knowledge or ability to quickly learn developing in a CI/CD environment preferred.
  • Prior knowledge or familiarity with Python for back-end development a plus.
  • Familiarity with Jest, unit testing, debugging, profiling, performance monitoring.
  • B.S., M.S. or PhD from a top university in computer science, engineering or related fields.

We are excited to be included in Built In LA’s 50 Startups to Watch in 2020 and have been mentioned in quite a few notable articles in the press:

Forbes Magazine
“BuildOps is unique because it addresses the problem of efficiency in construction for an often-overlooked audience. Rather than focusing on large projects, or catering to owners, they look to the needs of technician-heavy subcontracting firms working in the commercial space.”

TechCrunch
“The new financing will be used to support the company’s continued growth. BuildOps sells software that integrates scheduling, dispatching, inventory management, contracts, workflow and accounting into a single software package for commercial real estate contractors with staff ranging from a few dozen to several hundred employees.”

Crunchbase
In a statement, [former NFL superstar] Joe Montana noted that his firm (Liquid 2 Ventures) has an investment thesis in supporting America’s working class… “I just love the idea of making their lives far easier and better,” he said. With BuildOps, “you have one solution that does it all and talks seamlessly to every single part of their business from parts to ordering to inventory and more.”

Wall Street Journal [Paywall]
BuildOps, the Santa Monica, California, startup that provides software for real estate subcontractors was seeded with $5.8 million in funding from investors including Fika Ventures, MetaProp VC, Global Founders Capital, CrossCut Ventures, TenOneTen, IGSB, 1984 Ventures, Liquid 2 Ventures and Ground Up Ventures.
