About the role

Hi YC Fam! We're hiring a Principal Engineer/Tech Lead. DigiBuild makes construction software that helps commercial builders automate processes and reduce their risk on construction projects; we create a Common Data Environment for customers that can save them up to 5% throughout the lifecycle of their assets.

Our tools improve workflows like procurement, payments, and contract administration. Construction is a 10T industry and accounts for 13% of global GDP. But it is 10 years behind other markets as far as digitization goes so there is a massive opportunity here.

We're solving a unique engineering problem by building software for multiple construction stakeholders who don't trust one another but need to send important data and workflows back and forth frequently on their projects.

SaaS model. We're looking for a senior-level Principal Engineer/Tech Lead with experience in Node.js, React, and SQL to drive rapid buildout of new products and help take the company to the next level.

Tasks and Deliverables:

Fill in and propose requirements and designs with guidance from product management

Rapidly build out prototypes and proof-of-concept implementations

Play a key role in code reviews and the code quality process

Take ownership of their components and features end-to-end, from requirements to deployment and operational support

Mentor junior team members

Deep experience with the following is a must:

Backend REST and/or GraphQL development with Node.js




Experience with the following is helpful:



Distributed Ledger frameworks, especially Hyperledger and Corda

Terraform scripts


Why you should join DigiBuild Software

We're a SaaS company using blockchain to revolutionize the global construction industry. Construction is a $10T massive industry in desperate need of digitization. 70% of projects finish late or over budget, project teams are overwhelmed, and jobs are complex, many create 750,000+ documents. Large market and customer base only 2% penetrated. See Procore for an analog.

We provide the end user benefits of automation, reduced risk, and data insights.

We're backed by Y Combinator, Tim Draper, Harvard University, cofounders of Plangrid, Bluefield Capital, YC Alumni Ventures, and more.
