About the role

🚀 About PermitFlow

PermitFlow’s mission is to streamline and simplify construction permitting in the $1.6 trillion United States construction market. Our software reduces time to permit, supporting permitting end-to-end including permit research, application preparation, submission, and monitoring.

We’ve raised a $31m Series A led by Kleiner Perkins with participation from Initialized Capital, Y Combinator, Felicis Ventures, Altos Ventures, and the founders and executives from Zillow, PlanGrid, Thumbtack, Bluebeam, Uber, Procore, and more.

Our team consists of architects, structural engineers, permitting experts, and workflow software specialists, all who have personally experienced the pain of permitting.

📌About the Team

We have a lean but mighty engineering team. We’ve done a lot with a little, but there’s much more work to be done to continue our fast-paced growth and we want you to be a part of that growth. You’ll help us get there by owning end-to-end projects, talking with customers, and ultimately supporting the growth of PermitFlow. Ideally, you’re based in NYC or willing to relocate for hybrid work. We’re currently hybrid in-person 3 days/week in our NYC office.
