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, not to mention one of the most dangerous. That’s why we’re looking for a talented Principal Data Reliability Engineer to join Procore’s journey to revolutionize a historically underserved industry.

As a Principal Data Reliability Engineer, you’ll join a highly skilled team of Site Reliability, Security, Data Administration, and Production Engineering disciplines dispersed across our Carpinteria, CA and Austin, TX offices.

Data Reliability Engineers apply a mix of data engineering, administration, and software development disciplines to automate a range of data management work including provisioning data stores, managing uptime, data integrity, data refresh, disaster recovery, self-healing and alerting, and data reporting. As Principal Data Reliability Engineer, you’ll lead strategic initiatives across the organization, mentor other engineers, and provide hands-on support for all things related to Procore’s data systems. 

This position will report to the Senior Manager, Data Systems & Reliability, and has the opportunity to be located in any of our US offices. Remote candidates will be considered based on experience. We’re looking for someone to join us immediately.

  • Design and implement self-service tools enabling application teams to quickly deploy their own data stores and schemas with appropriate guardrails in place to ensure data reliability
  • Assist application developers with query creation, optimization, tuning, and related function
  • Identify performance trends and opportunities, and deploy proactive corrective measures to minimize downtime
  • Stay on top of industry and technology trends
  • Work across our tech stack of Java, Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, AWS, Kafka, S3, Elasticsearch
