As a Principal Software Engineer, you’ll develop our Universal Tool Platform (UTP), a centralized platform for managing all construction data and capabilities.  UTP will allow our Product & Technology teams, professional services, third-party partners, and customers to create customized tooling within Procore’s Construction Management Platform.


This position has the opportunity to be based in our Carpinteria, CA, or Austin, TX offices or work remotely from any U.S location. We’re looking for someone to join us immediately.
