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 Software Engineer to join Procore’s journey to revolutionize a historically underserved industry.
As a Principal Software Engineer, you’ll design and create the common flexible core of our current and future UI platform, empowering internal and external teams to create and deliver experiences on the Procore UI Platform more efficiently. In addition to playing a key role in our technology strategy, your work will directly enable all experiences built on the platform to seamlessly flex, extend, and meet customer’s unique construction needs on a global scale. While driving immediate and long-term strategic direction for major parts of the UI technology stack, you’ll identify critical areas based on future growth and collaborate with Product, UX, and other groups to develop roadmaps and tackle initiatives.
Backed by the might of our teams, you’ll be provided with the tools and resources needed to achieve extraordinary results that render a significant impact extending beyond the boundaries of traditional engineering roles. If you’re a strong leader with proven experience evaluating industry best-of-class technical approaches—we have a spot for you on our team.
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.

- Architect, design, implement, test, and deliver high-quality code, tooling, and frameworks while determining principles, frameworks, and standards for the UI platform
- Build underlying UI platform features that enable customization and UI platform extensibility by users and first or third-party developers

- Develop teammates by conducting code reviews, providing mentorship, pairing, and training opportunities
- Serve as a subject matter expert in a domain, including tools, processes, and procedures that help guide others to create and maintain a healthy codebase
- Work closely with a team of engineers, product managers, and UX experts and present your designs to internal/external groups and review designs of others
- Develop test strategies, work with test automation frameworks, write unit/functional tests to drive code coverage and automation metrics
What we're looking for:
- Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science, a related field, or comparable work experience
