Staff Software Engineer (Backend)

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 Staff Backend Engineer to join us on our journey to revolutionize a historically underserved industry.

As part of Procore’s first engineering team in Sydney, you will work with product teams across the world to fine tune and craft an application that functions across international boundaries.You will help to customize our tools to fit local legal and financial requirements, and work in our global cloud infrastructure with regional storage profiles for high performance and accessibility. A large part of your role will be working with remote teams in different countries and time zones with minimal supervision. 

As a Staff Backend Engineer at Procore, you’re given the unique opportunity to partner intimately with our customer base, translating their fundamental needs into technological SaaS solutions. Backed by the might of our teams, we’ll provide you with the tools and resources needed to achieve extraordinary results that render a significant impact extending beyond the boundaries of traditional engineering roles.

You’ll be a part of our growing office in Sydney in the heart of the CBD and will be joining team members from Sales, Customer Success, and Marketing! We’re looking for candidates to join us immediately.

What you’ll do:

  • Establish standards for development teams and lead initiatives in collaboration with Product, Quality Assurance, User Experience, and other internal groups
  • Use a customer-centric approach to lead architectural design decisions that improve scalability and performance
  • Develop fellow teammates by conducting code reviews, providing mentorship, pairing, and training opportunities
  • Leverage our tech stack: Ruby/Rails/Postgres running in AWS on the back end, and React/JavaScript on the front end. Our mobile apps provide access to many of Procore’s tools on iOS and Android, and we also make plug-ins and utilities to extend the functionality of Procore on Windows devices 
  • Drive key projects including:
    • Scalability: We’re scaling Ruby on Rails and need engineers who are ready to take on the challenge of working on live, core systems with millions of users.
    • Complex file systems: We’re building a world-class document and photo file management system from the ground up. You’ll work through challenges like pdf creation, photo management, large file manipulations, permissions and file revisioning, 3D models, and videos.
    • Microservices: We build, maintain, and develop a wide series of microservices and are looking for engineers adept at discovering new opportunities and driving them to completion.

What we're looking for:

  • 7+ years experience in Object Oriented Program fundamentals, Test Driven Development and Design principles (Ruby on Rails, Python, C++, Java)
  • Understand the tradeoffs between technical, analytical and product goals, and are adept at formulating solutions that satisfy all of these needs
  • Experience in working with asynchronous requests in large scale applications
  • Experience in working and developing RESTful APIs
  • Experience leading large initiatives with the ability to course correct as needed
  • Proven expertise with modern web development including development, testing, staging, deploying, and monitoring
  • Ability to consistently evaluate current technical approaches to continue to be industry best-of-class
