ICON is looking for a Senior Software Developer to join our platform team. You will work across our software systems to create tools, services, and interfaces that are revolutionizing the construction industry.
You'll get the opportunity to work with some of the world's leading engineering and creative professionals to build a new technology ecosystem from the ground up. There is virtually no legacy in our tech stack, so we are building new systems instead of servicing technical debt. As a result, a significant portion of your time will be spent pushing the limits of what is possible in construction automation and improving our end product for developers, builders, and homeowners.
We are looking for an open-minded, structured thinker who loves to solve complex problems and appreciates the value of prototyping and refining applications over time. This individual should be experienced with each layer of a production software and able to move between server side, database, front-end, deployment, and scaling.
Significant professional experience as a software engineer
BS in Computer Science or equivalent experience
Experience building platforms, micro-services, and APIs
Experience managing other technical team members on large projects
A willingness to accept failure, learn and try again, and an open mind to try solutions that may seem impossible at first
A passion for learning new disciplines and gaining a deep understanding of how other professionals do their work
An ability to communicate clearly and succinctly both in-person and via written asynchronous channels
Node.js and TypeScript experience, with a functional programming approach, preferred
React, Redux, and RxJs experience
Flutter, React Native, or Android development experience
PostgreSQL, GraphQL experience
Modern CI/CD workflows: GitHub, Jenkins, Travis, etc.
Experience with tools and services that leverage three-dimensional trigonometry to calculate and analyze shapes and tool paths
Solving one of the most challenging problems humanity faces requires a level of diversity across disciplines. ICON believes that by being a non-homogenous organization, we can capture unique perspectives, educational backgrounds, and ideation. We strive to be inclusive and seek team members who share our passion for the mission within the mission: building robust and diverse teams to help us prevail in the face of our challenges.
We're a team of varied backgrounds, countries, and experiences, and we believe our differences make us stronger as we tackle some of the most challenging problems of our time.
Every startup wants to change the world, but we genuinely believe we're not being hyperbolic when we say this technology has the potential to reinvent human shelter, dramatically improving quality and resiliency while driving down costs to make housing affordable for everyone. We believe in harnessing the power of construction technology for the good of all humanity, both here on Earth and off-world. And while we get excited about R&D accomplishments in the lab, we get more excited when we see our work out in the real world, printing real homes for real people.
We work hard because we know what we are doing can reshape the way we live as a species. And it doesn't hurt that it's super fun. Where else do you get to play with giant robots and see the results of your work manifest in beautiful full-scale buildings that didn't exist before—and that someone can now call home?
