Senior DevOps Engineer
Our software team’s main job is to build and improve our industry leading commercial real estate platform.
Our core product is our marketing suite, which gathers Buildout users’ property information then sends it out to our users’ customers through all the main marketing channels. We create emails, pdf documents, print materials, almost anything you can think of. We also have a modern, customizable plugin that brokers can embed in their websites to keep every bit of information up to date.
Moving forward, we have a deep product roadmap that we want your help with. We just launched a lot of awesome new features like property maps complete with interactive overlays, a fully user-customizable version of our plugin, and even a tool to help companies make custom-built, browser-compatible emails. We are looking for teammates who want to take ownership of their products and see them from inception all the way through the first release.
What kind of team are you joining?
Our goal as a team is to give you the tools you need to be the most comfortable doing your work. If you like collaborating, we have an open office and you can pair with other team members easily. Maybe you like to put your head down and concentrate? We respect your flow so pop in your headphones and work. We emphasize a work life balance at Buildout, and because of that we have a flexible schedule. You’re never going to have a manager looking over your shoulder asking you to report your hours (however they will be around for frequent 1-on-1’s to make sure that you’re feeling great). As a team member at Buildout you can do what you need to do to get the job done.
When you join the team, you’re not just joining part of Buildout, you’re joining Buildout. While you are a member of the engineering organization, you are also part of a team that includes dozens of other great people. We have the kind of team where everyone knows everyone’s name, where having a chat with the CEO isn’t a special occasion because all of us, from top to bottom, pride ourselves on being accessible. We are a company where everyone is free to be whoever they want to be, always.
