Builder Prime: Senior Platform Engineer (Java)

Headquarters: Staten Island, NY

About the Role

Builder Prime is the absolute best product out there for home improvement contractors. Our customers love our software and the support they receive from us. Check out our reviews on Capterra and Facebook to see what some customers say about us. However, we continue to challenge ourselves to grow. We seek someone with experience to help meet these challenges and improve our products and technical infrastructure.

As a Senior Software Engineer focused on the Platform, you will guide a group of talented engineers tasked with delivering innovative software solutions and developing the infrastructure that deploys our product. We are currently running a Java Spring app on Heroku with an AngularJS frontend connected to a multi-tenant PostgreSQL database. However, one of the first projects of the role will be to assist in upgrading our tech stack while migrating to the best Cloud provider to support our incoming growth.

This is a full-time and long-term position that is 100% remote. Our meetings and customer meetings will be conducted remotely, mostly over Zoom. Working during or close to US East Coast business hours would be preferred. We meet as an entire company for an off-site retreat at least once yearly and would cover your expenses to join us.
