Aquicore was founded in 2013 in the early hours of the morning on the belief that smarter and more connected buildings will have a global impact in curbing our climate challenges and make buildings technologically ready for the next century. 

We create global impact by bettering the built environment every day.

Our next generation of software which facilitates smarter building operations is used by the largest real estate owners and operators around the world. We are changing the industry from the ground up and we’re looking for the right people to achieve our mission!

We’re amped by the work we do and driven to constantly propel our values and culture.

We take our core values as a company seriously and aspire to level-up our Aquicorians in their careers and professional growth.
