Doxel makes hard decisions easier on construction projects.

Construction is a $12T industry where the majority of the gains from information technology are yet to be realized, with IT spend being among the lowest compared to other industries.

Doxel is AI that uses cameras & image recognition to analyze construction projects & predict delays, so teams can solve problems before they snowball and make decisions with objective data.

We’re at an exciting stage of scale as we build upon our growing market momentum. Our software is trusted by Shell Oil, Genentech, HCA healthcare, Kaiser, Turner, Layton and several others.

The Role

Engineers on the Backend team produce the foundation for Doxel's construction insights. The team owns the behind the scenes technology that snapshots hundreds of thousands of square feet of construction activity per day and the software that ingests 100s of gigabytes of data per site per day. You will work closely with Product, Frontend Engineering, and Design to build a polished product that serves customer’s needs in an intuitive way. You will also work internally with teams that build and train our state-of-the-art CV and ML automation pipelines.

As the company serves a growing number of customers, the engineering team needs to bolster the data pipeline and API platform we have built to reduce the frequency of service disruptions and make the platform easier to extend in order to support new features.  You will apply your backend software development expertise to promote strong design patterns and unify our data pipeline so different teams and systems work well together, acting as a force multiplier. Outside of your domain, you're eager to learn, inside your domain you're able and willing to teach us something.  You care deeply about reliable, low-upkeep software.
