Job description

About the Role: PlanGrid is on a mission to build the future faster by creating beautiful software for construction, one of the oldest an largest industries on the planet. We’re changing that by building tools that automate the mundane tasks around collaboration, planning and version control (think version control for blueprints). Our users are building some of the most amazing construction projects in the world, and our platform is their central information point. As a Windows Engineer, you will tackle some very difficult and interesting challenges.  Things like: - Building near real-time collaboration and markup for construction drawings - Building slick and responsive UI that can handle millions of user generated data points (like photos and annotations) - Replacing Excel workflows with simple, powerful tools that work great on mobile devices (both phones and tablets) - Build unique user experiences for large scale displays (Surface Hub) - Integrating with existing construction software in ways that will remove the tedious from our users daily jobs and let them focus on building incredible building on time and on budget! - Working at PlanGrid means that you will be supported doing really great work, using technologies you like, alongside peers that you respect. You’ll be doing it on a product that delights users and has had exponential revenue growth from the day it launched. If that sounds like the environment for you, we’d love for you to build and grow with us. About our Tech Stack: We are building a desktop application in C# (we use the latest version) using WPF because we need to support the user which are running on Windows 7. Aside from this support our main focus will be to use ‘Project Centennial’ from Microsoft to allow our WPF application to run from a universal container and be distributed via the Store on Windows 10. Core technologies we use (there are many others that we use as well) are: - SQL LocalDB + Entity Framework + Dapper + tuned custom SQL to store our data. - ReactiveExtensions + ReactiveUI for responsive UI. - Newtonsoft, JSON for fast and easy JSON parsing. - WIX + MSI for our installer technology. However, you will also be expected to work with other teams, not just Windows, and their stack is extremely diverse so you will get exposure to lots of technologies including, but not limited to, Python, PostgreSQL, Mongo, iOS, and Android.
