Lead Software Developer at Pillar Technologies

New York City · Full Time

Pillar was founded in 2015 with the mission of helping to prevent damage and waste on the construction site. It is estimated that for every three buildings built, we could build another one with the waste generated during that process. Pillar is using technology to help solve this problem starting with an environmental monitoring system designed to predict and prevent damage before it occurs. We are a small team that likes to have fun, but works hard. We are looking for someone who can bring a strong software skillset and unique personality to the team and join us on what is going to be an exciting ride as we continue to grow and expand.
