About Us

At HELIX we work with large-scale real estate tenants and building owner-operators in the US, UK and Asia. Our clients need accurate and usable 3D building plans generated quickly for construction and occupancy planning, asset purchase analysis and more.

We are a group of motivated domain and technology experts trying to leverage the latest in the field of Reality Capture, AI+ML, and Large Scale Distributed Systems to improve the performance of built environments. We use advanced data capture, AI and cloud compute technology to relentlessly reduce the time and cost to generate digital building models and to organize and unlock building data.

The Role

This is a unique opportunity to work in a fun and challenging role using cutting edge technology within a young, funded startup. You will face a few of the toughest problems in the industry, like efficiently managing huge data sets including 3D geometry, sharing protected assets and processing concurrent data at large scale, with lots of autonomy. 

As a Senior Software Engineer you will be responsible for building and maintaining services that run on our Kubernetes based platform. You will work closely with product managers and engineers to build a platform for sharing, managing and transforming 3D modeling assets in a maintainable, stable and highly scalable way.

HELIX team members hold themselves and each other to the very highest standards of software development practices and security protections. If you are ready to own what you build, we would like to invite you to join an elite global team of engineers and scientists.
