Avvir is out to change the way we interact with the built environment. We create and continuously update a digital replica of buildings that serve as the building’s system of record. We do this by comparing the 3D design models (known as BIMs) that are created at the outset of a building’s construction to laser scans of the ever changing reality. During construction this enables stakeholders to identify construction errors and monitor progress in real time. And once a building is occupied, we enable that digital twin to serve as a platform for the internet of things, integrating data from hundreds of connected sensors in a common data environment.
We value and practice outcome over effort, common decency, passion for the work, and respect for personal lives. We are headquartered in New York City and have 19 employees. We have diverse backgrounds, encourage collaboration and teamwork, and cheer each other on. We work on an East Coast (US) schedule and are currently fully remote.
- In less than 12 months we’ve gone from $300k in ARR to $1.4m.

- Our current customers love us. We have a 100% conversion rate from our pilot engagements over the last year.
We are looking for a VP of Engineering to lead the growth of our highly collaborative team. Avvir is solving some of the toughest problems in construction by providing detailed, reliable quantification of progress and evaluation of quality for large construction projects. The technical problems we are attacking range from 3D graphics to data mining and we are building a team that has the breadth to take on these varied challenges.
You will help to recruit talented passionate engineers who are a match for our culture. You will manage this team as it scales. You’ll work closely with the CTO to maintain code quality and with the Head of Product to realize the product vision.

- Support and mentor the engineering teams. Create opportunities for folks to learn and grow through workshops about software design and regular one on one meetings. Collect and disseminate feedback and promote practices and patterns that improve our ability to deliver value. Promote a positive company culture.
- Team Leader. Set and measure goals for the engineering teams. Fast-track development by lending your eyes to critical projects and issues. Help systematically balance competing priorities, and support communication between developers and product / operations teams.
- Recruiting. Identify and hire great engineering candidates as we triple the size of our engineering team over the next year.
- Technical Partnerships. Coordinate with external companies’ engineering teams and our internal Director of Partnerships to support integration development.
- Product Vision. Collaborate with product and design team to find the best path for delivering value.
You’re probably a great fit for this role if you are:

Collaborative - You love working as part of a team. You appreciate give and take in an exchange and believe every voice has something to offer.
A Leader - You mentor as well as manage. You influence, motivate, and enable others to contribute toward team goals.
An Architect - You build systems that can be easily understood, grown, and changed. You are comfortable picking up new technologies and get excited about creating a great product that delivers value to customers and the business.

How we work:
We keep tasks small and purpose focused with clear acceptance criteria so we can better manage and understand risks. We test-drive our code working outside-in so that it’s easy to understand and change. We pair up about 20 hours/week to facilitate learning, to write better code, and to reduce knowledge siloing. Also, it’s fun!
We are always working on improving the way that we work, and every week we reflect and consider ways we could be doing things better.
At Avvir we believe in providing benefits that not only match our Avvir values (Decency, Passion for the Work, Personal Life Matters, and Outcome over Effort ) but that enhance the lives of our team members. We have a generous vacation policy, fantastic health insurance plans, flexible work arrangements, and equity options.
We also offer a meaningful place to put your talents to work, expanding your job skills, and the ability to be a part of fundamentally changing the way construction is done. Plus you will get to work with some awesome people.
