job description

Software Engineer

job summary:

Opportunity: Join a team creating cutting edge software for the Architectural, Engineering and Construction (AEC) community. You will play a key role in charting the future development of this software application, a BIM (Building Information Modeling) product configurator that guides users through the entire process of specifying and procuring doors, frames and related hardware. This application will be used to analyze, visualize, share and enhance real world construction projects across the globe.

Role: Developing advanced BIM software for the AEC community. This includes but is not limited to development of the Openings Studio BIM Configurator. Openings Studio is primarily a fat client application with a centralized server side database. You will be developing client facing interfaces using Java, .NET and C++ that analyze BIM construction documents and generate interactive 3D worlds for project and product visualization and configuration. You will be developing web services that execute client requests and plug-in DLLs that interface with 3 rd party design applications from Autodesk and other BIM software vendors.

Reporting to the Software Architect, you will take a key role on a talented multi person team and work on the development and enhancements to Openings Studio. You'll write a large amount of code, design, communicate ideas to the team, implement and ultimately be able to step in and handle any component or the entire life cycle of the process. We have a fast moving environment where you might have multiple projects -- new development, upgrades, enhancements, etc. You'll use a wide range of programming skills in completing these tasks.
