Tangible Materials, Inc.: Software Engineer for Climate Tech Start Up

Organization: Tangible Materials, Inc.

Point of Contact at Tangible Materials, Inc.: Matthew Cherry

Organization Address: 2 Embarcadero Center, San Francisco, CA 94111

We are excited to be seeking an experienced software developer to contribute to the development of a platform that will increase the use of low-carbon, sustainable building products in commercial real estate projects globally. 

About Tangible

What if it were possible to build buildings with materials that don’t make the climate inhospitable, destroy ecosystems, and harm humans?

Building materials are responsible for approximately 11% of all global greenhouse gas emissions, and real estate development firms are facing increasing investor pressure, local regulations, and tenant demand to build more sustainably. However, there are currently no tools that allow real estate developers and architects to efficiently discover and report on materials that meet their sustainability requirements. 

Tangible is a software platform for real estate owners to manage and report on the embodied carbon of developments, and find ways to reduce emissions.

About the Role

Location: Fully remote or hybrid in San Francisco 

The ideal candidate is…

– A product-minded crafter at heart who has built web applications from the ground up

– A problem solver who’s willing to work in any area of the stack to build the most impactful features

– A cloud native, able to accelerate development by choosing the right tool for the job

– Familiar with the demands of building products in a startup environment and comfortable with ambiguity

– Deeply passionate about putting their skills to work to address climate change and eager to join an ambitious, fun-loving, and radically caring team that imagines the world as it should be rather than as it is

Some of the things you’ll be working on:

– Architecting the operating system for commercial real estate embodied carbon.

– Evolving our database of information about building materials, manufacturers, commercial real estate projects, and their carbon footprints, material health impacts, costs, and more

– Using ML / AI to rapidly solve problems in the real estate industry

– Collaborating with UX, Product, Research and our founding team to build the product.
