Job Description

# About Arcol
Arcol is a collaborative building design and documentation tool that runs in your browser.

CAD went mainstream in the 80’s, and BIM came soon after, but since then it seems like tools have lost the magic. Over time they’ve gotten clunky, slow, unintuitive, and bloated.

Arcol is bringing the magic back to building design and making it accessible to everyone – from world class AEC firms to people who don’t know what “CAD” or “BIM” means.

## Your Qualifications
• Deeply experienced with WebGL and 3D rendering.
• You have experience working at an early stage startup on software engineering.
• You are deeply competent at 3D mathematics related to computer graphics.
• You have a “show, don’t tell” mindset and default to action.
• You have empathy for the end user, an ability to “put yourself in their shoes”.
• You have experience writing performant low-level computer graphics.
• You have experience with computational geometry at scale.

## What You Will Do
• You will work with the engineering team to tackle tough geometry/low-level graphics problems and help build our 3D modelling functionality.
• We believe in hiring “swiss army knives” and “wearing many hats”, so you will have ownership of the product roadmap and development, work across the front and backend of the product and take user feedback to improve the interface.
• You will be responsible for designing and creating performant 3D graphics in a web-based environment
• You will be pushing the bounds of what rendered graphics in the browser can do. We are trying to put buildings in the browser!
• Work with the team and use our stack (React & ThreeJS) to build beautiful building design tools.

## How We Run Hiring
• Apply to this job posting. Please include a link to your personal site or portfolio.
• An intro call with the founders so we can learn about each other. We’re most interested in learning why you were motivated to apply.
• A small task to complete similar to a problem you would encounter as a member of the team. You’ll be paid for your time
• Another call to present your work. You can expect a few more detailed questions so we get an understanding of how you think.

## Benefits
• Receive competiive compensation and benefits.
• Work with our founder to build a 3, 6, and 12-month product roadmap – with an understanding that plans inevitably evolve.
• Establish design best practices, as well as a standardized design aesthetic for the entire app.
