UrbanFootprint is a software company that serves the world’s first Urban Intelligence Platform to public and private-sector organizations taking on the urban, climate, and social equity challenges of the 21st century. UrbanFootprint’s data and web-based geospatial software unifies previously siloed climate, environmental, urban, and socio-economic data and helps governments, utilities, financial institutions, and urban and transportation planners to answer fundamental resource questions — where to invest, where to deploy resources, and where to optimize for risk, return, resilience, and community.
Governments and businesses are investing in resilience at an unprecedented level. In the next ten years alone, they will spend over $8T on transitioning to a net-zero economy and building efficient, equitable, and sustainable practices. But they don’t know where to invest. They need clear and precise signals about climate threats and dynamic urban, mobility, and economic trends.
The iconic technology companies of this decade will be those that address social inequality and climate change at scale. This represents a once-in-many-generation opportunity to change the way organizations think—and it is a massive and accelerating multi-billion dollar opportunity.
In 2020, we grew revenue by over 4x. Our growing customer base extends across the energy, government, mobility, and urban development sectors. Fast Company has named us as one of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2021 and a World Changing Ideas finalist, and we were named to the GovTech 100 list of top technology companies serving government agencies.
We are growing our team to meet market demand and accelerate product development. We’re looking for the most inspired, most talented, and hardest working people to help us meet important global, societal, and business imperatives. We draw talent from the best technology companies and educational institutions, and attract people who want to apply their talent and creativity to solving hard technology and product-related problems and addressing the most pressing climate, equity, and urban challenges of our generation.
UrbanFootprint is looking for a Director of Engineering to lead our engineering team to build our next generation UrbanFootprint Cloud Platform. We are looking for a pragmatic leader with strong emotional intelligence, experience growing and developing teams, and success in building a culture of engineering excellence. As the leader of our engineering organization, you will partner with business stakeholders including Product and Data Science/Data Engineering to plan and execute against an ambitious product vision. We have an exciting product roadmap ahead of us and need your help to drive the technology decisions and innovation that will help us create a world-class software platform.
