#23695 Lead Data Infrastructure Engineer
Location: Redwood City, CA

Problem: In the $12T construction industry, 98% of projects are delivered, on average, 80% over budget. Our client is on a mission to stop that from happening.

Root cause? Inability to measure site progress in an objective, trustworth and frequent manner. Construction managers are frequently surprised to discover that their multi-million dollar projects have been running behind for several weeks or months. By that point, the money has already been spent and it's too late to fix the problem.

Solution: Use robots to survey the sites every day, proprietary deep learning and AI based algorithms to assess progress and turns the terabytes of data it collects into simple insights for project managers that enable them to react to issues in minutes, not months. This enables them to constantly correct site inefficiencies and has demonstrated RoI of eliminating coverage entirely and even delivering projects up to 11% below budget.

They have closed deals with Kaiser Permanente, Sutter Health and the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art.

Team: They are some of the brightest minds in Silicon Valley that includes PhDs, engineers, business leaders and civil engineering profession on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list, graduates from Stanford University and with experience at organizations such as Google Advanced Technologies and Projects.
