Collaborate on designing and building technical solutions that will work best for VPO clients, by writing code (C#, JavaScript) and scripts (PowerShell and others), as well as by configuring, customizing, and integrating off-the-shelf solutions.

As a software developer at VPO, you will not only enhance and refine our core software solution (which provides project and documentation management for the AEC industry), but you'll also work with our consultants to understand clients’ specific needs, and then define and implement solution architectures across the Microsoft ecosystem, to meet those needs. You aren’t just writing code for a single SaaS product; you’re applying your skills to a diverse set of contexts and technologies. This will mean integrating with third-party applications, implementing “low-/no-code” solutions, learning new tools, and defining new methodologies. Working in a small team environment means you’ll have a lot of autonomy and flexibility. We’re a well-established small company that feels like a startup, and we are looking for people who love to write code, but also to collaborate and solve problems with non-code technologies; whatever is best for our clients.
