Company Description

Outer Labs builds software for professionals in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction field that have the potential to radically reshape how buildings are designed, constructed, and occupied. 

Some questions we regularly consider are:  How could software automatically layout a building’s structural system?  How could software automatically understand city zoning codes? How could software interpret an architect’s ideas and intentions through a simple drawing?  or How can we help a designer explore a thousand ideas in the time it currently takes to explore one?  

We are actively seeking a skilled, proactive, and empathetic Senior Technical Project Manager to join our growing team.  You will work closely with our Director of Customer Success and project management peers, along with product design, business development, engineering and of course our customers to deliver projects successfully.  We value open mindedness, self-motivation, attention to detail, and an attitude that encourages growth and personal ownership.

As a Senior Technical Project Manager you will be involved in developing the big picture vision of our tools and their ecosystem and advocate for them throughout the development and adoption process. 

Outer Labs is a 100% distributed company, so creativity in management practices is also valued.
