We are a former real estate startup, acquired by CBRE in 2017. We have a startup culture without the startup risk.


Our group develops unique and sophisticated products that are used globally to provide better data, better workflows, and (most importantly) better experiences. For more information about our team, please visit https://cbrebuild.com/nyc.


We would like to double our engineering team (currently around 15) and add more products to our platform. We are looking for a Director of Engineering to lead and scale our teams.


Things we value:

Impact: We’re a small team with a global reach in a trillion dollar industry. We have access to data, tools, resources, and leaders throughout the industry. We have the opportunity to change commercial real estate with our products.

Diversity: We think diverse teams build better products. Our engineers have a variety of educational backgrounds (Dance majors!). We lead CBRE’s New England LGBQT and Allies affinity group. We put our pronouns in our email signatures.

Learning: We invest in employee development. We make time to explore ideas and play with technology, including a machine shop with laser cutter and 3d printer. We fund training, conferences, and other educational opportunities.
