WiredScore’s mission is to enable the world to become better connected by improving technology in buildings and helping people find the buildings they need.

To achieve this mission, WiredScore has developed WiredScore Certification, a commercial real estate rating system that empowers landlords to understand, improve, and promote their buildings' technological attributes.

Today, our 3,000+ certified properties total 650 million square feet of office space in 160 cities, including New York, London, Toronto, Paris, and Berlin.

We are proud to be working with Bessemer Venture Partners and Fifth Wall Ventures as our partners and investors as we continue to expand our business to new countries and new verticals.

About The Role

Reporting into our Head of Business Solutions, we are looking for a Development Manager with a good working knowledge of internal and client facing software development.

We have built an internal platform on JS Framework (utilising TypeScript, Angular, HMTL5, CSS3, node.JS, AWS) to manage and deliver our core certification process, and this platform is growing rapidly across our product suite. Tightly integrated with Salesforce, and with a Progressive Web App for data collection in the field, our software has given the team a leap forward in efficiency and provided the beginnings of a unique industry database that we plan to make available to our clients.

We now need to stabilise, grow and improve this platform as it starts to move from an internal workflow and process management system into a client facing portal and data syndication service.

Utilising a third party development resource, with plans to concurrently bring some development resource in house, this role will be key in driving our software development strategy as we grow aggressively across international markets.

This role will require travel into our London office at least once per fortnight.
