Autodesk Senior Frontend Engineer in Novi, Michigan

Job Requisition ID #


Position Overview

Our team within Autodesk Construction Solutions is looking for a senior web developer to help us build document markup and collaboration functionality for Autodesk Build, PlanGrid, and BIM360. We help customers throughout the construction lifecycle add annotations, visualize changes, and collaborate on blueprints and 3D models. This is your chance to dive deeper into the web platform’s graphics stack, learn about collaborative editing tools, and contribute to making software that helps thousands in the construction industry build the future of the cities and towns we all live in.

As a web developer on the team, you’ll be responsible for building markup functionality on top of Autodesk’s Forge Viewer, a 2D and 3D model viewer build using WebGL and THREE.js. The rest of our stack is standard for modern front-end development: React, Typescript, and an in-house design system. To share code with our native mobile apps, we use Kotlin Multiplatform. Prior experience with Kotlin isn’t needed, and we’ve found that web developers pick it up quickly and enjoy collaborating with mobile developers on the multiplatform libraries.

In addition to building out core markup functionality, our team operates as a platform for about half a dozen other teams with markup-related features. If you enjoy serving both the needs of customers as well as other teams across Autodesk, this could be a good role for you. We’re looking for engineers who care about not just customer experience, but the developer experience of their peers too.

If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you!
