Intermediate Software Developer, Orbital Stack

Remote (Canada)

Join us in building companies that change the world, literally

RWDI Ventures isn’t a typical corporate innovation hub. Our mission is to create new companies that transform how people, companies, and the planet interact. We’re helping architects design more sustainable communities. We’re helping businesses understand the risks, opportunities, and challenges of weather. We’re helping families be safe in the face of increasing climate change. 

Orbital Stack, our first portfolio company, is growing and looking to expand its team.  Our first release of rapid insight software is already generating a steady stream of income, informing RWDI’s own engineers as they help design the next generation of high-performance buildings. We are combining technology from computational fluid dynamics, machine learning, data visualization, and high-performance computing to make this possible.    

We are already operating in private beta and serving early adopters. We have revenue, and a client base of world-class firms.  All the while, we are a small, focused team that collectively owns our processes, the product, and the daily success of our customer.
