What are we developing?

Digital Masterplanning is a cloud-based platform built to centralize, de-risk, and accelerate the real estate and infrastructure development process.

The real estate and infrastructure development industry is decades behind when it comes to advancements in cloud-based collaboration, data integration, and geospatial technology. Entire sectors of the industry are built around archaic processes and outdated software, resulting in projects that are over budget, behind schedule, and less profitable.

dmp. allows users to identify opportunities, render projects in 3D, forecast financial scenarios, and craft powerful presentations. It centralizes work that would ordinarily be done by numerous professionals over the course of weeks into one platform where it can be accomplished in days or even hours. In doing so, dmp. yields considerable gains in cost and time efficiency and drives better outcomes for all stakeholders.

What does my day-to-day look like?

As our software engineering manager, you will have significant control over what your day-to-day looks like. Right now, we use Trello for sprint management and feature-specific communication, Slack for general and quick communication, and GitLab as our repo. However, part of your role will entail identifying and codifying the workflow that best serves your team, and we won't ever let inertia stand in the way of a better process.

How can I advance my career?

When you join Digital Masterplanning, you aren’t just joining a startup. You’re joining a team of experienced, driven professionals and a company making deliberate, sustainable progress. Our team is lean by design, giving you the opportunity to make pivotal decisions and see Digital Masterplanning’s success directly reflected in your compensation, benefits package, and career advancement.

What Drives Us?

Digital Masterplanning is more than just a startup; it is a collection of individuals with decades of combined experience in the planning, design, and real estate industries.

This experience has led us to the realization that the real estate and infrastructure development process is mired with inefficient and ineffective software. The creators of that software, rather than working towards solutions, have instead focused on maintaining market dominance by impeding cross-platform integration.

Who pays the price? Users, who are forced into cumbersome workflows to accommodate sub-optimal tools.

At Digital Masterplanning, we believe in progress. We believe in building a better model that makes the old one obsolete. We believe that the right tools can revolutionize industries that have been stuck in the past for far too long. We pursue radical disruptions defined by sustainability, equity, efficiency, and effectiveness.

We aren't just here to build software. We are here to transform the ways in which people plan, design, shape, and understand the built environment. We are here to shift the paradigm.

Digital Masterplanning is an Equal Opportunity Employer. We always strive for diversity in our workplace, thinking, and culture.
