About our team:
We're a software engineering team within CBRE's Digital and Technology group. We are uniquely positioned within the organization to access global data, tools, resources, and leaders throughout the industry. Our mission is to add new value by developing targeted, scalable technology platforms for internal and external consumption.
We solve complex commercial real estate problems by bringing together good people, great minds, and top-tier technologies. We believe in leveraging and supporting open-source projects and their broader communities whenever possible. We love Unix-based systems (we use Macs) but appreciate other flavors. We believe that personal growth is just as important as company growth, and that they are interdependent.
If we aren't discussing the latest open-source news, we are chatting about our latest food discoveries, our pets, the most current (or timeless) music/audio technologies, or one of our upcoming lunch and learn events. We value good people first, and often enjoy hanging out at happy hour or other team events.
