Job Description:

Position Summary:

G.L. Homes operations span many complex business processes that are still mostly manual. Our operations include land development, single/multi-family home construction, commercial real estate construction, commercial leasing, home financing, and title transfers. We are ranked 25th on the nationwide list of top 100 builders in terms of annual revenue.

Our industry requires extensive custom software development. Only a few of our processes are a match for off-the-shelf systems.

With so few off-the-shelf software options, we need to develop our own solutions. We are searching for someone to help us create systems that allow GL Homes to operate more efficiently, better serve our customers, and be more responsive to ever-changing market conditions.

This role requires someone willing and enthusiastic about tackling complex problems and developing creative solutions. We need team members who can learn quickly, analyze complex issues, and develop innovative solutions. You will be challenged to develop multi-language and multi-platform coding skills.
