3D Software Engineer



Published on


We are looking for a passionate 3D Engineer that is up to speed in the areas of 3D modeling (data generation, validation, storage, querying), and 3D visualization (real-time rendering of large CAD models and Point Clouds) to contribute to the models & 3D parts of the Bimsync application, designing all solutions for scalability and performance.

The 3D models in the construction industry are ever growing in size and complexity and this requires robust solutions and a pragmatic mindset to find solutions that fit our patterns for today and tomorrow. Having previous experience from software for the construction is a plus (not mandatory).

You are expected to have good structural thinking, math skills, a good understanding of database technologies as well as being able to break-down complex problems into smaller parts that can be delivered to production independently in a timeboxed fashion.

You will be working as part of a small and highly effective 100% remote team, taking part in major technical decisions, defining technical requirements, scoping and helping to create and upgrade features around one of the core areas of our Bimsync application with the team.

What we are looking for

You should have a very good understanding of backend technologies combined with the 3D information for handling the geometry of the models. We expect a strong intimacy and proficiency in application of 3D, geometric algebra, algorithms, and data structures. Familiarity with our tech stack for the viewer is a plus: TypeScript, three.js, WebGL, shaders coding with GLSL.

General knowledge of databases, both SQL and NoSQL, to tune and shape the best data structures for each particular use case. We use a combination of MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB and DocumentDB for our data storage. Another important point is having familiarity with REST APIs and a good understanding of backwards compatibility for public APIs.

Our backend is written mostly in Java, with the performance critical parts currently in C++ (we are open to evaluate other language options for new features).

We believe in a growing and learning mindset, where people will be up to face a new challenge and learn a new technology when needed. Thus, having the right skills and a positive attitude to learning is more important for us than the degree. A BS/MS degree in Computer Science, Engineering or related subject is important, as we value an understanding of the fundamentals, but it’s not a prerequisite.

We define ourselves as an agile company, so being open for feedback and adapting to change is core to being a good fit to our team. Our company's working language is English, so we expect all candidates to effectively communicate (written and spoken).

This position is open for fully remote, but has a requirement of being located in the EU.

What we offer

You will be part of an amazing journey to transform the construction industry with a bold and caring team. Along this path, we will challenge each other, have difficult open conversations, and develop as we learn.

In addition to the above, we will also take care of you and provide you with the right challenges for growth. Some of our benefits:

  • Paid time off (25 vacation days per year)
  • Flexible working hours
  • Full remote possible
  • Share options program
  • Company gatherings twice a year (in person)


Catenda is a Norwegian scale-up company with a global ambition to make the construction industry data-driven, with less waste and greater transparency along the way.

Our company values are two, easy to remember: Openness and Quality.

We believe in open standards for all our customer data to achieve interoperability between applications, from inception, through design and construction onto the maintenance of a building. Another core belief is that our customers should have full control over their data: all data that goes in, can also be exported out.

We value quality of the code and the product by working as a tight and effective distributed development team, preferably asynchronously, often sharing screens to collaborate. Catenda has offices in Oslo and Bergen, composed by an international team of 10+ nationalities working remotely across the EU.

Our solution, Bimsync, is a cloud-based collaboration platform, consisting of a web application, a mobile application and our APIs. Many companies across the world are using our products to build better airports, hospitals, stadiums, homes and roads.

Our technology stack runs 100% on AWS, using the most appropriate technology for the problem at hand. As mentioned before, our backend is mostly in Java and frontend in Javascript, using React, Typescript and React Native for our mobile app (iOS and Android).
