Careers at Procore
Procore provides a range of construction management software solutions to commercial and individual customers, designed to help businesses manage construction projects more efficiently between teams.
Procore was founded in 2003 by Tooey Courtemanche (“Courtemanche”). The idea behind Procore’s business came about as a result of difficulties Courtemanche experienced as the owner of a construction project, namely the development of a new home for his family. At the time, Courtemanche was forced to manage his communications with contractors by fax and phone calls, making it a very complex project to coordinate various different contractors and parties.
Courtemanche subsequently embarked on designing a more streamlined and efficient alternative system. His first step was to build a web-based collaboration tool based on the Microsoft Project schedule for the job, which made it possible to gather feedback from team members and coordinate actions.
The system was a success, and led Courtemanche to pursue a commercial avenue for a dedicated construction management product. Courtemanche took a year off from operating his software development company and focused on opportunities within the construction market, including visiting job sites and speaking with project managers.
The first version of the Procore product included a system for managing information requests and a way to share project schedules. The Company’s offerings have since been developed significantly, with the Company providing an exhaustive cloud-based product, tailored to the needs of individual clients. It is currently the most popular construction software application available worldwide. Recent reports estimate the Company’s value to be in the region of $500 million.
