What we do here
At Power, our technology team builds a custom suite of products that run our entire business. We create and deploy complete solutions for marketing, sales, operations, finance and more. We even have a custom communications platform that connects everyone in the company. We use cutting edge technologies like augmented reality, computer vision, machine learning, speech recognition and processing, geospatial data and a variety of mobile platforms.

We enjoy all the benefits of a startup to move fast, ship rapidly and iterate quickly, but within an established organization that is well-funded and profitable. We get to dip our toes in many different, fascinating areas and solve unique, challenging problems that could on their own be standalone apps or companies. We’re a tech powerhouse hidden inside a remodeling company.

We value diversity of all types at Power and our team is made up of a kind, thoughtful group of people with a wide range of backgrounds. We actively try to find people with different perspectives and experiences to the ones we already have.

Tell us about the internal culture at Power Home Remodeling.

Our executive team is fun and quirky. Tonally, the vibe is more informal, with an open door policy that gives employees accessibility to business stakeholders when they need it. 

We have a culture of openness, collaboration and support. When you come on board at Power, you’re treated like family right off the bat. We’ve set up environments within our workspace that allow for lively group brainstorms and problem solving, as well as quieter and more formal work settings to cater to everyone’s work styles.

What kinds of projects do technologists get to work on?

Our Business Technology department works hand-in-hand with all of the other divisions within Power, developing our NITRO platform to support the internal operations of the entire company. 

For example, one team recently revitalized our large corporate directory, adding some flavor with gifs. Another team developed a new internal workflow program for the communications and branding department. When the HR department wants to roll out new benefits, our devs are the ones building those features from scratch. 

How is Power reimagining the exterior remodeling industry?

Our goal is to improve the world.

We’re setting customer service expectations higher for the entire industry. We work hard to offer services and professionalism you aren’t seeing with other companies. We are very thoughtful in the products we sell, focusing on sustainability, solar power and energy-efficiency.

People always come first, both employees and customers. Every decision is made by how it’ll affect people. We really listen to our employees — when we decide to open up new offices, we listen to where our people want to work; the lives they want to live. It’s a very human place to work.

As you continue to grow, what kinds of opportunities do you have for technologists?

We are actively hiring for developers, UX designers and Scrum masters.
