About the role

Did you know that lumber prices have outperformed Bitcoin last year?

Did you know that the construction industry spends $1.4T on materials annually yet all of that spend takes place offline?

Did you know that the best available data source for tracking construction prices is a physical catalogue that's been published annually since 1945?

1build translates building blueprints into shopping lists of construction materials that can be purchased from local suppliers. Over the last 9 months, we've grown 13x in revenue and facilitated $1B+ in construction spend.

Our leadership team have backgrounds at Tesla, Uber, Bechtel, and CloudKitchens. You will be a key part of 1build’s growth strategy and will be responsible for working at both strategic and tactical levels to help grow the company quickly and effectively.
