About the role

BuildZoom is the only trusted marketplace for high-value renovations and residential construction, a $250B market in desperate need of disruption. We guide people through the challenge of finding and hiring the right contractor for their project, saving them time, money, and aggravation. We’ve hit an inflection point and are scaling quickly; this year alone, we’ll manage nearly $300M in projects and are doubling each year with a clear path to becoming the category defining company in residential construction.

We’re looking for a uniquely talented individual to join BuildZoom’s executive team and spearhead our financial strategy & execution.

BuildZoom combines marketplace dynamics with a tech-enabled service to provide consumers with an optimal hiring experience. In addition, we license our data to large, corporate partners. Given the multiple dimensions and revenue channels, the ideal candidate is someone attracted to the challenge of guiding the financial strategy for a multi-faceted, early growth-stage startup.
