Why join us?
  • We're the biggest platform in a large market — Currently 1/3 of US construction goes through our platform every month. That adds up to ~$4B / day in construction contracts bid out through our system.

    We started with a free bid-management system, and built it to: - 2, 000+ general contractors - 250K+ subcontractors

  • We deliver a ton of value The problem we're solving is huge. Imagine you were asked to work on a giant open source project with thousands of contributors, but you were only allowed to communicate via email. That's currently the state of construction today: there's no formal way of having structured communication together.

    This is a problem because construction is immensely collaborative. For example, the new SF Warriors stadium that we're working on has over 1K companies all interacting. Imagine coordinating purely via email!

  • In the long term, we're looking to capitalize on our data. Our data has implications for the health of the North American economy. Each bid in our network gives us the monetary value of raw materials needed to build a commercial construction project.
