BuildZoom simplifies remodeling and construction.
BuildZoom is looking for a talented rails engineer. The position includes a competitive salary and generous equity. Working in San Francisco is preferred, but not an absolute requirement. We are willing to sponsor an H1B Visa for the right candidate.
BuildZoom makes it easier for people to hire and research general contractors. Homeowners can use BuildZoom to see a contractor’s complete history based on their building permits, and hire them directly through the site if they want.
The core of our site is a hiring system. Homeowners tell us about a project they need help with, and we try to get them 2-3 bids from truly great contractors, within a few minutes.
We have around 100,000 registered contractors, which helps with problem number 1.
In addition to the hiring system, we have profiles of every licensed contractor in the country, each matched to their work history based on building permits.
Here are some of other cool parts of BuildZoom: * www.buildzoom.com/map -- a nationwide map of building permits * www.buildzoom.com/charts (beta) -- detailed analysis of the remodeling industry
We are well funded, by great investors like Y Combinator, Formation 8, Sam Altman, and many more.
