Our Mission

Transforming the $1.3 trillion dollar old-school construction industry using data, natural language processing, and machine learning. We are improving the remodeling experience for hundreds of millions of people. BuildZoom receives a million monthly users and is growing like crazy.

Tech Stack

Our backend stack includes: Python, Ruby on Rails, Redis, Aurora, MySQL, Postgres, Redshift, Elasticsearch, AWS. For high throughput batch processing and streaming, we use tools like Spark, Kinesis, and Kafka. We're looking to introduce Alooma/Fivetran, Snowflake/Redshift, AWS Cloudwatch, AWS Lambda, and AWS EMR. We’re a data company at heart, ingesting vast volumes of construction and real estate data to gain deep insight into the construction marketplace. Our bleeding edge data ingestion framework has helped us accumulate one of the most complete and timely data sets in the industry.

Core Values

We embrace unconventional solutions and foster a culture of curiosity, creativity and experimentation. We reflect on our successess and losses, and are dedicated to constant learning. We believe our team is greater than the sum of each individual. From engineering to design to marketing, we bring together the world’s top talent to shape the future of building. Together, we work hard, laugh a lot, draw lots of diagrams, and encourage each other to learn and grow. From running club to museum outings to ski trips, we share the things that inspire us. Where there is a big problem, we see an even greater opportunity. Improving the remodeling experience for hundreds of millions of people is a huge task, but it is often the hardest challenges that are the most rewarding. Our enormous, unique data engine provides us with new insights into the industry and is brimming with untapped possibilities. We work hard towards our mission, but the best thing about BuildZoom is our team. We maintain a fun and supportive environment focused on learning, teaching, collaborating, and building cool things.
