About 1build

We're a team that's committed to intellectual honesty. We help each other get better through open discussion and respectful feedback.

We are passionate about creating a world where beautiful buildings are designed and built by algorithms.

About the role

Skills: Python, PostgreSQL, GraphQL, Kubernetes, React, TypeScript, Go

1build (YC W20) is automating cost estimation in construction with a combination of human and machine intelligence. Our marketplace of expert cost estimators is scaled by an internal "programming language" for buildings called Owl. Owl allows cost estimators in our marketplace to efficiently convert building blueprints into shopping lists of construction materials and labor.

Our vision is to codify the language buildings. 1build’s goal is to use data and algorithmic logic to become an end-to-end support system for builders as they manage projects from cost estimation to bidding to material procurement.

We are a distributed start-up with an inspiring culture and countless opportunities for fast-paced upward career progression. We’ve closed a $5.5M seed round from top venture funds like Y Combinator, Initialized Capital, MetaProp, and others. Our founding team comes from companies like Tesla, Apple, WeWork, Uber & Samsara.
