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.
Did you know that lumber prices are outperforming Bitcoin?
Did you know that the construction industry spends $1.4T on materials annually yet all of that spend takes place offline?
Did you know that the best available data source for tracking construction prices is a physical catalogue that's been published annually since 1945?
1build translates building blueprints into shopping lists of construction materials that can be purchased from local suppliers. Over the last 9 months, we've grown 13x in revenue and facilitated $1B+ in construction spend.
You'll be joining a leadership team with backgrounds at Tesla, Uber, and CloudKitchens. You will be a key part of 1build’s growth strategy and will be responsible for working both strategically and tactically to help grow the company.

We are creating an assembly language for construction that can convert high-level building blueprints into machine-readable algorithmic instructions on how to build.
Typical engineering challenges can include:
- creating a script that calculates how long it takes to assemble an interior partition wall
- cataloguing different lumber materials by application in construction
- developing a graphical interface that allows point-and-click vectorization of construction plans
